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 love action movies and sci fi though.

But Children of Men was wack as hell.

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.

Congrats on seeing something coming that was even attempted to be hidden. It wasn't supposed to be a twist.

Not me. The only movie I think that could top this movie for me that comes out this year is Django Unchained.

Just watched Looper! Fantastic film Just curious, Why did Old Joe find it too strange to stare into Young Joe's eyes? Was it just a normal reaction to seeing your younger self or was it some foreshadowing that he would change the loop? Also if anyone is confused about how looper works, this blog explains everything http://www.aaronsw.com/weblog/looperexplained

I think it was just because it is strange to see your younger self. I know it would be weird to talk to teenage me.

That's not saying a lot.
