    Watched this movie today. Was interesting, nothing extra spectacular, but found the way it developed and ended very well tied out. I was just glad I didn't have to come out of a time travel movie and have to genuinely think about the events that occurred, but rather got to forget it and just be entertained.

    Although, I do enjoy a good time travel movie that makes you think about it in-depth (like 'Primer').

    Anyone else have any thoughts?


    I for one did kind of wish that Cid ended up
    becoming Akira and take over the world with his telekinesis powers, or at least get to see how he became the Rainmaker

    Really liked it. Best action flick I've seen in a long time. Bruce Willis was great. Plot was engaging. Characters memorable.

    Better than 95% of action movies I've seen.

    A lot of cool ideas but so, so many plot holes.

    A few plot points were kinda apparent before the "reveals" but I didn't let that bother my enjoyment.

    After the movie my GF and I kinda bitched a little at the inconsistency of the time travel canon as they presented it in the movie but agreed that our nit picking didn't detract from having a good time while watching. Recommended.
