Warning! This review contains Spoliers

  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in this movie, so you know you won't get crap

  • So I watched this movie knowing nothing except that it was well received

  • So the plot goes like this: In 2074, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent 30 years into the past, where a hired gun (Gordon-Levitt) awaits. The thing is, if you live long enough, the mobsters need to get rid of the hired guns by sending their future selves back in time to "close the loop". Watch the movie, you will get it.

  • good plot, good action, good chemistry between all the characters

  • I thought that this movie was pretty clever and original in terms of plot. I guess it was based on a book.

  • well paced, not too dificult to follow and the sotry makes sense

  • Woah, supernatural powers! But, how on Earth did these people "develop" supernatural abilities? If there is one serious problem with this movie, it's this.

  • How Gordon-Levitt turns into Bruce Willis in 30 years, I have no idea.

  • I love Sci-fi, but not time travel or supernatural stories in general. But this was good.

  • If you liked Inception, you'll love this one too.

in a nutshell

Hollywood Sci-fi still has hope.

Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.
