What a film!! It has been a while since I have seen a Hollywood film that has had my full attention, so I am super glad that I went to see Looper yesterday!
This is going to be a short review because I don’t want to give anything away, but I will say that this film is a must see.
If you like films that keep you on the edge of your seat and have you think ‘What the hell?!’ This is the perfect film for you. I will say, make sure that you get into the cinema on time and do not miss one minute of this film because too much is going on. If you miss something, you might not understand the whole film. So, no drinks before or during this film, because I do not suggest toilet breaks!
This film has an original idea and is not like your generic action film. Although there is running, killing and blood, the story is so interesting that I think this film could work with out all the killing. (However the killing does have a big part to do with the film!)
I thought I knew what the ending would be and thought I had everything sussed out, but boy was I wrong!
If I had to compare it to another film, I would have to say it is a mix between Time Travellers Wife and Inception. Both genius films with an amazing concept, awesome visuals and great acting.
This has been a very brief review of the film because I fear that if I talk more about it, I might give away too much of what the film is about. But it is a film that keeps you guessing and is original.
***** 5 out of 5 for me!
