My husband was the one who thought I would like the moviet because I'm in love with Bruce Willis(among other male actors), and I really enjoyed it. My husband loved it because of the action. And it did have plenty of that..
I really liked everything about tis movie. The acting and directing was good but the special effects were really great.
My beleif is that this movie is not for younger children, but age 13+ is ok to see this movie, with a parent. I say this because as certain scences are come up, they can ask questiion regarding it. I would want my granchild to ask me so that he/she could get the correct prespective regarding the scene.
Over all, I really enjoyed this movie and suggest that it be seen by parents and older childrens. I truly believe it would be enjoyed by this age group.

Truly one of the biggest messes of a movie that I've ever been exposed to. I feel so sorry for Bruce Willis... How he got tied up in this disaster just makes no sense... I can sum up the movie in a few words...
Joseph Gordon-Levitt grabs a weapon... puts liquid drugs in his eyes to get high (very similar to being in a K Hole) and stands before a white tarp... a person appears out of nowhere and he shoots a big hole in them... He collects silver and gold bars and plans to go to France but ends up in Asia... Just replay that scenario about 30 times.. there is your movie.

It was ok. Glad I did not spend the dough to see it in the theater. The bit werid was I couldn't figure out what the past dates were through the whole film. Was it 1939??? Or 2044/2074 as the movie states? No disrespect, but if it was supposed to reflect 2044 where were the technology, culture, costumes? Was that altered too? No cell phones, hardly any vechiles? Weird. No disrespect but the director should not ever try to persue any type of career in the Si-Fi releam of things in any real sense of manner, unless he has some type of crew to back him up.
And I was waiting to see the results of the demise of one's own ancestors, how can you rid your parent/grandparent or whatever without dimissing oneself? Was there a loop I missed, where they got to loop back? Some type of Quatum link that got around that fact?
Then the kid seemed to be like possesed and it almost seemed like some type of horror movie at that point. Really, pick one type of genre and stay with it.

This movie starts slow but picks up with an intriguing plot. This is not an action filled sci-fi movie but an intelligent one. What makes this a really good movie is even after it's over you'll find yourself still talking about it and wanting to actually be in the world of Looper... It's a very good movie.

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.
