Bookmark and Share

I've just watched 'LOOPER'.  :D

Directed By  Rian Johnson

Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt

In the year 2042, a man working for a group of killers called "Loopers" (they work for the mob and kill people who are sent blindfolded back in time from the year 2072 by their bosses) recognizes a victim as himself. He hesitates resulting in the escape of his older self.


A good movie with a interesting theme/concept.

If you're looking for a good sci-fi action flick, look no further. Well, at the sight of the movie's idea of travelling time & telekinesis, you might think that Looper might be a confusing movie that might confused your mind, no, well, not exactly, not if you ponder too much about the physics & technicality of the alteration of the timeline. With just keen listening & comprehension, you will understand the story well.

The story takes place in the year 2042. It revolves around Joe, a looper. A looper is a group of assassins who worked for the mob & kill people who are sent back blindfolded into the past from the year 2072 by the bosses. When Joe's friend; Seth did not close his 'loop' by kiiling his older self, things get awry. Joe soon discovered he too have to face the same fate to close his 'loop' when a victim who is sent back is his older self, he hesitates which results in the escape of his older self. Which then leads to a numerous chain of events.

Good acting by the main casts.

Interesting concept. With the background of near-future, Looper serves really well with story.
Plot-wise, although, I expected more from its ending, overall, it was quite a well constructed plot.
Acting. With Joseph Gordon-Levitt's acting in many films such as Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, Premium Rush & others, his acting in Looper serves well as he successfully potrayed Bruce Willis' mannerisms very well. Like wise with Bruce Willis. 
Visually, with good graphics and a different perspective of the near future, the movie shows a more plausible future with divided/selfish societies. 

All in all, Looper is a good & interesting movie which I highly recommend to watch. (:

Yes, I enjoyed it very much. Totally agree with you, once I think too much it becomes complicated as if the whole thing will loop again and again :)
