The Barman says, “I’m sorry, we don’t serve time travelers here.” Time traveler walks into a bar.
Film #060 of 2013
Director: Rian Johnson Cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt [Joe], Bruce Willis [Old Joe] & Emily Blunt [Sara]
Plot: In 2074, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent 30 years into the past, where a hired gun awaits. Someone like Joe, who one day learns the mob wants to ‘close the loop’ by transporting back Joe’s future self. Source IMDB.com
Hipster Review: Its plot, execution and performances are all multi-dimensional – soliciting post discussion like no other film of 2012…it’s Blade Runner, the Terminator and Firestarter all lumped up into one high impact visionary time warp in which Joseph Gordon-Levitt is simply remarkable. Watched December 5th, 2016.
“I don’t want to talk about time travel because if we start talking about it then we’re going to be here all day talking about it, making diagrams with straws.” Old Joe
- Body bags, assassins, gold bars and a farmhouse
- A cup of coffee and a chat at the diner
Pierce Gagnon as Cid
- The futuristic world of 2044 created by Rian Johnson
- Don’t watch it high
Biggest Surprise: Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s makeup and mannerisms will make you believe he’s a young Bruce Willis.
Biggest Let Down: The only thing I didn’t like was Jeff Daniels as Abe, I like the actor just not in this.
Does the guy get the hot girl in the end? Perhaps in the past when the future arrives.
Worth a Blu-ray purchase? I already bought it in the past, or was it the future?
Similar to: The Terminator , Firestarter .
