    Am I the only one who didn't like it? It's was crippled by its own ambition and overstuffed with too many ideas, none of which were really anything new. The time-shifting narrative was really jumpy and made the film feel disjointed. It was just really unfocused. At times it felt over-stylized and pretentious and at other times, bland. I can't say I downright hated it though. I can respect that the director at least tried to make something extraordinary, even if the execution wasn't quite up to par for me. At least he didn't just take the easy way out by settling for mediocrity like the majority of Hollywood films. However, it's flaws can't be ignored. I would give it a 5/10 (which is a negative rating, since I use Rotten Tomatoes' rating system). 9 years 8 months ago
