3.0 out of 5 stars House of cards 8 Jan 2014
By P. G. Harris TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Looper is a rather odd, uneven movie. It is as if the writer/director had a reasonable idea for a time travel tale, and a half formed idea for a telekinesis film, and decided to shove them together.

The basic concept is that Joe, played by Joseph Gordon Leavitt has been recruited by a mafia boss sent backwards in time by 30 years from 2074 to carry out hits on undesirables, also sent back from the future, where it is seemingly impossible to dispose of the bodies. Eventually, as time travel itself is illegal, the hit-men are required to dispose of their older selves, receiving a pay off in the process which will allow them to live in comfort for the next 30 years. The second element of the story is hinted at by the fact that a proportion of the population is mildly telekinetic.
Joe's troubles begin when he fails to kill his older self, played by Bruce Willis.

The movie falls into three acts, firstly establishing the scenario of young Joe's life, secondly, rapidly telling the thirty year story of how he becomes Bruce Willis, and thirdly the event's after Old Joe's return, which also involve single mother, Emily Blunt, and her young son.

The 2044 in which the film is set is not one in which there has been a great deal of progress, other than the invention of levitating motorbikes. If anything it has a retro-feel reminiscent of Terry Gilliam's Brazil.

It is all well played and Gordon-Leavitt and Willis are convincing in establishing younger and older selves with similar mannerisms.

Set in the near future Looper is the story of Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a man with a gun, paid in silver bars to shoot dead those people sent back in time for assassination by a powerful criminal organisation. This is possible because although time travel has not been invented in Joe’s time (let’s call him Joe1, you’ll see why later) it has been invented about thirty years in his future and then quickly banned, but the criminal organisation still uses a time machine illegally to send people back to be killed by ‘loopers’… They are so called because when their employment is terminated their future selfs are sent back in time to be killed by them – thus tying up loose ends and closing the loop. With me so far? Good, because it is as simple as that until future Joe (Joe2) (Bruce Willis) avoids getting shot after being sent back for assasination by Joe1 and then decides to try and find and kill the ten year old version of the man who will become the evil head of the criminal organisation called the Rainmaker. This is because Joe2 holds the Rainmaker responsible for his wife’s death.

This plot point can be compared to Terminator 2 where the T2000 is sent back to kill John Connor as an angsty teenager, although Joe2 initially appears to be a good guy and the Rainmaker a bad guy. I say initially because it soon becomes apparant that Joe2 is the villain of the piece and that the 10yr old boy is an innocent. Interestingly where Joe1 starts off as a bit of a douchbag and then comes good, the opposite could be said of Joe2; a clean version of Joe1 who has changed his life for the better and then having been forced back into a world he left behind he descends into the role of a cold hearted child killer in his attempt to change the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Familiar yet refreshing Sci-fi 28 Jan 2013
By Jules TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Set in the year 2044, we follow Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt-50/50) who is a Looper, a hitman for a crime syndicate, whom in 2074 with the invention & outlawed time travel, send people that they want whacked & disposed of without trace back 30 years. Every so often a Looper is retired when his future self is sent back for whacking, along with retirement money for the younger self. But as a new crime lord, the Rainmaker, in that future comes to power, these retirements increase & it's inevitable then, that Joe is faced with his older self (Bruce Willis), who escapes & is determined to find & kill this Rainmaker so his own future can be secured.

Overall Looper is a good film that takes a familiar concept & turns it into something that feels different & fresh. It's engaging story entertains with a mixture of action, suspense, romance & tragedy. And it manages to do all this even when being on a low budget compared to mainstream Hollywood movies, the futuristic setting is quite laid back with more of a variation on modern day America rather then epic & expensive scale back drop effects. The main highlights of the futuristic elements were a cool hovering motorbike, big Hellboy style guns, economy time travel & a couple of well done big cinematic scenes that not doubt cost most of the budget.

The acting overall was very good, Joseph Gordon-Levitt pleasantly surprised me as the drug addicted hitman with a caring side. He does look a little odd in some shots to me, perhaps he is made to look more like Willis(?). The old guard in Bruce Willis (
