C.J.'s Review of Looper
Props to the filmmakers for the fun premise, nifty cinematography, the steady stream of surprises and reveals, and actors who find humanity in all the cracked-out sci-fi trickery. The plotting is tight, even if the time-bendy stuff won't be winning any logic awards. The lamest thing about the whole movie is probably the Older Joe's unswerving dedication to his wife as a convenient plot point. She's a character we don't get to meet but is his motivation for making dark choices. All we know about her is she's cute and Asian and she "saved" him. Whatever, Hollywood.
