Ok. I have mixed feelings about this one. First off, I wouldn’t have seen it, if it weren’t for the fact that my friend, Frank wanted to see it so badly. I just don’t like time travel movies…and yes, I know, he just ‘sees’ the future in this one, doesn’t travel to it, but it’s almost the same thing, when you think about it. I don’t want to ruin this movie for anyone that hasn’t seen it, but I really like it…until the end. I turned to my friend about halfway through, and told him I was surprised at how good this was…. they didn’t get all crazy with the future stuff, since he could only see two minutes into the future, so therefore, it kind of worked. Finally, a timeline movie (time travel, or premonition type movie) that I actually thought made some scientific, therefore story line-type sense! Boy, was I wrong! It really was good till the end, but about oh…. maybe half hour from the end I realized what the ending probably was going to be, and I said out loud, so that Frank heard me …”Oh no… don’t tell me that’s how they end it!” and sure enough…what I had been thinking, was
exactly what they did at the end… .I was sooooo disappointed, and now I re-affirm my position, yet again…. NO TIME TRAVEL OR TIMELINE MOVIES!! EVER !! THEY DON”T MAKE SCIENTIFIC SENSE FOR A LINEAR MOVIE!! PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!! Whew…. so I’ve said my piece…. watch it, love it, call me afterwards and tell me how right I am about that ending! :) I give this movie three and a half stars out of five, because up until the end, it had me….it really did!
