Claudia Connell
Daily Mail [UK]

The first half of writer/director Rian Johnson's film is gripping, but by the second half it's all become unbelievably confused and disjointed.

The dystopian setting... makes for some bold cultural commentary, but as usual with Johnson, the engaging ideas feel like affectations rather than products of a fully developed sensibility.

The second Rian Johnson movie in a row (following The Brothers Bloom) that looks great but meanders while doing it.

Kind of a reverse-"Terminator" without any of James Cameron's wit (or wisdom),

Intriguing conversation material but curiously cold and unsatisfying as drama.

Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), the loopy looper, has to time travel into another time to kill himself (Bruce Willis) so that he doesn't make bad movies. No, that's not it. So he can avoid Demi Moore. No. Oh, forget it.

It's a thriller with fantasy elements and if you disregard (or don't care about) the internal confusion of its world, you may find it works for you

Yet another rehash of the first "Terminator" film, revisiting the time travel genre without bringing a whole lot new to the table.

[VIDEO ESSAY] As time-travel suspense thrillers go "Looper" is a pinch better than mediocre.

The transgression of internal logic suspends a faithfully observant viewer's disbelief more than Mr. Gordon-Levitt's glued on eyebrows.

Not quite the time travel story science fiction fans were hoping for, alas.

Ingenious with a fine performance by Emily Blunt, but far too much cold-blooded violence.

While Gordon-Levitt and Willis have a blast with the space-time issues and some funny dialogue, the movie loses steam after a solid start.

...a muddled echo of several other films where the filmmakers treated their ideas as something more than a gimmick.

I found myself dreaming of the days when Willis would take a rest from Die Hard-ing to do character cameos of unexpected depth and pathos: Pulp Fiction, Nobody's Fool, and a few others. Now he clings to stoic longevity, and shoots people.

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

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

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.
