1st 30 minutes very slow in building the storyline. Last part of movie was confusing as far as what the movie was about. Didn't figure it out until after the movie was over. The movie trailer is misleading as far as this being an action movie.

so tired! almost fell asleep. it was poorly edited, the characters had no depth, the plot was a bad rehash of so many sci-fi films that were actually good... i actually was laughing half of the time it was so bad. the first 45 minutes could have been dealt with in 15. just sad...

I loved every second of this movie... Tom Cruise was at his best.. a great script and cast, a very dynamic love story, and a very harsh plot... the world is run by a machine, not human... I felt it was in a way an allegory of our own society in the future, so I could really relate to what happens to humanity!........Historically critics love movies that have blurred morals etc etc... this one was life affirming--family affirming--and had a clear moral aspect. So I would expect critics to pan it. Do not be fooled, this is great. It may not be the best film of all time, but as a sci fi fan, I consider it excellent and loved my experience... I don't know what more I would want, the plot holes the press claimed were non-existent. You have to see this if you like movies at all. Period.

How can you not see the latest Cruise action/mystery movie!!? What? Are you letting the critics stop you?! If you listen to the critics, you'll miss out on your own view of things.
The story-line presents a unique twist on identities even up to the ending, which can be a bit tricky to follow as the evil and mysterious plot gets unraveled. It took me awhile after the movie to finally see the brilliance of it. Very interesting!
So, go and see the magic of an awesome movie - fantastic cinematography and special effects, great character portrayals and acting, valuable message in the story. And know that, when Cruise is at the helm, life is sweeter for it!

Movie was a 'pretty good' Sci-Fi. Wasn't really anything new - combined the plots of several science fiction stories - made the story-line and ending very predictable.
