My second viewing of this perfect script with peak performances by Willis and Pitt has me convinced that this is one of the best Sci-fi films ever made !!

Watch it a few times and you'll realize this story makes perfect sense. Unlike Gilliam's other films he did not write this one, so it is completely logical, including the conclusion!

Outside of Brad Pitt's awesome performance, this movie is pointless.

This is sci-fi with a very convoluted plot. Not easy to follow. Only for the very patient and hardcore sci-fi fans who believe in time travel.

I like most of Bruce Willis's movies, but not this one. It's a real junker! Disjointed and all over the place. Madeleine Stowe is always easy on the eyes, though. Anyhow, you can't win them all.

Ha,ha,ha,ha. This movie is out there!! I really enjoyed the performances of Mr. Bruce Willis and Mr. Brad Pitt. Mr. Pitt's character had me laughing as the looney in the asylum. Although this movie contains all around sound, it's still best to watch this on your HOMETHEATER. You'll appreciate the story while trying to figure out what's going on watching this movie. I enjoyed it and have it as part of my collection. I'm giving this way-out-there movie 5 stars!!!!! Great characters, very good story, and solid performances by the actors. Two slightly burnt cheese and ham sandwiches on whole wheat bread, a pint of chocolate chunk icecream, and milk.

A really good movie. Keeps you on your toes trying to figure everything out. I will point out one flaw in the movie... and you can figure out the rest... if you get shot in the past, and you come back to the future with the bullet in your body; you can not carbon date the bullet to the past... it's freshly minted... you just got shot... it came through time with you. All the science flaws aside this is an all time favourite of mine. Both Pitt and Willis went on to play roles that reflect the style they acted within this movie.

The script is incredibly good, and the same can be said about the performances of both Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt. This a very good movie thats not worth missing, I would highly recommend this movie to science fiction fans.

This movie twists and turns and begs for a second watching. Great story and good acting. A more visceral and graphic view of the future. Along the lines of Millenium.

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.
