Looper (2012)

Looper approaches the condition of a cult classic, but doesn't really get there. Technically it is perfect: it's sober, solid, with great camera work, beautiful pictures and amazing editing. It is humble, and doesn't try to impose you its quality, not forcing you to like it, and that is a great attitude. The plot is very well written and interesting, even if some plot-holes common to time-travel themed movies may appear. Joseph Gordon-Levitt does a great job impersonating a young Bruce Willis. Even his face's expressions are equal. Bruce Willis himself is also great, as great as any script allows him to be. It really is everything you could ask for a quality thriller movie with a sci-fi touch. The thing is, in this genre, you could expect a more breathtaking and ambitious touch, which means, although being everything a good thriller needs to be, Looper is not an unforgettable movie, one that astonishes you and makes you wondering for a long time. It is forgettable, but undoubtedly amazingly well done.
