How does this compare to other great sci-fi films, say Inception? Because I'm not a big sci-fi fan, yet Inception happens to be one of my favourite films, as is District 9!

If you like Inception then I'm pretty sure you're gonna dig Looper too.

Well I bought it for a very reasonable price and shall watch it tonight. I heavily doubt it'll be better than Inception and District 9, but nevertheless I am looking forward to it, because of all the wonderful praise the film has been getting! I'll be back with my verdict (not that anyone cares )

I saw it and I actually really really liked it! Though not a patch on Inception or District 9 it is still (as stated above) a very solid movie indeed. It was thrilling, had great directing and intelligent (if not confusing) writing. For me, the film really hit its stride when Emily Blunt's character was introduced. That stopped the film from falling into 'man running away' cliches and took on board a whole new human element, proving it has brains as well as heart. Although, it is a little over-hyped as I wouldn't say it was the best film of 2012 (I liked The Dark Knight Rises, The Cabin in the Woods, Sinister and Amour better than this) but it's still a great film. I really liked the ending.

8.5/10 (at first I gave it a 9, then an 8 so I'll put it in the middle. I might change it when I watch it again.)
