Looper- A Disaster in Progress

"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.

Sleek, Cerebral and Hard Core

I didn't expect to like this movie as much I truly did. Rian Johnson did a stand-up job at making a movie with the level of violence style that Scorsese can attain blended with a sharp sci-fi vibe that Christopher Nolan brought to "Inception." This was an intelligently written with direction as elite as it can get. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis were amazing both separated and together. One of the best films of the year.

This movie drags and drags and drags..... I t was confusing and hard to follow. Not enough interaction between the two main characters. And did I mention that it drags. Its a 2 hr. movie and I felt like I was in there for 8 hrs. what a chore.

Is it possible for a movie to be funny,thrilling and inspirational when it involves TIME TRAVEL

well shockingly YES! These characters and an ingenious storyline mark this film as one of the most intelligent and yet subtle in years. When i heard before going that there was Time Travel I groaned. I already had purchased the tickets. Then as the movie started and the Time Travel element gave way to serious action and a complex plot. I forgot my IS THIS SET IN THE FUTURE IS THIS SCIENCE FICTION bias and watched on. The characters are mesmerizing and the action unrelenting and you are swept up in a narrative that pushes you again and again to the edge of your seat. Great ending. Must Go!
