Very good movie. Plot actually made sense unlike many time travel movies. Acting was above par. It is worth worth going to see in the theater as apposed to waiting to go see on DVD.

I was very impressed with everything about this movie...except the two scenes of female nudity. (One very brief, and one very long). Unnecessary and gross!
But overall: Great acting, Great filming, Great writing, Great directing...and such a fascinating plot.
Kind of "tough" movie. Some folks find it hard to watch. It is pretty morbid sometimes. And it's very tense.
Blew me away!
Parents: Had alot of foul language (many uses of the "f" word and taking God's name in vain).
2 scenes of topless females. Lots of violence, gore, and tense scenes (many involve a child). A few times it's very obviously implied that a couple sleeps together, but the act is never seen (just aLOT! of kissing/grabbing/waking up next morning/etc).

The story is fine. It is the cold blooded murders that come frequently that repulse and rob the theme of its force. I kept having to skip ahead hoping for better.
Also, do you think a life of crime and iv drugs is sustainable for thirty years? Sorry, but I can't see that the resolution would ever have had a chance to happen.

I was looking forward to this movie for a majority of the year. I have to say, this didn't disappoint. I absolutely loved this movie.

"Time travel hasn't been invented yet. Used only in secret by the largest criminal organizations." The film is a disarray of action sequences and an unchained plot summary that leaves audience members regretfull of the high admission price. Looper includes an all star ensemble of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, and Bruce Willis. But even celebrity status couldn't fill the void of a film that failed to deliver. The film's protraganist is a hitman for hire dealing death blows to criminal entities from the future. Joseph Gordon-Levitt later finds his future self, an aged-battered Bruce Willis who manages to escape impending death. His character later reveals his true intentions are to eliminate a criminal mastermind code named the rainmaker, a sole entity responsible for the untimely death of his wife. The film spirals into an unending rollercoaster of violence, death, and blood-splattering with a few dull moments sprinkled here and there but ultimately a failed genre.
