4.0 out of 5 stars Violent, oddly paced but very good 13 Mar 2013
By Mr. R. D. Turner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another twelve monkeys? 25 May 2013
By Gareth Simon TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This appears to be a mix of art house and violent action films, a genre which Bruce Willis seems to inhabit comfortably. It is certainly a time travel story, but also a story of character-development, driven by the experiences of both the present (though a slightly in the future dystopian present) and (further in the) future selves of the main character, who meet in the present as part of a cross-time Murder Incorporated operation that goes wrong. Criminal organisations in the far future are sending victims back to the present to be disposed of, having sent an organiser back to set up the organisation in the first place. The assassins – one of whom is our lead character in the present – eventually retire after ‘closing the loop’ by killing their future selves to remove any witnesses to the operation, and get 30 years of retirement funded by their assassination fees. Bruce Willis is the future self of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and has reformed his ways thanks to the love of a good woman he met in his future, and when his time comes to be sent back, overcomes his captors, who have killed his wife, but travels back anyway to try and change the future by killing the man who is organising the killings while he is still a child in the present, having discovered some clues to his identity. He outwits his present self and escapes into the unnamed big city. It has already been established earlier in the film that this is a bad thing, and the criminals know how to track down the escapee by torturing the present-day version of himself, with the injuries transferring to the future self, along with scars spelling out messages.

4.0 out of 5 stars A smart, enjoyable time travel movie 21 Mar 2014
By Phil H
Format:Blu-ray
Looper is the third film from director Rian Johnson and like his previous two movies, Brick, and Brothers Bloom, this one stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt. While Johnson's past movies were low budget and pretty indie in their sensibilities Gordon-Levitt's post-Inception increased star status and the inclusion of old blockbuster hand Bruce Willis allowed for greater budget and scale here.

Set in the year 2044, Looper introduces a number of key concepts via a film noirish style voiceover by Joe (Gordon-Levitt). We're told that 30 years from that point time travel will have been invented and banned, however criminals have used it to find a way to dispose of bodies. They send their targets back in time, bound and hooded, to where a specialized assassin known as a looper, guns them down. The name looper comes from the fact that at some point each one will have to shoot their own future self (known as "closing the loop") and is retired at that point to enjoy the rest of their lives. We also find out that roughly ten percent of the population has very limited telekinetic abilities. It all goes a bit wrong for Joe when his future self (Willis) arrives unbound and with no hood and proceeds to escape setting the two at odds.

The noir elements don't end with the voiceover - despite being set in the future and wearing its scifi elements proudly, Looper has the feel of a society Humphrey Bogart would have been familiar with. Grim and grimy streets, wandering vagrants, a nightclub/brothel that's popular with the criminal set, and a depressed, dustbowl feel to the areas outside the city make for an old fashioned sort of scifi. Its also an old fashioned sort of scifi in that Looper is smart and unafraid to be smart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment 11 Oct 2012
By J. Potter TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
With a story centred around time travel and hitmen, a cast headed by Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and very strong support from the likes of Emily Blunt, Looper has been getting a lot of press. Most of it, I thought, was very justified.

In the future, crime syndicates are so big they own the very best technologies, including time travel. When they want someone disappeared they literally do that, sending them back in time to be executed by a Looper - a contract hitman who asks no questions and takes payment in the gold and silver strapped to his victim. Joe is one such Looper, and then the hit that appears before him, is himself from the future, and he's on a mission.

From start to finish Looper enthralls. Notably for a film about time travel it doesn't dally with any of the dogma that has weighed down other movies. Looper pays time travel its due respect and gets on with the story. It looks very well made but doesn't appear to be big budget, with scant glimpses of future cityscapes. Rather it focuses on the characters and story, giving us two polished performances from Willis and Gordon-Levitt, with a stand-out from Emily Blunt that anchors the other two. My overriding sense throughout was of a captivating and visually compelling story as we first figured what the old Joe's mission was and then weighed its worth. It has been one of the most difficult stories for me to summarise because so much of what it's about is wrapped around the end.

Unfortunately the end, despite it's impact, gave up on the chance to resonate beyond the credits. Instead it moralised about our future being dependent on what we do now, with a slight of hand thrown in that invoked M. Night Shyamalan. I have no problem with moralising at all, if it fits the story.
