    Lacing tremendously exciting action with touching gravity, Looper hits you like a shot in the heart. show more

    The casting is carefully considered, as well, from Willis, whose Old Joe is even more dangerous than Young Joe, to Emily Blunt, who goes American this time and plays a young mother with a winning warmth and vulnerability. show more

    When so much of what Hollywood churns out is almost instantly forgettable, it says a lot about a film when viewers want to take time to argue, ponder and puzzle over it. show more

    So what's left for the audience to hook into? Only pounding action, elegant style, steady-state suspense, marvelous acting and, despite that droll pooh-poohing every now and then, haunting explorations of youth, age and personal destiny. It's a lot to claim for a sci-fi thriller, but I was blown away by Rian Johnson's Looper. show more

    Late in Looper, when a highly telekinetic kid starts levitating things, it really does look like Christopher Nolan had wandered onto the set and taken over. show more

    Gordon-Levitt is flinty, and Willis, on his A-game, is fiery. Together, they take us on a helluva trip. show more

    Their physical disparity notwithstanding, Gordon-Levitt and Willis both come across strongly, while Blunt effectively reveals Sara's tough and vulnerable sides. show more

    Looper, a cocky sci-fi tale with more brass than substance, is rife with these "Say what?" moments. show more

    Looper may not have the bell-ringing resonance of Chris Marker's "La Jetée," one of its touchstones, but it's a jaunty match-up of genre and character drama that's far smarter and more finely wrought than almost anything else in the multiplexes. show more

    Looper is a tremendous motion picture experience. Not merely a "very good" one, but a great one. show more

    Such a disappointment! I am a big Bruce Willis fan.... but this was one of his worst! and the plot was so confusing and truly not worth the 118 minutes!

    This was a good movie in theory, but it could have been better. The plot was very slow developing, so it took patience to wade thru all the unanswered questions until the end where everything came together. It was good, but I was slightly disapointed from what I expected.

    Surprised I really enjoyed this. The time travel science in the movie kept and I bought it completely as an overarching theme with good plot points. Just well made in general

    Loved it. Every minute of it. I don\'t understand the knee-jerk hatred for the film by time-travel experts. (Right?). I bought the whole thing, loved that it focused so much on relationship, and thought the acting was top notch from top to bottom. Go see it. Pleased it\'s doing so well. Look forward to Rian\'s next film.
