My father was fond of barking, “Boy, I’ll stomp your nuts!”
Have you ever been kicked in the nuts? I mean right square in the balls. Stars flash in your eyes and you drop like a hot sack of diarrhea.
The point of my incoherent lead is this: I imagine a swift kick to the balls is what time travel is like. At the very least, I know that is what time travel stories are like. Even when done right, the majority inevitably try to pull a fast one on the audience.
Time and time again, not just in stories involving time travel, the story and characters will draw us in, make us love them, and then, inexplicably, the rug is pulled from underneath us for a glass bottom boat **** storm, sans the glass bottom boat.

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 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 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!
