I had a feeling this movie was going to be good... but hot damn! To be original in this era or remakes is a statement unto itself, but these guys raised the bar to a whole new level. Story is all there and then some. Every actor was solid and fully realized. The action was smart and the imagery interesting the whole way through. I found myself actually grinning like a kid wiho wakes up to find the tooth fairy gave you a twenty dollar bill instead of a boring old george washington Instant classic and easily one of the best science fiction flicks of all time.

Starts off SLOW, then picks up in the middle, then ends pretty predictably. Of course with Bruce Willis in it, any movie is worth the popcorn ;-)

Absolutely amazing. One of the best sci-fi movies in years. Comparable to Blade Runner in its level of world-building, tension, suspense and the moral and ethical questions it poses for the viewer. Could not recommend it highly enough.

I reviewed this film as a go; but it was close to a so/so. I loved the concept and storyline. However, the writing was a little weak as far as character development and letting the film move along smoothly. I don't mind flashbacks or dream sequences; but they need to be explained much better in this film. The acting is fine and so is the plot. I did see two major flaws in this one; but I will leave that up to you to see or not. It's still entertaining and worth the price of admission, but don't expect a masterpiece.

I was extremely excited to see this movie. It isn't a re-make, it has a great plot, with little twists creating a very entertaining film. I was disappointed that my local theater only had one screen and four showings of Looper on the opening day, I think the film, director, and audience should have more access to such a great movie. Many people probably thought the twists ruined the movie, but I think it makes the movie unique to other movies being produced today. It was a great ride and I will be seeing it again soon.
