Going in to Looper I knew what to expect….I’d seen Brick and was an instant fan of director Rian Johnson. I was expecting the smart dialogue, the clever camera angles and above all else, a great film. Was I disappointed? Not at all!

Starting off with a dialog free epilogue really sets the scene for the rest of the film. It says Joe (Joseph Gordon Levitt) knows what he is doing down to the T.

Joe is a looper who assassinates people (kept restraint in a strait jacket and a hood) who have been sent back through time, 30 years into the future. When your contract as a looper ends, your future self is sent back for you to kill in order to ‘close the loop’.

Official trailer:

What might seem like just a throw away phrase in any other sci fi film is really explored here in a torture scene which while looks extremely clever, is actually very dark and twisted. But when on an assignment Joe notices the ‘client’ is sent back late, he is taken off guard. This doesn’t help when his target appears in the form of his future self (Bruce Willis) prepared to escape and get on with his own personal mission.

Did you say boom?

What makes this step up from your usual sci fi is definitely the dialogue. Instead of tackling the very complicated task of trying to decipher time travel, the characters accept the inevitable…’this time travel crap, just fries the brain’. Add Sara (Emily Blunt) into the mix as a woman trying to bring up her kid in a world where things are unraveling, and Young Joe starts to question his mission and what he is actually doing.

Rian’s style is evident and helped along by the big budget which only goes to show what vision the man has. The only downside I would say is that one expecting an action film will be disappointed….this is a sci fi thriller in its purest form.

The Five-Year Engagement

Posted on 27 April 2012 by vule01

 

The Five Year Engagement

Premijera 27.04 američki bioskopi – široka distribucija

Glavne uloge: Emily Blunt, Jason Segel, Alison Brie, Rhys Ifans, Chris Pratt, Kevin Hart, Dakota Johnson, Mindy Kaling, Mimi Kennedy, David Paymer, Jacki Weaver, Brian Posehn, Jim Poddick, Randall Park, Lauren Weedman, Michael Ensign, Clement von Franckenstein, David Mooney, Ron Lynch, Gordon Michaels, Aaron Lustig, Corey Fischer, Andrew Burlinson, Tracee Chimo

Scenario: Nicholas Stoller, Jason Segel

Režija: Nicholas Stoller

Tom Solomon je običan mladić čiji život se u potpunosti menja kada zaprosi svoju devojku Violet Barnes. Međutim, stvari se menjaju u potpuno drugom smeru od očekivanog. Violet dobija odličnu poslovnu ponudu na udaljenom Michigan univerzitetu što istovremeno znači veza na daljinu i brak koji će morati da pričeka. Raznoraznim nepredviđenim okolnostima njihova veridba će se razvuči čak na period od pet godina, a oni će u međuvremenu imati više nego dovoljno vremena da preispitaju da li je brak zaista ono što žele…

Glumac i scenarista Jason Segel u saradnji sa režiserom Nicholasom Stollerom napravio je već veliki uspeh sa komedijom Forgetting Sarah Marshall, a zatim i sa filmovima Get him to the Greek i The Muppets. U realizaciji filma Petogodišnja veridba pridružio im se i majstor za romantične komedije Judd Apatow koji skoro i da nema promašaj u ovom žanru.

Očekivanja: Izgleda da je sklopljena filmska ekipa koja ne može da omane, a ako pogledate trailer pred vama primetićete zašto su tvorci iza ovog filma toliko drugačiji od drugih. Politička korektnost i shematski scenariji o vezama su izgleda davna prošlost, a neće biti nikakvo iznenađenje ako The Five Year Engagement dostigne visine prošlogodišnje hit komedije filma Bridesmaides.
