Looper is an intellectually clever take on the paradox's of time travel. I was not alone in being confused briefly that the travel was from 2044 to our present. Nearly all the movie takes place in 2044, but the time travelers are arriving from 2074. A couple of these trips I have yet to figure out.(Spoiler alert an explanation, and a better one) The Looper universe is perfectly formed. The Kid from 3rd rock from the Sun has developed into a great actor. A story about killing your future self is totally captivating. I would call it a low level action movie, that does not quite live up to the hype. That said I really enjoyed it and it was worth the trip to experience it on the big screen.
Three point nine Stars.
