When Howard and Madeleine are taking on the sidewalk of the street in Manhattan, traffic is moving swiftly while the camera is in one direction, and traffic is completely stopped when the camera is in the opposite direction. See more »
[as the personification of Time]
Time, they say you heal all wounds but they don't talk about how you destroy all that's good in the world, how you turn beauty into ash. Now that's some bullshit Howard. Now if love is creation and death is destruction, I'm just the terrain in between. You don't understand time, no-one understands time. Einstein was close when he said i was just an illusion.

The opening logos of Warner Brothers Pictures, New Line Cinema, Village Roadshow Pictures, Ratpac Entertainment, and Overbrook Entertainment are all in pure white, including the backgrounds, which then goes to a line of pure white domino type blocks ending with a clock shaped circle (also with pure white blocks on a white background) as the movies dialogue starts.

Yet another occasion that I'm glad I didn't listen to the critics. This film had everything in it for me and Will Smith once again showed what a fantastic actor he truly is. It has a great cast of award nominees (including Dame Helen Mirren) who make this film a real roller-coaster of emotions. Each actor having their own unique part to play giving the film great depth. This is my first ever review on IMDb and it's because I enjoyed the film so much and I believe the critics got it so very wrong on this occasion! I felt I had to stand behind the film and great actors to prove this is not the underdog of films but can stand side by side with many great films.
