    What a Stupid Hoaky film! I wished I had put on the previous arrival, which was a whole lot better than this mess!!!! What a piece of #%*@!!
  • Good with a goofy ending

    By StoryDelver
    Good acting and the first 3/4s are riveting. Amy Adams is great in this film. It gets all woo woo and goofy at the very end (a pretty pointless time travel stupidity) which is a serious flaw, but overlook that and it's one of the best sf movies in recent years. Worth at least one watch.

    Would of made an interest short story but is unfortunately stretched and stretched to an agonizingly long film. Very little character development and the ending payoff is painfully spoon fed to you.

    I really really enjoyed this movie. I cried, I jumped. It made me feel alot of things. I was rooting for the two main characters. I wouldn't buy it for $20 tho, try renting on amazon/somewhere else.

    Profoundly moving. Even the Harshest acting critics in my family loved the performances, which really brought the story to life and drew us into it. Intriguing perspective on the nature of time and a different, more circular and holistic way of experiencing, thinking, and communicating life. Nicely layered with nuanced, multidimensional representations of the main characters’s stream of consciousness as the events she experiences change her to the depths of her being. Lots of meaningful messages are woven in, yet subtle and not preachy. Watched it twice and would watch it again. Loved it.
  • Worst movie ever...

    By Worst movie I have ever seen.
    I saw this movie in theaters. It was the worst movie ever. Do not waste your money downloading it.
  • So boring

    By Ipadslave
    An interesting take but a very slow moving atmospheric movie with just about zero action. Kind of a sci-fi think-piece.
