It’s Episode 125 Jonathon and James from Black Men Can’t Jump in Hollywood join Flixwatcher,  this time with guest Corrina Antrobus (@CorrinaCorrina and @BechdelTestFest ) standing in for Helen to review Rian Johnson’s 2012 sci fi Looper.

Looper stars Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (with some weird things going on with his face to make him look like a younger Bruce Willis) at time-traveling hitmen. That is the basic premise anyway. Looper dazzled critics when it was released with its auteur turned blockbuster direction from Johnson (his debut was the neo-noir mystery Brick), mind-bending time travel concept and strong cast. However, six years after its release and as a repeat viewing it feels less special and possibly problematic (what is going on with Joesph Gordon-Levitt’s face?)



On reflection, once you start looking closely there are quite a few holes and this is reflected in the scores for repeat viewing and the overall score of 3.23 for Looper.

What do you guys think? Have you seen Looper.? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
