Time travel gets clever twists in writer-director Rian Johnson's ("Brick") enjoyable fantasy-adventure, as Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis play the younger and older incarnations of the same futuristic character, a professional killer. His older self is sent back several decades, where his younger version is meant to kill him and "close the loop" ... but things don't go quite that smoothly.
Jeff Daniels ("The Newsroom") nearly steals the show as the tale's chief villain in a cast that also includes Emily Blunt, Piper Perabo, Paul Dano and Noah Segan. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by Johnson, Gordon-Levitt and Blunt; deleted scenes; animated trailer. *** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
