    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

    Refreshing to see something great that's not a remake, sequel or prequel. 6 years 2 months ago

    A solid, somewhat interesting, somewhat gory action-fest that lives up to its premise and offers a fun 2 hours of mind-stretching time travel possibilities. Still feels like it's lacking just a little something, but the acting, FX and makeup and general storytelling are quite solid. It does feel slightly long and like it slightly cheats in its ending, but it's a solid film that should be sought out and enjoyed by sci-fi fans.
