Looper is generating quite a lot of buzz, and is being ranked as one of the best films of the year by many film critics. Scratch that, I don’t want to hype this up: Looper is a horrible film, don’t watch it!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis play an older and younger version of the same character, Joe the time traveling hit-man, and the film centers around how the time traveling hit-man has to kill his future self. Confusing? Yes, in a very very good way. Thought-provoking, fresh films aren’t really given this type of treatment, but I’m glad Looper is an exception. The film gives off a sort of 12 Monkeys mixed with Terminator kind of vibe, and Rian Johnson is an amazing talent that needs to be recognized. Joseph Gordon-Levitt starred in Johnson’s first feature film, Brick, a detective story set in a high school, and now Johnson and Gordon-Levitt are looping back to reunite for this film. Can you tell that I’m excited?
