And that would've happened. Why was he given time to kill Sara and not just transported back to the future?

Why does Cid loving his mom stop Joe from killing her? Why does his love for her send him to the future? His lack of love for her wasn't what made him the Rainmaker. It was the killing of his mom whom he loved that made him the Rainmaker.

The future was constantly changing throughout the movie. The death of Joe was the only thing that became definite.

If there's no rainmaker then Joe would've disappeared to the future.

But the only time there is no rainmaker was once Joe "closed the loop." If he doesn't close the loop, then the cycle is going to repeat itself again. Even then, it is still possible that Cid can become the Rainmaker.

Also, it was just a theory of Joe's that he would go back to the future (teehee). Nothing else in the movie indicated that he would definitely go back to the future.

Joe dying or staying in the past(same as dying) closes the loop right?
I love the movie and especially when the kid had that psycho look. They should make a Looper 2.

I hope this is a joke. Children of Men was an incredible movie!


BTW, I thought Looper was very good.

At best, they could come away with a decent straight to DVD sequel. A true Looper 2 with the same characters would be a bad idea since the movie wrapped up nicely for the character of Joe.

Just saw this last night a drive-in theater, and was puzzled why they made it so obvious that Bruce Willis' character was Joe from the future. Girl I was with saw it coming too. Or are we wrong?

Personally, I thought the kid/Rainmaker character and angle was a little too much. If they would have just stuck with the Loop/Looper gangs then it would have been even better.

I thought it was a good flick nonetheless.
