The preview made it look like a deep, confusing puzzle/mystery type movie (like a less gimmicky Memento). I did have elements of that, with the multiple viewpoints, but that gimmick really only lasted a bit more than half the movie. The remaining half was the standard but satisfying "defeat the badguy" type movie. It was entertaining, exciting, and thankfully the groundhog-day-style repeats didn't get old since they changed it up quite a bit. Ultimately, it was a good movie but not one you'd need to watch more than once.
