Looper--an original future with some old fashioned values
It all starts with a solid story and Rian Johnson's Looper has a tight plot for sure. Joseph-Gordon Levitt is well cast as a young Bruce Willis. If Looper was just a sci-fi movie, then it would rate 2.5-3 stars for a unique view of the world in 2044. However, with the introduction of Emily Blunt as the mother of a scarily tele-kinetic little boy who could change the world someday, for better or for worse, Looper becomes a powerful movie that still speaks about values in a society highly needing them. A great movie has a strong plot, cinematography, acting, special effects, action...Looper is all this and more. After nearly two hours, when the movie ended, not a person in this packed house moved for at least a minute, as they reflected on the message at the end.
