Looper is a really good sci-fi/action thriller. Although the second half of the film tapers off towards the end, the film is held together by a solid concept, great direction, and good performances, even if some things are left unanswered.

As far as "sci-fi" films go, In todays age they are getting better. Not confusing or so unbelieveable its hard to watch. It's exciting. Pause it when I get up, so I don't miss a thing proves to me that it was a worthy new kind of sci-fi film. Levitt's makeup, interesting. Storyline, fun. Action, memorable. That's important.

Intelligent Time Travel Film

Looper: 4.5/5
Short Synopsis: A hit man who kills people from the future encounters the future version of himself.

This movie is excellent in my opinion. Where to start is the question. Well for one the acting. Joseph Gordon Levitt is especially sharp playing a young Bruce Willis. He has that bad ass hit man vibe that Willis is known so well for. I believe that Willis and Levitt's ability to successfully mirror each other is a huge hit or miss shot that Johnson took with the casting and it paid off. That's one of the driving forces behind the movie. The acting that was most impressive to me was that of the little boy. The dialogue and scene with him and the math was amazingly done. It sent shivers down my spine and made me feel for Emily Blunt like I was right there. If he wasn't as ...

"Looper" by Yojimbo

In a future where time travel has been invented and outlawed, it is used solely by a criminal organisation who use it to "disappear" undesirables into the past where they are disposed of by hired killers called "loopers". I was very much looking forward to Rian Johnson's foray into science fiction, being a big fan of his two previous films both of which were similar genre homages. Sci fi is a rather more difficult nut to crack however, as most of the concepts it employs can be traced back to a few key examples. In this case, the comparisons to The Terminator in particular, Twelve Monkeys and Blade Runner are obvious making Looper feel a little too referential in way that Brick and The Brothers Bloom avoided. It could also be argued that its monicker could just as easily refer to the many ...

Energetic theme, with believable characters

Rian Johnson with the haunting score of his brother Nathan, brings a sci-fi film that might be slightly down the level, may be due to the budget. Looper is a different film that sticks mainly upon few characters both in past and future. This is not like cloud atlas connecting the past and present, but it is a different idea of time travel, to bring the past and future in the same frame. I like the way some scenes are presented with both the past and future seems likely same. Johnson ensures that narrative is tight enough to make audience understand the concept of loopers. The viewers get clear idea of the various terms in the film, and later on will be used for understanding the filmís plot. Nothing deep or really remarkable is in Looper. I donít understand the point that this film is giv...

I was lucky enough to catch a pre-release screening on this yesterday and I have to say that fans of action/sci-fi should be in for a treat. While I'm not going to say it's perfect (time-travel films rarely are - too much to think about) - I think they captured the near-future pretty accurately (if a bit depressing to think about) and the whole mob-of-the-future time-travel hits was a nice use of said technology.

Full review up tomorrow!
