Looper embraces the paradox that's required for the two-Joes story to even happen, knotting improbability, vengeance and the notion of choice into a taut, sleek, imperfect but intelligent action movie.
February 4, 2019
For all its promise, Looper is a true film of two parts (halves wouldn't be quite accurate in terms of narrative focus) -- with the second, ultimately, a jumbled genre-clash of misfires and missteps.

Looper is solid in performance, action and effect, with some admirable surprises along the way and at the end.

While this latest time-travel movie isn't perfect, it is a thought- provoking, intelligent story with heart.

Films like Looper are the reason spoiler tags were invented. This is a film that demands to be seen cold and discussed later.

Some may try to nitpick the film to death ... but look past the little details and you'll find a film that, as a whole, is both fun and thought provoking.

Looper may not be something Christian moviegoers want to expose themselves to, but it should hearten us to know that young, influential filmmakers like Johnson are wrestling with these questions in such well-done movies.

There isn't one wasted moment or word.

A breath of fresh air as we creep into the heavy fall dramas and awards glitz, Looper will likely not be forgotten as the film that showed up and got the job done.

Great set-up. Awful follow-through.
April 15, 2016
While the film overshoots its landing by a mile, it's a worthwhile science fiction piece with no shortage of interesting ideas.

Rian Johnson is a very clever man, if sometimes a bit too clever for his own good.
July 17, 2013
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.

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.

April 3, 2013
With a heady script, stunning performances and fist-pumping action, LOOPER is the most enjoyable combination of immensely watchable yet poignant, even cerebral.
March 21, 2013
If it weren't for its gaping plot holes, this could be one of this century's best science fiction features.
