First slide

Vengeance story set in the near and distant future, involving a group of assassins, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who has to give chase when his next victim is his future self, played by Bruce Willis. Director-writer Rian Johnson has produced a mix of science fiction and old-time Western that looks to have been concocted by a couple of 13-year-old boys with little consideration of logic but an endless supply of "What if this happened?" twists.

Watch out for: Pervasive gun violence, including the murder of a child, two implied sexual situations, brief upper female nudity, fleeting rough, crude and profane language.

Rated: The Catholic News Service classification is L - limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating R - restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
