Format: Blu-ray
This film is rated 15 - which is amazing to me. There is a fair bit of violence and an implied torture scene is chilling. There is also bad language from the off and simulated drug taking. So anyone with young teenage kids - please be aware!

That said it is a very decent film. The premise is that time travel has been invented but banned. The only people using it are criminals and they use it selectively to get rid of people. The Looper in the title is a person who carries out an execution when the person is sent back from the future. The science fiction is reasonably well thought out and used well but it serves as a backdrop to a human story.

This film works because we see the protagonist go on a journey and end up changed by the result. The mid section of the film drags a bit but the end scene works very well and I am glad I saw it.

I saw the Blue Ray edition which had good sound and very clear visuals, especially in the outdoor scenes.

Seriously worth watching. I hadn't bothered with it for quite some time as the premise had seemed entirely boring and unoriginal, but the film has a lot more to it that the adverts let on. Bruce Willis is very good at playing the kind of role he usually doesn't play, which is a really welcome change from the stereotypical action-hero kind of guy he usually plays. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot of violence in this film, but the fact that such (sometimes brutal) violence is actually downplayed and presented in a matter-of-fact way actually makes it a much sharper film, rather than the usual action flicks which depend entirely on slow-mo death shots and closeups of main characters wrestling with their inner turmoil about "oh no what have I done etc etc". Nope. None of that here. Sometimes you don't even get to see how someone died - it's none of your business, they're dead, why are you still standing there, come on, try to keep up. Just classy, stylish, fast paced fun which will leave you suprised at just how good this film turned out to be. Just don't over-think the time travel paradoxes, the film actually makes a point of telling you to stop thinking about it and just enjoy the ride.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By P. G. Harris TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 Jan 2014
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.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 May 2013
Format: DVD
The movie takes on some unique aspects. Perhaps the best way to describe the film is that it reminded me of "Terminator" without cyborgs. This is a film that deals with time travel. It addresses some of the paradoxes of time travel, but ignores others. In the near future, time travel is possible and outlawed. As the old saying goes, "If time travel is outlawed, then only outlaws will time travel." Weirdly the outlaws use time travel to dispose of bodies. People are transported to the past where they are shot/killed/ and disposed of by people called Loopers who are well paid in silver.

Something happens to the system as Loopers are rounded up and sent back to be killed by their younger selves. To add to the weird, there suddenly appears mutant humans who have mild amounts of "TK" or telekinesis powers.

I liked the movie as it was a fresh approach to the use of time travel. Decent script. Decent acting. Good ending.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, no real sex, nudity (Piper Perabo)

Format: DVD
The idea of being able to change the future by altering events in the past is not a new one and is difficult to portray without the concept of multiple parallel universes and even more difficult to make believable but this film comes pretty close. Most of the action takes place in 2044 where life is not too different from today , apart from levitating motorbikes , and the act of solving difficulties in the future takes place by sending miscreants back from the future to dispose of them in the past - all very good until that miscreant turns out to be your future self. The beginning and end of the film is very good but the middle is a bit unnecessary and laboured but all in all a good effort.
