I think many of the comments below never gave the movie a chance. It's not really about science because it's made to be an allegory. What would happen if you could bend time and space and metaphysically reach those of the past? Could you alter the future of the present? Some of these questions revolve around love as a theme as something that transcends the laws of physics and science. Thus, many people who see the psuedo-science of this film will not see its meaning and will find it pretentious or otherwise terrible. Think "Inception," but about time, space and love instead of dreams. It's always a trip watching Nolans' films!

Be warned: it's essentially a children's movie. Farmer turns up at a secret NASA base and gets onto the next mission with a humanoid robot. . . And that's when I hit the eject button.

This is a pretty good movie, not the best but interesting.

It dragged a bit at the beginning, but during the second half it started to pick up. I was a little confused at some parts, since I'm really not a science person.

A movie worth watching. Probably a good idea to plan to pay attention or some aspects may not coalesce to form a complete movie experience. Certainly an interesting take on the eventual demise of the ability of humans to live on Earth.

Interesting movie! In some places, it can be difficult to understand! For some people it can be boring.

Special effects are fantastic on all accounts and Michael Caine is as formidable as ever. I didn't really care much about the rest of the performers or the plot.

Pretentious production. Stumbles on itself in its efforts to be intellectual and edgy. When a man finds himself within a space-time scenario from which he is able to influence the past, he sends messages into the past which the viewer watches take place over time for those characters who exist in the past. The viewer witnesses the man in the unusual space-time practicing his abilities to send messages into the past, and improve on his abilities to find those signals through which the characters in the past will accurately and fully perceive the message he is trying to convey. So we see the man outside of normal space-time experiencing time's passage in a linear fashion, sending messages to characters in the past. The linear time experienced by the man outside of normal space-time is translated to the linear time of the characters in the past. One would expect that a man outside of normal space-time would be able to find new ways of trying to get his message across to the people in the past without time necessarily transpiring for those people in the past. After all, if it doesn't work the first time, he just tries again in a way that time does not pass for his recipients in the past. From here, the entire plot loses all cohesion.

Furthermore, the very presence of this man outside of normal space-time and the core of the plot structure of the movie (i.e. people traveling through space) DOES NOT TAKE PLACE unless his initial message is not fully grasped by those in the past (that message being 'don't leave', or 'stay'). So it is needed for this man outside of time to not be effective at sending messages, and for his recipients to also experience time's passage between the messages he sends. The plot needs for time to basically correlate between people within normal space-time and the man outside of normal space-time. Again, one would expect that if you had all the time in the universe to get a message to a particular pair of people at a particular point in normal linear time, you could just keep sending your messages to those people at that point in time (basically replaying their time for them until they understood what you wanted them to understand).

Anyway, no plot cohesion. The performance by the lead actor is actually generally quite good.

Do not go gentle into that good night; Old age should burn and rave at close of day. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

From IMDb:

Doyle: You can't just think about your family. You have to think bigger than that.
Cooper: I'm thinking about my family and millions of other families.

Doyle: We have a mission.
Cooper: Our mission does not work if the people on Earth are dead by the time we pull it off.

Brand: You might have to decide between seeing your children again and the future of the human race.

Cooper: Once you're a parent, you're the ghost of your children's future.

Cooper: We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.
