Saw it on Friday, this was a very exciting movie that kept me guessing. I kept waiting for Kid Blue to have some significance but all he ended up doing was fricking up.

I thought it was pretty damn good and a pretty good twist on the average time travel plot. The antagonist was actually the protagonist at the same time. While in most time travel films, the past self and the future self may not like each other, they both try to preserve each other. Not so in this film.

I really liked it, my question is: SPOILERS










People have raised the question of why close the loop by killing yourself basically, why not just have one looper kill another. My question, why aren't they putting up more of a fight in the future? You'd know its 30 years, I'd think they'd be running and hiding, holed with an armory ready to fight

I already asked that in may post above.

Fourth, why would you let a guy know when he was going to die. I think I would spend a long time preparing to kick some arse if I knew they were coming for me in thirty years. Even if they got me, I think I could take a few with me.

My husband and I wondered why Sid's gunshot wound/graze didn't disappear after JGL shot himself.


Since the mother lived she was able to tend to this wound before it got infected, giving sid a synthetic jaw. Had he been left alone it would have gotten infected (remember when Emily Blunt was cleaning up JGL's wounds?). The whole point of the movie was that maternal care is needed.

Thought it was a good movie, not POY worthy but still very good.

I was really perplexed why they brought up the TK stuff till we finally learned about the kids crazy TK skills.

Its always cool to see peoples interpretations of the future. The eye drops for drugs was original, I thought. In general they did a good job without going over the top with the futuristic world.

I thought the side story of the guy who shot of his foot(kid blue) seemed a bit distracting. For a while I thought we were going to find out that guy was a younger Jeff Daniels.

Just saw it. Why did they make Bruce Willis out to be a bad guy? That little kid was a monster. Just imagine how bad he will get as an adult. If you could kid Hitler as a kid, you do it. Also, did they imply that the little kid grows up to be him? The circle line got me confused.

The child actor was 5. The character was 5. She told the dude 10 to throw him off because she wasn't sure if he was the assassin or not.

re: Looper = Movie of the year


I found it odd that they did the eye drop drug thing for the nearer future, but then seemingly referenced heroin use thirty years after that. Doesn't really have anything to do with the quality of the movie, I just found it interesting that they went futuristic with the drug choice and then to a drug that would have been a couple hundred years old at that point in the future.
