If you've seen the trailers for 'Looper,' then you already know Joseph Gordon-Levitt doesn't quit look like himself in the film. In this time traveling sci-fi actioner, he's supposed to be playing the past self of Bruce Willis' character, so certain physical adjustments had to be made to make that believable. However, he now looks so plastic that he resembles more of James Deen... and we're not talking about the iconic actor.

'Looper' Review

"Time travel has not yet been invented, but thirty years from now it will have been."
Our lives are tapestries woven together out of strands of choice. But who sews the strands together: us or a higher power?
Beneath the sci-fi gadgetry and special effects, this is what time travel movies are all about: the nature of free will. Consider the elegantly constructed sentence above. "Time travel has not yet been invented" -- suggesting an open future shaped by men -- "but thirty years from now it will have been" -- not "will be," suggesting a future already carved in stone by an unseen but omnipotent hand.
The complexity of that sentence, uttered several times throughout the brilliant new time travel movie 'Looper' reflects the complexity of the film, which is as thorough and as thrilling an exploration of the philosophical issues around time travel as has ever been put to screen. It's also an incredibly suspenseful sci-fi noir. In other words: it's pretty damn good.
