Best Time Travel Science Fiction Movie in Years

By joeexplorer

Looper is well acted with a great script. Time travel conundrums abound but they are written intelligently with a consistent internal logic to the screen writer's vision of time travel. Looper is one of the best time travel movies since the 12 Monkeys. The only minus is that it's vision of the future seems very low budget. Not much seems to have changed between 2012 and 2044 in this movie except there is much more poverty. But the movie is strong enough to overcome that flaw.

Really EXCELLENT movie. Makes your head hurt trying to sort out time travel! Well worth the time and money! I really would like to see it again, which would help to explain a few things. Very enjoyable. My husband and I had a great discussion/argument on the way home. GO SEE IT!

Unbelievably bad

This movie was bad from the beginning to the end. It was the first time that I left my seat to make a phone call during a movie. It was so ridiculous, that there was laughter in the theater even though there were no comic scenes

This is one of the best movies, certainly the best action movies, my wife and I have seen seen this year! It wasn't the typical action movie. Kept you guessing and did a good job of keeping the viewer in the loop. Very good!

Another Stunner From Rian Johnson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt!

This was a more violent movie than I had expected, but I am not sure why, given the gritty nature of writer/director Rian Johnson and lead actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt's last outing together, "Brick", Johnson's 2005 writing and directorial debut. A film noir stunner, that movie played like the grittiest Bogart movie you'd ever seen, only, this one was set in high school. Oh, and the part of Bogart was played by Gordon-Levitt, as if he was born to play the part. I am pretty sure that the tension I felt and the starkness of some of the violence was more about the art of exclusion rather than inclusion. I think that it is a testimony to the way the writer/director Rian Johnson chose his effects shots and gruesome details so carefully, while allowing the rest of the movie to have such a grounded-in-reality feel. In this movie, the future isn't so altogether different than our own time. As in Brick, you just have no idea where this story could take you, but you just have to find out!
