Directed & Written By: Rian Johnson
I honestly did not know what to expect from this Film. I had heard about it and yeah it sounded interesting but I was not sure if I was going to see it in Theaters or just rent it at my local Blockbuster. Well...I'm so glad I saw it, really! A few weeks ago, after one of my night classes, a friend and I just drove over to a local Theater and saw it, and a couple hours later, we were just mystified on how good it was!
Now, this story takes place in the future, and basically when the mob wants to get rid of a person, they send them in a time travel thing, and it sends them 30 years into the past, to only get shot by a Looper, when they arrive right on schedule. Now, that's just how the routine goes, and Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) has known the drill for a while, but things get tricky when the person he's supposed to shoot, is his future self (Bruce Willis)...interesting right? Well, after a surprising action at that confrontation, the routine, and things are not the same again, and well you just gotta see what happens then, because, it was just a thrilling ride of action and a whole lot of other stuff!
What really interested me about this film, were the actors; they were just so good! I really like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, I do; he's a great actor, and this film really brought out another type of character that we don't normally see, so that was wonderful. Bruce Willis is the older Joe, and he was really great too, and both of these actors, these characters were just so n-sync. Emily Blunt is in this too, and I really like her; she's a wonderful actress and we don't really see her until hmm I want to say, sorta in the middle of the film, and her character and her character's son brings a whole new thrilling element to the plot, so keep on the look out for that. There is a mild romance here and I think it was written out, acted out just like it was supposed too....
What else to write? This film was made really well, and the writing/dialogue were great; there were a lot of cool action scenes, some humor, and it just had a really cool Sci-Fi setting, so if you're interested in that, I think you'll really like this film. There are adult factors here, so I do recommend this for Adults. So, if you have already seen this film, let me know what you thought; if you haven't, I definitely recommend this film and hope you see it really soon! :)
