The Independent Culture

“This time-travel crap, just fries your brain like a egg...” maintains Jeff Daniels's cerebral thug, and the first hour of this mind-bending sci-fi is a little too mind-frying.

However, the second hour, when the actual plot kicks in and Emily Blunt arrives with her spooky young son, is terrific. Joseph-Gordon Levitt's assassin (above with Bruce Willis) excels at bumping off time-travelling criminals until he confronts his older self, fails to kill “himself” and ends up holed up at Blunt's farmhouse. An entertaining actioner with an uncompromising finale.
