Very much enjoyed this strange, action-packed time travel story with Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing Bruce Willis as a younger man and Bruce Willis playing Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an older man. They're both assassins. And the movie never ceased to surprise me. ( SPOILERS.

I saw this yesterday, and I think it's the best movie I've seen all year. A really excellent sci-fi crime drama with the best world-building I've seen in any movie since Blade Runner. You can imagine any number of other stories that could be set in the same reality. Just a fantastic, fantastic film.

Being a time travel movie starring Bruce Willis, it reminded me of Twelve Monkeys.

Been a good month for sci-fi films, as both (Judge) Dredd and Looper being well worth the trip to the theatre.

I am also a big fan of Looper. And I agree with Tenken about Blade Runner. (One of the reasons that I disliked Dredd is that it didn't spend enough time with those world-building details.)

All of Rian Johnson't films are worth checking out.

I did a (super-geeky? maybe?) analysis of the connections between his three films (Brick, The Brothers Bloom and Looper) for Sound On Sight:

I finally got to see this today, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Jeff Daniels was especially good in this, along with the major players. The story was ever-changing which kept you on your toes as a viewer. I like stories like that, as you root for and against Bruce Willis and JGL at different times. Also, the women weren't bad to look at.
