Guy kills people sent from the future but things get complicated when his next target turns out to be an older version of himself. 2 hours of mind numbing nonsense later it’s all over.
Reason for bleaklisting?
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis are not the same people so the movie doesn’t work.
Moe is an assassin who specialises in killing anybody that isn’t a fan of 1980s cult classic Krull. After ten years doing the job, Moe is stunned when he kills a bearded guy only to find it is Ken Marshall, the star of the original movie. From this point on Moe becomes the hunted party but finds whenever he utters an expletive it is bleeped out by some unseen power. Moe’s former employers and Krull fans worldwide gradually close the net on our incompetent anti-hero. Moe decides the best thing to do is to destroy his DVD copy of Krull to bring down the organisation he has devoted his life to and in the hope of restoring Ken Marshall to life. Only when he has burned the DVD to ashes does Moe suddenly remember there is more than one copy of Krull out there and, even worse, that this isn’t one of those confusing time travel movies. The story ends with Moe uttering yet another expletive as the mob descends on him and he smiles as this time the vulgar word is aptly not bleeped out.
Hate Krull? You’re screwed.
Who should direct?
Who should star?
Marlon Brando, James Dean and Katharine Hepburn.
Mr B compares the stories
Looper is a challenge for slow thinkers such as myself but it’s a great movie as well. I’m utterly perplexed as to what has happened with Charlie’s alternative. He has eradicated the time travel element and instead focused on a bloodthirsty appreciation society for 1983 movie, Krull. It isn’t a great movie, in my opinion, but it’s there and you have to deal with it as best you can like Shark in Venice or Movie 43. A prestigious cast directed by Oliver Stone sounds like a dream combination to me but three great leads don’t deserve to have their names tarnished with this obscenity.
