"Looper" weaves between past and present in a way that gives Johnson and his actors opportunities to create a surprisingly involving narrative.
I seem to agree with Roger about 85% of the time so this is a must see!

Or you can just have faith in the director.

I had faith in Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch and felt utterly disappointed (and annoyed). I don't know who the director is, but truth be told, I don't expect too much artistry from the action thriller called "Looper". Ebert's 3.5 rating is most likely uninspired other than by the dazzlingness of the moment.

Oh, I would. Rian Johnson's unique style turned a halfway normal high school murder movie (those exist) and turned it into film noir, more so than even Veronica Mars... This was a fantastic film, Brick, which I would recommend. And what do you mean by 'dazzlingness of the moment?'

If the film were called "Dave Mart's Super Punch-Out" would you bequeath it worthy of your regal attentions? Or was your cinema license revoked after you went into Sucker Punch expecting a good movie

Zack Snyder's really hit or miss with his movies. Not what I would call a top-tier director the likes of a Nolan, Johnson, or Refn.

The main problem I have with Ebert reviews is he can go into a lot of plot detail. I won't read them unless I've seen the film. This review is a bit revealing.

I think I'm taking crazy pills. I saw this on a whim last night and thought it was pretty dumb. And I really liked Brick and even found the brothers bloom entertaining. But I thought this one was sloppy and not thought provoking at all. The difference in morals between young joe and old joe really bugged me. I was expecting to get on rotten tomatoes and see like a 50% only to find unanimous acclaim. If you see the movie let me know what you think. I wanna know what i missed
