This Movie Stars: Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Joe, Bruce Willis as Old Joe, Emily Blunt as Sara, and Pierce Gagnon as Cid
Going into this movie, I was cautiously optimistic. I heard from other people that it was good, but I was fearful that the time-travel element would be either too confusing or would be riddled with plot-holes. Luckily, this movie was neither of those. This is a fantastic film, and I was really impressed on how good it actually was. Rian Johnson did a great job directing, and I really appreciated the effort into making Joseph Gordon-Levitt actually looking like Bruce Willis, that doesn't usually happen. Speaking of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, he did a great job as Joe in this movie, I really felt sorry for his character, even though he's not really a good person. He does drugs and kills people for a living, and I was still sympathetic for his character. Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt were also good, but Pierce Gagnon, the kid in the movie was amazing. Usually kid actors are just plain terrible, but this is the rare occasion where a kid actor is actually a really good actor. As for flaws in the movie, I really don't have much at all, but one flaw I have is that i thought that the character Kid Blue (played by Noah Segan) was kind of an annoying character and he didn't have much in the story, but that's about it for flaws
This is an excellent movie, and I highly recommend that you check it out 9.7./10
