DVD review: Looper
Sunday 27 January 2013
Like a melancholy remake of The Terminator, Looper stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a hitman whose targets have been sent back to him from the future ... which is fine until he finds himself face to face with his older self (Bruce Willis).
Setting aside the issue that Gordon-Levitt and Willis look nothing like each other, Rian Johnson has made a brainy thriller with nicely flawed characters and a haunting, film-noir atmosphere.
