Rian Johnson may have made one of the best films of the year and perhaps one of the best sci-films of the last decade with the highly original and extremely innovative Looper. Johnson’s time-travel film echoes shades of The Terminator and gives us a bright hope for the future of the genre.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s transformation into Bruce Willis is impressive and shows his dedication to the role and his ability to take a character to the next level. Although Bruce Willis’ performance is similar to his normal action roles, he does give out a little more heart and characterization with this film, and it shows.
Our very own Jonathan Lack had this to say in his review:
Looper marks a significant step forward for time-travel storytelling. It may not introduce any revolutionary concepts in and of itself, but Johnson’s outstanding vision and execution push at the genre’s emotional and psychological boundaries harder than any sci-fi work in recent memory.
The film will be coming to Blu-Ray with the following bonus material:
- Audio Commentary with Actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt and Director Rian Johnson
- 22 Deleted Scenes with commentary by Director Rian Johnson and Noah Segan
- Looper Animated Trailer
- Scoring Looper
- Evil Demon Golf Ball From Hell Easter Egg
- Science of Time Travel featurette (Blu-ray exclusive)
- Abe Gathers the Troops test (Blu-ray exclusive)
Looper will be available to own on December 31st, 2012.
