if you utilize time travel in any film, you're essentially holding a hole puncher directly at your movie. looper, proves this universal law by manipulating time travel for it's hollywood purpose and in the process creates a lot of plotholes, and i mean A LOT. it will alienate you throughout.
the first half of the movie is well-done cyberpunk, whilst the second half is an awkward love affair on a farm as we wait for bruce willis to show up.
looking back on it, i wish it took itself in a few different directions, like:
NOT TAKING PLACE ON A FUCKING FARM FOR AN HOUR.
sorry, but it just completely belies the stylish sci-fi buildup at the start. we're introduced to this intriguing new world in a distant future with seedy underbellies and fabricated lore, so why not keep it going... why farm? FARM?!?!? 6/10
I wonder how well Bruce Willis would do giving a Joseph-Gordon Levitt impression...
Refreshing to see something great that's not a remake, sequel or prequel.
