Fresh concept, I really enjoyed Joseph Gordon-Levitt's performance in this film, he just caught my attention. Little Pierce Gagnon "The Rainmaker" was fantastically brilliantly sweet, with sudden tones of creepiness. He makes the viewer cherish him while on his best behavior, and then recoil at his--challenging moments. Some kids are just born stars. I didn't care for the cheap "love scenes" because it took away from the movie, and it keeps younger audiences from experiencing the original ideas that the movie has to offer, as well as the consequences brought on by the actions of "Joe" and esp. "Old Joe."

One of the best extra features I've seen too, including the "hidden short".

A bit predictable at times, but all in all not a bad way to kill a few hours. Not Bruce Willis's best work, but hot his worst either.

An intriguing film about the illegal time travel trade. Its only error is that it spent too much time dwelling on the set-up before getting the story started. A suspenseful thriller, I found it immensely satisfying. I highly recommend LOOPER.

An OK time travel movie. Confusing at times and major holes in the story line. A very interesting ending though.

"Bham 2013" Enjoyable, stylish sci movie w/ major plot holes but both leads entertain and the movie inspired conversation afterward.

Bad ending... Utter waste of time. Only watch it until the part where Levitt and Willis meet in the cafe together. Then stop the film. Trust me on this.

Interesting premises but I felt something (I don't know what,) wasn't fully developed. This film would be on my third tier recommendation list.

LOVED this movie. In a time when movies are either just made from books (but are never as good) or remakes of other movies, this story line felt totally original. All actors involved were perfect.

Older Joe: I don't want to talk about time travel because if we start talking about it then we're going to be here all day talking about it, making diagrams with straws.

Joe: "...Then I saw it. I saw a mom who would die for her son... A man who would kill for his wife... A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it."
