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!

Boring, too long , same old stuff; call a movie sci-fi, have a little sci-fi idea in it and then just pump it full of shooting and chasing just like all of the other brainless movies.

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.

Really EXCELLENT movie. Makes your head hurt trying to sort out time travel! Well worth the time and money! I really would like to see it again, which would help to explain a few things. Very enjoyable. My husband and I had a great discussion/argument on the way home. GO SEE IT!
