‘Looper’ Movie Review – A Little of Everything

Jordan Magrath

Jordan, who currently resides in Seattle, WA, has slowly become a film fanatic over the past couple of years. He attributes his love for film to the smash hit THE DARK KNIGHT which has created an (un)healthy obsession with both Christopher Nolan and the Batman franchise. Although he appreciates all genres of film, his favorite movies are typically psychological thrillers, with an emphasis on non-traditional narratives.

  • Thanks for the review of this movie. Most of the reviews I’ve read of this one have been pretty positive. Some of my coworkers at DISH invited me to go see this with them but I honestly don’t enjoy movie theatres so I’m going to wait. It looks like a pretty awesome movie though so I put it in my Blockbuster @Home queue that I have through my DISH account. That way it will be mailed to me right when it releases on DVD and I can watch at home. I look forward to sitting down and watching this one.

  • Man, I loved loved loved this movie. I won’t travel back in time but I am actually going to go back and see it again.

    Agree with your entire review. This is one of those movies that’s great when you step back and even  better when you start thinking about it.

    • Thanks! I am also seeing it again…in about 12 hours

    Really enjoyed this movie and your review. I especially like how we were introduced to the events of Joe’s 30 years while also giving us a taste on how people are being shipped back in time. I was surprised by the ending, but it works well in cleaning up some of the messiness that usually comes up when movies tackle time travel. Definitely am going to get the DVD when it comes out to rematch it just to pick out all the great visuals of the dystopian future.

    • I didn’t catch the gravity of some of the “flashbacks” the first time around.  But, by the second viewing, I was even more satisfied.

      It’s definitely a movie I’ll own right when it comes out.

      Happy you enjoyed the review!
