These days it’s nigh-on impossible to go to the cinema without at least some awareness of what it is you’re about to sit down and experience. When it came to LOOPER, I did my utmost to achieve that.
It wasn’t easy.
After reading the first synopsis and then seeing the first trailer, I decided: no more. And OPERATION: AVOID ALL INFORMATION ABOUT LOOPER was in full effect.
So if, like me, you’re out to keep as much detail about this film out of and away from your film-going psyche before going to see it*, then this simplistic review is just for you.
Ready? Here we go –
What LOOPER is:
– A brilliant vision of the future
– A masterclass in character study and story-telling
– A modern classic that’ll be studied and revered for years to come
What LOOPER isn’t:
– The film you’re expecting
– An easy watch
To say anymore would be to ruin it beyond all recognition. Even if I told you what films it echoed, for me at least, I think that would take something away from it too.
Book your tickets.
See this film.
—Big love to Stella Artois and Little White Lies for organising last night’s preview—

Yeah she woz.
I have a problem, with Looper. I liked the acting between the Joes (just made me realise, Willis is playing the “original” GI Joe), the action was glorious and bloody, but as a science fiction film it was completely broken. IGN has a quote from the director, saying, once you establish an internal logic you stick to it; the problem is, he doesn’t, he ends up making a complete nonsense of it all.
