Re: Looper - Grade, Review, Discuss, ect.

Thought it was pretty good, but from the hype and reviews I was expecting something a LOT more twisty and mind-bendy, or something as cool and original as Memento or 12 Monkeys. But this didn't quite rise to that level unfortunately.

The entire concept of the Loopers just seems awfully silly and contrived, with mobsters using time travel technology and setting up this entire, complicated system.... just to off people?!? (Really? Because they don't have incinerators in the future or something??)

And once the kid enters the picture, it's not too hard to figure out the rest unfortunately.

The best part was the great performance by Willis, and the amazing way Levitt actually seems to look and act like a younger version of him.
