Not as great as I hoped it would be,.. BUT still it was worth the long wait at the NYPL .

The premise is a bit of a stretch, but once past that,.. it kept me thinking, and interested.

Decent action/time travel movie, a little slow and confusing at times.

Almost a Movie worth seeing, But not quite. I felt that there were things that dragged the movie. its about 30 minutes too long.

Very interesting concept, good performances, and great action. Yet, by the end of the movie I felt like something was still missing from it all? Lack of more storyline, a "romance" scene between Josheph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt that really wasn't necessary at all, etc.? Hard to pinpoint, but it's the only reason why I gave it 3-stars instead of 5 (mainly for personal reasons, and no real fault of the movie itself).
Nevertheless, it's a movie certainly worth watching for fans of the actors / sci-fi.

Interesting ideas well executed. The little fella that plays the "rainmaker" is outstanding. Definitely worth seeing.

Fresh concept, I really enjoyed Joseph Gordon-Levitt's performance in this film, he just caught my attention. Little Pierce Gagnon "The Rainmaker" was fantastically brilliantly sweet, with sudden tones of creepiness. He makes the viewer cherish him while on his best behavior, and then recoil at his--challenging moments. Some kids are just born stars. I didn't care for the cheap "love scenes" because it took away from the movie, and it keeps younger audiences from experiencing the original ideas that the movie has to offer, as well as the consequences brought on by the actions of "Joe" and esp. "Old Joe."

One of the best extra features I've seen too, including the "hidden short".

A bit predictable at times, but all in all not a bad way to kill a few hours. Not Bruce Willis's best work, but hot his worst either.

A good action, suspense film.

An intriguing film about the illegal time travel trade. Its only error is that it spent too much time dwelling on the set-up before getting the story started. A suspenseful thriller, I found it immensely satisfying. I highly recommend LOOPER.

Older Joe: I don't want to talk about time travel because if we start talking about it then we're going to be here all day talking about it, making diagrams with straws.

Joe: "...Then I saw it. I saw a mom who would die for her son... A man who would kill for his wife... A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it."
