This is one of the best movies, certainly the best action movies, my wife and I have seen seen this year! It wasn't the typical action movie. Kept you guessing and did a good job of keeping the viewer in the loop. Very good!

Another Stunner From Rian Johnson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt!

By BigBrainCell
Written September 29, 2012
This was a more violent movie than I had expected, but I am not sure why, given the gritty nature of writer/director Rian Johnson and lead actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt's last outing together, "Brick", Johnson's 2005 writing and directorial debut. A film noir stunner, that movie played like the grittiest Bogart movie you'd ever seen, only, this one was set in high school. Oh, and the part of Bogart was played by Gordon-Levitt, as if he was born to play the part. I am pretty sure that the tension I felt and the starkness of some of the violence was more about the art of exclusion rather than inclusion. I think that it is a testimony to the way the writer/director Rian Johnson chose his effects shots and gruesome details so carefully, while allowing the rest of the movie to have such a grounded-in-reality feel. In this movie, the future isn't so altogether different than our own time. As in Brick, you just have no idea where this story could take you, but you just have to find out!

Unbelievably bad

This movie was bad from the beginning to the end. It was the first time that I left my seat to make a phone call during a movie. It was so ridiculous, that there was laughter in the theater even though there were no comic scenes

Not What I expected

Wow This movie is a true work of art. It kept me guessing until the very end, which is rare these days. I liked the fact that they kept it believable and did not go overboard with the time travel aspects or the action. Definitely a must see.

It almost had something.

They blatantly disregard the temporal rules in order to attract viewers for more carnal reasons. This is a big mistake in this movie, as this movie is centered around time-travel. This movie feels B movie, with all the typical red-flags (seemingly purposeless nudity, the over-use of the f-word, and disturbing, graphic images). The end does have some interesting developments, but the most awesome parts of the whole story are really over-looked and under-explored. This will come as a huge disappointment to the viewer. The best part in the whole movie is the end. Which is why I rated it so-so. 4.5 out of 10 nice-try.
