    Predestination is one of those science fiction films that perfectly exemplifies everything that confuses and fascinates me about time travel. It's both brilliantly cerebral and mind bogglingly complex. But the movie tightly tells the complex story in 90 minutes, without sacrificing any nuance. It's one of the few movies that I can say I instantly knew I was going to buy the blu-ray right after the credits rolled. Among the many impressive aspects to the story, is the story-telling structure. It feels equally part Nolan and Kubrickian, with a bit of a David Lynch/David Fincher vibe mixed in. However most importantly, Predestination feels like an original film bolstered by performances from the always great Ethan Hawke, as well as the career making turn from Sarah Snook. The depths both of them take their roles, but particularly Snook, is fascinating. And surprisingly neither of them were considered for Oscar noms in 2015. In short, Predestination is one of the best sci-fi's of the last decade. 10/10

    Time travel films are normally bizarre and intriguing, but Predestination takes things a step beyond. Sarah Snook makes for a sympathetic lead. The time travel special effect has a great visceral feeling to it. All-in-all, Predestination is a compelling watch and a must-see for fans of intelligent sci-fi.

    A very good film. Well-written and acted, and I love the twist ending. This is a thoroughly entertaining and mind-blowing film. I would highly recommend it.

    "You know who she is. And you understand who you are. And now maybe you're ready to understand who I am." Absolutely mind-blowing, Predestination is a fascinating high-concept science fiction thriller. Based on a short story, a temporal agent recruits a protégé and gives him a chance to avenge a wrong from his past. The writing is especially clever, and explores issues of free will, time paradoxes, identity, and fate. And, Ethan Hawke gives an incredibly performance that's quite powerful. However, the plot gets a little convoluted at times, and it doesn't really come into focus until the end. Still, Predestination is a compelling and provocative film that's incredibly daring.
