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.
