Fair enough.

Sci-fi deals with things that might be impossible, but at least there is some science behind it that could explain how it could be possible.

Well, pardon me for wanting closure and a little explaination to the rules of this pretend universe that is being created. I love the good old days of when sci-fi rules were explained like Arnold explaining how the T-1000's shape shifting powers worked or Yoda explaining how the force works to Luke Skywalker. But those days are long gone and this movie is proof of that. "Oh yeah, I can only see two minutes into future ... unless I'm around Jessica Biel. Why? I don't know, just because. Oh and I may or may not stop this bomb that may or not go off, I don't know, you'll have to use your imagine with that one". Could you imagine how mad people would have been if Luke fired at that weak spot on the Death Star and then the screen cut to black and the credits rolled?! I'm sorry, but that's no way to make a successful movie that everyone will love and cherish for years to come.

Yes, he can, but it would take time to forsee the RIGHT outcome and then more time to FOLLOW THROUGH on that outcame. By then it could be too late.

99%? More like 50-50. He has tens of thousands of possible outcomes to follow, and time is against him. He might make it to the bomb on time, or he might not find it at all. In the end, the bomb is just a Hitchock "McGuffin" device and the audience is told that the whole bomb subplot of the movie didn't matter. It's like saying "Hey, remember how we made this whole thing with the bomb seems like a big deal ... yeah, it's not really a big deal at all".

I find it highly unlikely for a person to not succeed in something if he has unlimited ways to change the way he tries achieve it. It's like a test with multiple choice. You don't know a question so you guess out of 4 choices. You find out you circled in the wrong answer. You go back in time and change it. If it's wrong again, you go back and change it. Eventually, you'll get the right answer and that's what the ending of this film was trying to portray.

Ah, but it was a TIME bomb. It doesn't matter if it's a multipule choice test, if it's timed, and you don't get your answers down within that amount of time, you fail. Again, this is why the ending was a chilffhanger, we have NO IDEA if he makes it to the bomb on time or not, and thus the movie is a waste of our time.

Yes, see, that's my. We have no f***ing clue if he does stop it or not. That is why it's a CLIFFHANGER. But I can point this out a million times, but it looks like it won't matter. And seeing as how this movie is 3 years old and didn't win any Razzies, it's pointless to be talking about it anyway.
