I seriously hope that they will scrap this, it gives way too much power to the character, and since they are on Goku's side, it takes away so much of the tension, since there is really nothing to fear even in the worst scenario, since Whis can restore it (okay, okay, I know, the Dragon Balls themselves are taking away the risk of something bad happening permanently, but still..). Unless of course we'll go to heights where even Whis is killed... I believe that it should either be scrapped, or be given a very serious limit.

In fact, the whole environment of Fukkatsu no F made the viewers' feel the lack of real tension and the inability by Freeza to, even after reaching a level of power close to/on par/above Super Saiya-jin God and Super Saiya-jin God Super Saiya-jin Goku and Vegeta, become a serious menace. On one hand, we had Beerus and Whis present, so even if Goku and/or Vegeta failed, they'd eventually take care of Freeza themselves. On the other hand, as you pointed out, Whis' time-reversal ability, although limited to 3 minutes, pretty much provides him with the ability to basically undo any damage done by anyone whatsoever, rethink the strategy and turn totally hopeless circumstances into an easy victory. On yet another hand, I've always defended Goku was holding back as SSJGSSJ during his fight with Freeza and even Golden Freeza, given how relaxed he always is throughout the movie, even when/after fighting Freeza in his Golden form, which suggests he never really ever viewed Freeza as capable of defeating or killing him or the others. Besides, both Goku and Vegeta as Super Saiya-jin God Super Saiya-jin would be eventually able to take care of him. All of this combined can turn the experience of Fukkatsu no F as a failed attempt to have Freeza become a serious menace, so the entire atmosphere of the movie wasn't in any significant way more serious, dark or dramatic than the one in BoG.
