Looper is getting amazing reviews
 
http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/looper/

So far, 100% with an avg rating of 8.6/10 from 26 critics.

Just a few critic quotes:

Quote:

The smartest movie of the year and the best action movie of the year.

Quote:

Rian Johnson's 'Looper' is one of the year's best films... a huge jump forward for a filmmaker whose first two films both exhibited a strong, clear voice.

Quote:

Stitched together with dynamism and precision

Quote:

[Rian Johnson's] grandly conceived, impressively mounted third feature shows a giddy, geeky interest in science-fiction, then forces it into the back seat and lets the multidimensional characters drive.

Quote:

There's a bit of Twelve Monkeys, more than a dash of Terminator 2.

This may end up being my favorite movie of the year.

It will probably be one of the few movies that get higher critic reviews than user reviews. I'll probably watch it with a male friend cause girls will probably just gush every 5 seconds about how hot JGL is.

I don't know, it sounds like pure entertainment. Out of the 26 critics so far, it has twice drawn 2 comparisons to the Terminator franchise, which is beloved by fans. One critic called it the best sci-fi film since 2006's Children of Men.

The previews look promising. Good to see it's getting the reviews to back it up. Nothing worse than previews that get you all pumped up then the movie's crap

I think the movie comes out a week before 2k13 is out.

:biggums:

It looked real wack from the trailer.

I love action movies and sci fi though.

But Children of Men was wack as hell.

Really?? I, as well as the general critical consensus, thought 'Children of Men' was one of the best sci-fi/post-apocalyptic/distopia movies of the last ten years

Yeah, that's what everyone says. I hated it though.

I've been waiting for this to see for a while since I first saw the trailer at some other movie I went to. Glad to see its getting some good reviews.

I disliked it too. I was so pumped to see it. I thought it would be amazing.

I don't quite remember why I disliked but I want to say I found it rather boring which is odd. Guess it never drew me in.

I'll check it out. JGL and Willis (when he wants to be) are both really good. It's an interesting concept. But the trailers look just crappy.

Lincoln's trailer disappointed the hell outta me to, more Spielberg schmaltz, but it's DDL playing Lincoln.
