Truly one of the biggest messes of a movie that I've ever been exposed to. I feel so sorry for Bruce Willis... How he got tied up in this disaster just makes no sense... I can sum up the movie in a few words...
Joseph Gordon-Levitt grabs a weapon... puts liquid drugs in his eyes to get high (very similar to being in a K Hole) and stands before a white tarp... a person appears out of nowhere and he shoots a big hole in them... He collects silver and gold bars and plans to go to France but ends up in Asia... Just replay that scenario about 30 times.. there is your movie.

My husband was the one who thought I would like the moviet because I'm in love with Bruce Willis(among other male actors), and I really enjoyed it. My husband loved it because of the action. And it did have plenty of that..
I really liked everything about tis movie. The acting and directing was good but the special effects were really great.
My beleif is that this movie is not for younger children, but age 13+ is ok to see this movie, with a parent. I say this because as certain scences are come up, they can ask questiion regarding it. I would want my granchild to ask me so that he/she could get the correct prespective regarding the scene.
Over all, I really enjoyed this movie and suggest that it be seen by parents and older childrens. I truly believe it would be enjoyed by this age group.

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!

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!

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
