Looper…

Looper is not, “This years The Matrix”, or whatever crap they put on those posters. It’s easy to be blasé now, but The Matrix was totally amazing when it came out, before they could ruin its legacy with the sequels…

So now I’ve managed your expectations, it’s worth saying that Looper is a pretty decent film. Unlike most time-travel related films, it doesn’t try to get too intellectual, which is good because on the way out I listened to some guy trying to explain the plot to his uninterested girlfriend and he got it all wrong. Time travel is a mind-f*ck for regular folk, so stupid people should steer clear of the concept…

Joseph Gordon-Levitt looked so different in this film, which was really freaking me out. I was starting to wonder what the hell he had done to himself since his last film outing. The reason becomes obvious as the film progresses. I must say they did a good job on that front.

There are a few fantastic scenes. I’d like to say more, but it would be a real spoiler if I did. In summary, it’s a pretty good Sci-Fi film.

Cheers

Tim…
