This mind-bending gem was one of our faves of 2012 and was satisfying on just about every level. The ending was truly extraordinary because it redeemed what could have been viewed as an unlikable protagonist (played by both Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon Levitt simultaneously) by having him commit an act of utter selflessness. Up until that key moment the film had left us breathless with it’s unrelentingly bad-ass action scenes, but suddenly we found ourselves overcome with unexpected emotion.
