Funny! How LOOPER Should Have Ended
The latest efforts from the "How it Should Have Ended" crew offers up a hilarious alternate ending to Rian Johnson's critically acclaimed sci-fi thriller, Looper. Hit the jump to check it out!
You know, Looper is one of those rare films that does so many things right, has so many jaw-droppingly good scenes, that at the end of the day I don't mind shutting my brain off to enjoy it. Let's face it time-travel movies will always have issues... unless you're watching 2004's Primer. But with Primer you get to see how character development and dialogue suffer when a film spends an abundance of time explaining the "science" behind time-travel.
In the futuristic action thriller Looper, time travel will be invented - but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a "looper" - a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) - is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good... until the day the mob decides to "close the loop," sending back Joe's future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.
LOOPER will be available on DVD/Blu-ray December 31st!
