The main thing that keeps audiences glued throughout its running time is that it's a love story, easily one of the best American love stories of the past year.
100
An exhilarating balancing act, at once a science-fiction romp, a paranoid thriller and a philosophical treatise.

George Nofi pulls off a relative rarity in his feature film debut by creating a genuinely romantic fantasy suspense thriller.
75
An enjoyable piece of hokum - your basic doom-laden parable of metaphysical sci-fi mind control, only with a surprise romantic sparkle.
70
Everybody loves a do-over, but this could become tedious were it not for the undeniable chemistry of the two leads, whose dialogue crackles like cellophane.
63
Compelling enough, a sort of "Inception"-lite, but the plot holes take it off course.
60
Unfortunately, the fantasy-thriller they're in eventually falls apart, becoming a much sillier, less substantial movie than its lead actors deserve.
50
Two movies for the price of one, though only one of them-a fragmented romance within a ponderous parable-qualifies as a bargain.
50
A movie where the action scenes feel like filler, the romantic leads have little magnetism, and, before long, its metaphysical underpinnings fall to pieces.
40
Maddeningly repetitious.
38
What Dick rendered potent, Nolfi renders preposterous.
