Directed by Rian Johnson.
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels, Piper Perabo, Paul Dano, Garret Dillahunt and Tracie Thoms.
A potent scene where the images are allowed to tell the story occurs when Joseph Gordon-Levitt touches a displaced silver bar in his secretive stash only to discover a droplet of blood on his fingertip; the symbolism is hard not ignore as his life savings have become blood money. And for those who are wondering, yes Bruce Willis does get an opportunity to go all Die Hard by taking out a series of henchmen with the help of a submachine gun. My only real problem is that one cannot help but feel that filmmaker Rian Johnson was crammed with so many ideas that some paring down would have helped a great deal with the pacing. Looper is probably too quirky to become a blockbuster hit; however, it is also a big reason why the movie is fun to watch.
