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.

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.

The movie was made quite well with the colors and the settings reflecting a semi dystopian present and the plot hinting at a completely unhinged future. I wish that the plot had taken some time to treat the looper society itself in greater detail, as to who they were, why they had been selected, what training had they received and so on.
Joseph Gordon Levitt is a great actor and his back and forth with his future self played by Bruce Willis was brilliant. The action was well choreographed.
All in all, quite well done and definitely worth a watch.
Sci Fi puritans will cry out over the glancing treatment given to the actual time travel science and mechanics, but seeing as how this is only a supporting thread in the story I don't find it to be too much of a buzzkill.

Looper was fun, fast, and clever. If I were to critisize anything at all, it simply would b what the hell were they thinking with JGL's eyebrows and obvious lipstick .I understand they needed to change the nose, etc to get him to resemble a young BW, but cmon....he looked like a weird drag queen in a few scenes.
good sold film. I hope there's a sequel with less lipstick.

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.
