MIND BENDING TIME TRAVEL & COOL PROSTHETICS
A thought-provoking film where lust for survival takes the characters to disturbing places, but compassion and change from within leads them to hope... Naomi Rossdeutscher
LOOPER is a smart sci-fi thriller, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis, who play the same man but one lives in 2044 and one exists 30 years later.
Writer/director Rian Johnson's concept is clever and the film delivers well on that concept. The structure is complex, but skilful script writing and editing makes grasping the story easy, even with the implications of time travel. The unpredictable script doesn't pull any punches and the film's execution is stylish.
