This is the real deal, folks - intelligent, humorous, exciting entertainment that happens to be sci-fi but is by no means limited to that genre's target audience in terms of appeal.

This is a wildly entertaining film that isn't content with science and cinematic tricks. It desires, and achieves, much more.

The ending is both daring and logical, two rarities in modern sci-fi.

Badass Digest

With a heady script, stunning performances and fist-pumping action, LOOPER is the most enjoyable combination of immensely watchable yet poignant, even cerebral.

If it weren't for its gaping plot holes, this could be one of this century's best science fiction features.

Yes, it's a B movie sci-fi thriller, but not many prestige pictures have this much going on underneath the surface.

[Looper] may be the best sci-fi thriller to hit the theaters since 1995's Twelve Monkeys.

That first hour cooks. And the second hour brings Emily Blunt into the story, which is a fine thing for any second half to offer.

Is it derivative? Not really; just a reminder that cinema, like history, is on a continuous loop, forever repeating itself.

If the whole thing leaves you rubbing your temples, just a bit... well, this headache's sort of worth it.

Despite its confusing logic and ornate storyline, Looper still grabs the audience with the raw emotional storyline on the farm and the constant popping back and forth in time. It's a head-scratching ride, but a fun one nonetheless.

Call it the coolest, most complex sci-fi of 2012 and the best movie of its kind since "Inception." Pow! What a ride!

Accessible to a general audience while still having moments that will warm any film geek's heart, this is the kind of genre film that elevates the form.

The movie is morally murky, to put it lightly, and that's a bit refreshing; we're made to think about why we want the protagonists to achieve their goals.

A thought-provoking, heart-pounding take on the applications and ethics of time travel which, oddly enough, doubles up as a lesson in the importance of good parenting.

This is one of those rare genre movies (like the original TERMINATOR) that reminds us that Sci-Fi can be smart. It's much more than just a bunch of special effects and explosions. It's what all movies should aspire to be.
