In the futuristic action thriller Looper, time travel will be invented but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past where a looper, a hired gun, like Joe is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good until the day the mob decides to close the loop, sending back Joe's future self for assassination.
Looper is easily the best film I've seen this year! I loved everything about it! I was in awe from start to finish. The directing, performances, and plot are all top notch. Pierce Gagnon basically steals the show as Cid with the best child performance I've seen since Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense. I teared up at one point because I was so happy with what I was seeing. I can't recommend this film highly enough and I think most people will love it.
Writer-director Rian Johnson made a splash with his genre mash-up debut, Brick, before struggling with his muddled sophomore effort, The Brothers Bloom. Rather than paring things back Johnson stubbornly ploughed forward with another ambitious, mind bending extravaganza. Although I’ve had to admire his playful blending of genres and styles I’ve never quite bought wholeheartedly into vision - until now.
Looper is still a film that suffers from the director’s familiar problems - too ambitious and too unfocused - but here the ambition is matched with an energy that is infectious. Rian Johnson has managed to take elements from every major, and not so major, sci-fi film of the past thirty years, stick them together and then, miraculously, made it work.…
Taking the tried & tested formula of time-traveling in sci-fi films, Looper creates an original beauty of a film that is as satisfying as its smart plot. It's not so complex that you're gonna have a hard time figuring it out nor is it too simple that you can spare your attention away from it for a while. The balance this movie has between its sci-fi elements & action-drama is its real strength, making it one of the best films of its year.
Looper presents a future where time travel has been invented but outlawed. Run by criminal organizations, it allows them to erase their enemies by sending them back in time where they are cleaned up by the "loopers". This tells…
I want so desperately to shake anyone into oblivion who has rated Looper less than [a super] low three stars, but I need to just accept it as perception and if everyone loved all of the same films, then the world would be a very boring place, right? Bullshit, but ideal, I suppose. I just find it almost strange that so many people loved Django Unchained but found this almost average or with "flaws", when for me, it was the other way around. I just wonder, did we watch the same movies? Can we loop back in time and make you watch this again, please? I am not trying to offend anyone, I am just truly at a loss for…
I never get tired of the way this stacks smaller stories on top of each other to form its larger self, even while it maintains the strictest narrative and formal economy.
Rian Johnson...you fucking genius you.
Not only did you make an awesome movie...you may have just become my favorite director working today. It's either you or Paul Thomas Anderson.
Joseph Gordon Levitt...even if you do look like a damn catfish in all that makeup...you gave the best Bruce Willis impression ever.
Bruce Willis...you haven't been this badass since Die Hard man and you are fucking awesome again.
Looper...you may have just became my favorite movie of the year.
Either this or The Avengers.
You know what...fuck it. At risk of causing some controversy, I think this IS the best film of the year; so far at least.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
SPOILERS. Se não viu o filme, não continue.
A grande questão do filme é: quem é o Rainmaker?
Com base nas pistas do filme, e considerando que nenhuma cena é por acaso, temos as seguintes possibilidades:
1- O Rainmaker é o menino porque a) ele tem telecinese foda b) o código de nascimento é dele c) ele faz "chover" sangue
2- RAINMAKER = SARA COMANDANDO O FILHO - essa pra mim é a melhor porque dá sentido a todas as cenas do filme. A Sara não seria mãe do menino. Ela teria percebido o poder dele, matado a mãe e sequestrado a criança para criá-la para satisfazer suas vontades.
Se não for essa a resposta, por que mostrar:
Looper is a perfect addition to the already deep list of classic American Sci-Fi films. The directing and plot are witty and engaging as are the actors that accompany the film. Gordon-Levitt's Makeup is so convincing at times, that I could almost swear he was a younger Bruce Willis. Looper is an absolute must see.
I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I hadn't hardly heard much about it before hand, and had only seen the trailer on YouTube. The movie is pretty well thought out and portrays the paradoxes of time travel in a way that allows even paradoxically minded viewers to look past it. The film also doesn't dwell much on the time travel, but rather continues to develop the story. The characters are all dynamic enough that at the beginning, you rooting for one person, and in the middle, someone else. However, by the end, you don't know who to root for because they all have flaws, and all have strengths. The CGI was pretty well done, and the action scenes weren't too over the top as to be ridiculous. I'd loop back and watch it again.
Looper thrills and boggles the mind the way only good science fiction can. Not even Joseph Gordon-Levitt's colored-on, Scorsese-lookin' eyebrows can detract from it.
The first good western story I've seen which involves time loop action.
Sup guys I finally saw that movie everyone was talking about four years ago
This was a film that I enjoyed because it took an interesting sci-fi concept and ran with it to create a compelling story with characters that I enjoyed watching. Just like any film dealing with time travel however, if you do stop and think about how time travel actually works in this universe, you are going to have a bad time, but this film does a good job of creating a good story that makes you not care about any time travel inconsistencies or flaws.
Good. Shoulda been great.
Help me out with this one guys.
I think Some Like it Hot is the one that marked me the…
