the mother turns out to be pregnant from the one night stand with Looper Jr. And the baby Rainmaker becomes crazy jealous of his baby sibling and ends up doing all the bad things that happened in Looper Snr's time. So Looper Jr killing himself made no difference in the end.
I wanted to like the movie. It had elements that should have made it good: Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, time travel. Nope. Twenty minutes into it I found myself bored and disliking it. It did not improve.
There was only one redeeming feature about it, and it's not enough to make me watch it again: the unexpected nekkid Piper Perabo scene. That woman has one fine body.
One and half stars out of 5, two if I'm in a good mood. I'm not.
I return to this long dormant threat to report that I have finally seen Looper again, for the first time since I saw it in the theater. I liked it before but because of its intricate plot, didn't fully appreciate it until the second time through. It is showing on STARZ this month, give it a try if you were underwhelmed the first time through,I think you will like it more. Although I gave Looper a rating of 7 Stars out of 10 after I saw it in the theater, this time I gave it a solid 8 Stars with a clear conscience.
I should make clear that I may be prejudiced where this film is concerned because the actresses who may be my two favorites these days, Emily Blunt, and Piper Perabo, were featured. I do love those girls.
