Looper is a fantastic, mind-bending sci-fi thriller with a superb cast and a surprising emotional punch.

Writer-director Rian Johnson establishes his rules of time travel and its uses/effects efficiently and early on without overbearing exposition. From here the film is a great mix of action, unpredictable plotting and character drama.

Looper is the most original sci-fi film since Inception. And even if it never reaches that same level of masterful storytelling, this is a fantastic film that shouldn't be missed by any fan of the genre.

I just saw this movie as well, and thought it was really great until about the last 20 minutes. Then it just got way, way too ridiculous, and not in a good way. For what it's worth, I'd say it's 3 stars for me.
