Feature Detail

Director: Rian Johnson

Cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt

Looper delivers a smart, bravely original blend of futuristic sci-fi and good old-fashioned action, with time-travel, mob men, and assassins galore. Unlike some time-travel films, though, Looper goes to extraordinary lengths to leave every base covered in its quest to avoid plot holes and inconsistencies – a goal that’s achieved with flying colors. As well as confidently dealing with a complex script that could have easily become too convoluted, writer/director Rian Johnson also creates a very believable future, filled with people and events that all feel plausible. It’s a film that treats its audience with respect, and it features a wonderfully multifaceted and intelligent story that rewards patience and concentration with a fantastic and satisfying conclusion.
