 Looper Questions (MAJOR SPOILERS!!)
topic by popsjenkins - 10-01-2012, 09:25 AM


I do not feel like using spoiler tags so if you have not seen the movie please do not read further.


Seriously, If you continue on, don't complain if it's ruined for you.






Is it possible that Joe is actually Cid? There is evidence against it but at the same time it could be true.


Was Jeff Bridges character and Big Blue actually the same person? They never showed Jeff Bridges Foot to see if it was shot off, but they did have a weird relationship.

How did Sarah know so much about loopers?

Wasn't the scene with old Seth losing the body parts just awesome??

Did Jeff Bridges set up Joe by telling him to go to China instead of France?


Post others if you have them

They were cutting the limbs off of young Seth once they got him out of Joe's floor safe. That's why they were disappearing from Old Seth

I think they did 30 bars of gold because not only are you k!lling yourself but that will also be your last job. It's like severance pay.

I thought the same thing before i realized, that if he was sid, he would of disappeared with bruce - in that time paradox or whatever


How did Sarah know so much about loopers?

its like 2040, everyone who is not a bum knows of them it seems, kinda like FBI - if you follow or its possible that sids father was a looper



Did Jeff Bridges set up Joe by telling him to go to China instead of France?

This is possible but it think he just ment it as..... look i been too the future - china Flourishs much more then france, the rainman in the future would of hunted him down if it was china or france tho

Post others if you have them



This movie ties up all the loose ends , i just have one problem

early in the movie - joe states that he doesnt care about anybuddy but himself

why did he care at the end - his transition from not caring to caring was kinda fast.

Nah, I dont think so. I do wish they showed a Old Cid/Rainmaker at some point in the movie. An evil version and/or a good version at the end of the movie.

You mean Jeff Daniels, but that would be wild. I have to see the movie again to catch some clues.

I wonder about that too. I guess loopers may not be much of a secret in that time. But i remember young Joe explaining time travel to Sarah so i dunno.

After that scene, I was hoping I wouldn't see Old Joe start to lose body parts lol. That would've been rough to see for a main character in a movie.

I think that was a inside joke maybe about how France may not be stable in the future. The usual currency throughout the movie was silver, gold, and Renminbi (Chinese dollars). So I'm a.ssuming the US Dollar fell pretty hard. And if the USA falls, Europe is falling with it. But you could be right b/c Jeff Daniels is from the future also so he may want Joe on a particular path so Rainmaker has an eye on him.

I think only the future self dies in that case, not the past self. If young Joe Dies then old Joe can't exist, but if Sid is young Joe, he has not lived to the point where he would die yet.


I also think he began to care because he saw himself in Sid:

Joe's mother was a junkie that gave him up - So was Sid's, so Joe began to relate. Plus Sarah gave up that cookie and that flipped his sh*t real quick too.

correct, that was partly the basis of the film, the loopers were k!lling their future selves to close the loop.

yeah and old joe didn't lose limbs and get disfigured and stuff like old cid because the address old cid went to where he was shot by the looper thugs, if you notice, young cid was inside being torture. so young cid's arms being cut off would result in the loss of old cid's arms, et cetera

yea it was a neverending loop if u remember, the 1st time Joe got away, he had the bars on his back and managed to escape, the second time, he k!lled himself right away, and the 3rd time he escaped again, so ( the way i took it ) he made different decisions multiple times, but he actually had to live throughout all of those years again, until he got to the point where he was supposed to k!ll himself. The only way to truly close the loop was to k!ll his present self so his future self would never exist. Which is why him starting to care so soon isnt shocking, because in that reality, it took him about 90 years to get there.

wait i don't undrestand. how does the first loop continue tho if the future joe gets away? i thought the loop only goes if you k!ll your future self, thereby creating a definite future scenario?

yep. So the present self would live for 30 years, then wake up one day & get kidnapped by the mob. Then you'd get sent back 30 years in past via time machine to get a.ssassinated by a younger version of yourself.

Its a never ending loop unless someone or something intervenes with that Loopers fate to change it.

idk to be honest, i figured he mustve died at some point, but think about it also like this.....This is how i viewed it by the way......The first Joe got away, Young Joe was hunted down for thirty years, and managed to elude them, but after that time he was once again captured and sent back, and thats when he k!lled himself immediately. I dont necessarily think the future self has to be k!lled to keep the loop going. I think as long as the present Joe lives on, he will eventually be sent back that continues the loop

I don't see how Kid Blue could be Abe.....remember the scene when Abe smashed Kid Blue's hand as a punishment? Why the hell would he hurt himself that severely, also wouldn't his future self instantly feel the permanent hand injury....kinda like the others with the arm cravings? ...but, also I don't remember/can picture Abe's facial expression/mood after smashing Kid Blue's hand.

I think Sara knew about the Loopers because she use to be a stripper/escort at that club the Loopers checked in at/partied at (or been there before and got hit on by Looper(s) with TK before) Sara always said she lived a bad life before the farm life.....constant clubbin'/stripping/escorting are all possibilities.

I don't think there were 3 different loops. I think that at the moment he actually k!lled future Joe was actually a jump back in time. I think there were only 2 loops.

The first loop, Joe actually k!lled future Joe and went on to live the 30 years where he was kidnapped and sent back and escaped.
