Lets go to the movies: Looper

Sunday, 7 October 2012

I was persuaded that going to the cinema to see Looper (not Taken 2, that I really wanted to see) was a good idea.

Here's my movie lowdown:

The concept of the film is time travel- it's set 30-ish years in the future and time travel has been invented but was immediately made illegal. So the only people that do time travel are gangster-type people who send people to the past where a gun waits to kill them, because it's much easier to hide a body then rather than in the modern day where technology is all tip-top.

So why is it called Looper?

Crime bosses turn to time travel to send their targets to the past to be killed using "loopers" When crime bosses want to end a looper's contract, they send his older version back to be killed by his younger self, referred to as 'closing the loop'

Then alongside all this a section of the population have been given some magical coin floating powers that seems kind of irrelevant for a long time
If it sounds a bit weird, it's because it is! It's been referred to as the new 'Matix' but to be honest, I didn't really like that movie...

To sum up it's a lot of guns (a lot) a lot of death (a lot a lot) and a lot of time travel and concentrating so that you don't miss something important!

This is their 'concentration' face

I hope I havent put you off, I think it just either is your sort of film or it isn't.. and this sort of isn't!
