Community Reactions: Rian Johnson’s “Looper”

Tell us what you thought of Rian Johnson’s latest…

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.
