I was surprised as to how engrossing this film is. 1st off, it did have a few big aspects going for it right from jumpstreet-before I even put the disc in; a) I'm a huge Willis fan & have over a dozen of his films in my DVD library, b) I absolutley love Emily Blunt ever since I saw her in 2010's "The Wolfman", & c) ANY dramatic, non-comedy role w/ the great Jeff Daniels is something that I'm going to check out. These reasons are why I purchased the film prior to viewing it. I knew that I'd want it in my collection, I just didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. The directing by Rian Johnson is terriffic, Levitt is perfect for the role of 'young Joe', & the makeup he wore (to make himself look like a young Willis) is stunning. I give him tons of credit here because he not only had to play the Joe character, but he also had to play the physical & vocal mannerisms of Willis-both of which he did amazingly well! I've always been into the subject of metaphysics-how EVERYTHING in the physical world is connected 1 way or another, & how (if time-travel were a reality) altering 1 slight aspect of the past can &/or will alter the course of the future. This film is a metaphysical sci-fi/action bonanza! I've viewed it 3 times now (& it's only been out on disc since New Year's Eve) & I know that it will be 1 of those films that I'll watch @ least twice/year. It's fast-paced, very well-written, extremely well acted, & just dosen't seem to get old. I give it 5 stars w/out any hesitation. It's 1 of the best movies that I've seen in 2 years!
