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.

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!

This thought-provoking sci-fi thriller draws us into the subtle and fascinating machinations of a future organized crime syndicate. The script is in the literary tradition of sci-fi greats such as Asimov, Clarke, and Heinlein. The time-travel plot device serves the story without feeling gimmicky, while the characters' motivations genuinely pull us along to the unexpected conclusion. Graphic violence.
