    Drezzy85 - The movie's damn fun and knows how to mask itself as being much deeper than it actually is. Everybody is great in their roles, the Cillian Murphy/Pete Postlethwait scenes are heart-wrenching, both Tom Hardy and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are fucking BOSS in it, Michael Caine is his usual awesome self, and Leonardo DiCaprio continues to prove why he fully deserves to maintain a career post-heartthrob years.

    Jeremy M80 - It was just so...different. I feel like originality is super rare when it comes to movies these days, and this one actually kept me guesting from start to finish.

    Jester Smiles50 - I saw it after I saw all the hype, This movie was just not that interesting. To me, it felt like it was trying really hard to be smart, and it was just...unnecessary. I thought the South Park parody was more complicated then this film.
