Great movie though it doesn't always make sense which is why you have to see it AGAIN. The best thing out there this year. Bruce Willis is superb. The story is kinetic. Highly recommended.

Either they are saving half the story for the sequel, or the writers on this storyline missed some interesting twists that would have made this movie actually interesting.

This was a waste of two hours of my life that i can NEVER get back. I will never understand why people think this crap was so good . Wait for cable on this one not even Blu-Ray worthy .

Context: The Lord of the Rings and the Matrix Trilogy are some of my favorite movies.
This movie is okay. The acting is good. The story plot is a bit underdeveloped. It strikes me as a fairly low budget (by Hollywood standards) film, that is not heavy on the special affects, but the acting and the premise in general carries the film. It could have been much better with a little more development of the plot; in particular what was happening in the future.
I'd probably recommend waiting for the movie to come out on HBO or Showtime, rather than spending the money to watch it. It's borderline in that respect.

I really wanted to enjoy Looper, but found myself disappointed. It was overly graphic and violent (including extremely creepy violence toward children), but that wasn't my main complaint. I can't say too much without going into spoilers, but I thought the ending was unnecessary given the way time travel and memory is explained throughout the rest of the movie. That was probably the largest letdown. I was also hoping and thinking that there would be more cooperation between the olde and younger looper given that they were the same person, but they didn't get too deep into that relationship.
Overall, it's a very interesting concept, but it didn't meet my expectations. Overall, I give it a "meh".
