Loopers are people who wait in certain places for criminals in the future to send back the people that need to be disposed of. It’s dirty business especially when the person who is sent back is you.
This is a great intelligent sci-fi movie. It seems these sorts of movies are few and far between, like diamonds in the rough of unnecessary remakes. It was amazing to see an original idea done really well.
Without giving away too much, all I can really say is this film will surprise you, it’s a complicated tale of life choices and sacrifice. The cast are brilliant especially Joesph Gordon Levitt who really sells that he is a young Bruce Willis, he gets Willis’s mannerisms down perfectly and although he doesn’t look exactly like him you believe it.
Everything was pointing in the right direction and I really couldn’t find anything wrong with Looper. I left the cinema with a feeling not felt very often. It blew me away and is a serious contender for best film of the year. I’m making this a short review because if not I’ll spoil too much writing about this masterpiece all night.
