Movie review: Looper

Grade: A-

Here’s the best thing about the movie: they didn’t give anything away about the plot in the previews. The last movie I can think of that pulled that off was *Inception*. Which reminds me that *Loopers* is very similar to *Inception* in that there are multiple timelines going on and both are extremely intricate, complex, movies. Oh, and both star Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

I doubt if many people will consider *Loopers* as good as *Inception* but that in no way diminishes the quality of *Loopers* because *Inception* was epic. Just being in the same ballpark as *Inception* is complimentary enough.

The acting and story are the best part of the movie – which is how all movies should be. The characters are complex and some of them grow during the course of the story unfolding.
