Just got back from seeing this one and it's great. I was expecting it to be good, I'd heard a lot of good things about it, but I wasn't expecting
it to be this good.
It's basically a cyber-punk western. Yeah, it's set in 2044 and yeah there's time travel, but if you're a fan of westerns and you watch this movie
you'll know what I'm talking about. And it's not just that certain characters use future revolvers. It's how the characters act and what they do.
And the pacing. It's not all action, all the time. There is quite a bit of action and it's very good. But there's a lot of downtown where you're
waiting for various hammers to drop.
And it's surprisingly funny. There's a lot of laugh lines and some funny action. There's a great part where you see a scene from one angle and
it's quick and action-y. Then, you see it from another and it looks so comical.
The cast is great. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is good, as he usually is and since he's back together with director Rian Johnson (they did the incredible
movie "Brick" together) I knew I wasn't going to be disappointed. Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt hit it all perfectly. There were some parts that
surprised me. I didn't know Jeff Daniels was going to be in it, but I'm glad he was. And Garret Dillahunt pops up (he's Burt on Raising Hope).
So, yeah, this is a great movie. I highly recommend it.
