Looper 
Gordon-Levitt is Good, Willis is Not
2.5/4 stars

I liked this movie to some extent. It is not a good movie but very close. Gordon-Levitt is going to continue to be a strong actor in the next 10 years and this movie helps his action cause. Bruce Willis, however, is over the hill and has nothing left. All of his good acting is gone and we are left with a somber old man.

Story: I have seen this story before when it was called Time Cop. I am not saying this movie is not better than Time Cop but still the plot is very similar. However, this movie is told much better. Rian Johnson does a good job of throwing some uniqueness into the movie. There are also a few twists to the show but some of it is cliche. The ending is kind of a turd.

Music: I saw a featurette online that gave me great hope for the musical score. It was OK but nothing gave packed a punch emotionally to me.

Cinematography: Some of the scenes were shot very well with long tracking shots and shots that panned through the scene slowly (not slow mo) to give the audience a feeling that we were in the movie.

Overall I can't recommend you watch this movie in the theater. The high critical score is given to this movie because most every other movie out there sucks and this one does not. Sci Fi/Action fans should check it out but don't get your hopes up.
