Random Review: Looper

My husband Evol Eric knew how excited I was to see Looper. Frankly, everyone did. I had made it blatantly obvious since the first time I saw the trailer. So, on September 29th, after some lunch and some Halloween shopping (during which I bought the hat in the picture below), Eric surprised me with a date to see the movie. Needless to say, I was pretty happy. ;) 

Here's my review of Looper from Get Glue:

When I saw the trailer for Looper in theaters, I was so impressed and excited that I did a little dance in my chair when the trailer ended. That's the only time that's ever happened! So naturally, I had to see it. And today, I have.

I was hoping Looper wouldn't disappoint, and it definitely didn't. Everything from the acting to the special effects to the writing to the score was so amazing and well done.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt did a stellar job handling the lead role, as expected, and Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt were really good in it as well. The prosthetics on Joseph (applied to make him look like Bruce Willis who plays the older version of him) were very well done too. He looks so different in this film, and it was executed so well that you almost forget it's not his real face. 

 In my opinion, there could have been a little more back-story on some of the aspects in the film, but other than that, it was a really good film, with stunning visual effects, heart wrenching acting, good writing and some cool twists that will keep you on the edge of your seat, really cool action sequences, and a score that sets a hypnotic and futuristic mood for the film.

If you love science fiction and action, or if you're just a fan of good movies, I definitely recommend it!

 I leave you with the infamous trailer:

 I rest my case.
