Did anyone else see this and think "what an amazing example of great storytelling"? The plot was so focused, the characters developed and compelling. I read a review on io9.com that stated that, unlike a lot of other genre stories, the genre was not what drove the plot, it was not a "hot wheels track" for the character to go down. Do you think this plot was a good example of having the conflict come from the struggle between the characters and not against a fantasy/sci fi evil? Does that in your opinion make a better story? Just wondering about other people's thoughts.

The story was conceptually flawed in many ways and runs into the same brick wall that all time travel related film do, i.e. the paradox of cause and effect in a linear timeline.
Destroy the egg to take out the chicken and the chicken is never born. If the chicken is never born it removes the motivation/incentive/need to remove the egg. If that makes any sense.

In spite of the inherent paradoxes in any time travel story, I enjoyed this one better than most, chiefly because the actors made the characters so believable.

I agree that every time travel story has the same inherent plot hole but I agree that this one was very well done and none of those plot holes were apparent while watching the movie. I also think that the good writing had a lot to do with that. And apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so: http://io9.com/5970576/director-jaso...erves-an-oscar
