Though a science fiction movie, its structured as a tragedy, indeed with an exquisite poignancy that reminds one of Sophocles. Clever and at moments quite funny.

Weird movie. Brad Pitt is a absolute lunatic -- played a very convincing part.

I've always had problems with time travel movies since the inevitable contradictions that arise always bothered me unless you assume we live in a multiverse where all timelines are possible (which doesn't make it better). This movie has those same contradictions, if you can look beyond them and treat it as an action yarn it's acceptable.

I have mixed feelings about this film. The acting is decent, the story is intriguing, suspense is everywhere, the movie is mind bending, and the plot twist is wicked. However, the style of the film and it's downright bizarreness really got to me. It took away from the enjoyability. Some scenes were so strange and unnecessary it left me wondering what the heck just happened. Overall, the movie and how done it is is a 4.5/5. However, how much I enjoyed it was probably a 1.5/5.

People who say this is pointless, just aren't getting it--the devil is in the details. You really have to pay attention. Bruce Willis, who I don't usually care for, is amazing in this movie. If you're looking for big battles and explosions--this isn't it. If you want great writing, clever plots, and good acting this is for you.

Fantastic movie and one of those films that needs to be watched again in order to catch the full story.
The three lead characters are all top performers at their peak.

The story is a bit "out there" but believable enough, especially with such a top notch group of actors weaving this sci-fi tale.

Brad Pitt steals the show and I totally agree with his characters rantings about society and television. That scene is worth watching as it really is food for thought.

Better than expected apocalypse movie, considering it's a Bruce Willis film, but not particularly great.

Excellent performances by Pitt and Bruce Willis. A true classic.

James Cole: Look at them. They're just asking for it. Maybe the human race deserves to be wiped out.
Jeffrey Goines: Wiping out the human race? That's a great idea. That's great. But more of a long-term thing. I mean, first we have to focus on more immediate goals.
