Preview: Looper (2012)


A sci-fi tale where futuristic mafia men send victims back in time to be killed and disposed of, but when one "looper" as they're called, must kill his future self, trying to contain the cunning and knowledgable self becomes a challenge.

  • Poster: B-


The poster, although somewhat inventive, is still rather plain and limited in space usage. Having too much blank space isn't a positive in most design situations.

  • Trailer: B- / B


The concept is interesting, but the trailer makes this look like grade D science fiction, which is a shame considering the talent involved.

This trailer does make for a more pleasing sci-fi spectacle than the prior, but not quite enough to make it wholly distinctive.
