‘Looper’ among years best despite snub

DVD Review

(Continued)

emann@pvdemocrat.com —

What keeps one interested is the powerful inner conflict and relationship between a man who is supposed to be the same person, but in many ways becomes two as each is not satisfied accepting the same outcome. What should be confusing works out so well as we can’t help but feel the pain experienced by the older Simmons and also want to root for the younger version who realizes he can actually make the world a better place.

Adding to the movie is other great performances like Sara Rollings (Emily Blunt), a mother hoping for a better future for her child and Cid Harrington (Pierce Gagnon), her five year old boy who adds an almost “Shining” or “Omen” like flair to the plot. It’s not a movie that’s afraid to throw punches and if you can keep an open mind, it’s something I highly recommend watching at least once. Overall, “Looper” earns a respectable four out of five rain makers.
