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".

My father was fond of barking, “Boy, I’ll stomp your nuts!”
Have you ever been kicked in the nuts? I mean right square in the balls. Stars flash in your eyes and you drop like a hot sack of diarrhea.
The point of my incoherent lead is this: I imagine a swift kick to the balls is what time travel is like. At the very least, I know that is what time travel stories are like. Even when done right, the majority inevitably try to pull a fast one on the audience.
Time and time again, not just in stories involving time travel, the story and characters will draw us in, make us love them, and then, inexplicably, the rug is pulled from underneath us for a glass bottom boat **** storm, sans the glass bottom boat.

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.

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.

I was a little skeptical at first when I saw the trailer. After having so many new movies come out that were related to time travel fail, I was expecting the same to happen in this one ,but that wasn't the case.
Looper was filled with a lot of plot twists ,so even if you think you had it all figured out something would happen that would completely make your prediction impossible.
I, myself, am not the biggest fan of action movies ,but was very entertained and deeply moved throughout the entire film.
