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.

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.

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.

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.

A fresh, intelligent and action-packed addition to the time-travel anthology.

Not quite the time travel story science fiction fans were hoping for, alas.
January 4, 2013
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.
