    Yeah it's formulaic but who cares when it contains this many laughs. Great fun, most I've laughed during a film in years. Love it.

    It was OK. Basically a remake of Episode IV. Typical convoluted storyline that if you lost concentration for a second meant you had no idea what was going on or why.

    Quite possibly the worst film I have ever watched. Utterly reprehensible drivel that wasted two and a half hours of my life.

    Hard to review. It's a good film, a very good film but I don't think it's an all-time classic.

    A lot shorter than I remember and for some reason the story felt less involved, especially the whole Natalie sub-plot. I remembered a lot from previous viewings, not sure if that helped. I've also seen the forward version before.

    If you've never seen it before make sure you keep your eyes open throughout as there are several subtle clues. The story runs backwards and it will keep you thinking long after viewing as you piece it all together.
