Looper has many plus points, from the stylistic opening scenes to the smart script and original storyline that concludes with a very satisfying end that will ultimately leave you thinking and talking about the whole film for some time afterwards. It’s initially paced at a speed that manages to hold your suspense whilst punching you in the face with action and superb acting, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt destined for a big and bright future (not to mention Johnson’s future too), but there are also some very slight negative points as the film progresses (I’m nitpicking), if you could call them negative as such. The pace shirks from its beginnings and becomes more, well, boggy and perhaps less entertaining as the earlier sequence of events, but no less enjoyable as the plot progressively develops in to something very interesting and so, take nothing away from Looper, it is a smart and largely well put together film full of great moments that provides something truly memorable – loved it.
