Rian Johnson’s newest Looper hits theaters this weekend. I saw it yesterday after the screening of Life of Pi and one word came to mind after walking out, overrated. Definitely entertaining but super long-winded and not so well-executed in a concept that is surely inventive. Time travel stuff is cool but the Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the young Bruce Willis is very distracting, especially when he’s talking. I believe this is the birth of a franchise. Watch out for sequels (if it makes enough money). I’m curious to see what our readers think. Be a critic.
