Go see it before you get spoiled
I thoroughly enjoyed Looper. I am a fan of time travel, sci-fi, and action movies, so I had no reason to pass this one up. The marketing campaign, thankfully, has chosen to give you no more information than you get in the first 10-15 minutes of the movie, which is a relief. It is amazing. Jarring, beautiful, and one that'll keep you thinking long after the credits roll. It uses time travel in a way that most time travel movies do not. Things are fluid, and time can be altered, just beware what you change.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt does a SUPERB job embodying a young Bruce Willis. His face prosthetics will only seem distracting for a second, but you will soon become engrossed with the world of the film. It worked for me, especially after seeing both old and young Joe side by side. The similarities to Bruce Willis are amazing, and Gordon Levitt has Willis's facial peculiarities down pat. It's great to watch.
