    This line is awesome! As someone who moved to China and settled down there years ago, I can relate~
    On a side note, the baddies in this movie are super frightening. The way he says they "are not gonna kill him" is seemingly sincere. What he does not say is that they are going to subject him to gruesome tortures and mutilations under the supervision of a medical professional until his future self gives himself up. The cold logic behind this and the super casual way in which he dismisses the idea is chilling, in retrospect.

    China because they don't buy the diversity crap.

    The "You should go to China" ' line actually creates the disruption in the time line that is the whole point of the movie. Seems like a throw away line, but the entire crux of the movie hinges on it. Without it, nothing else falls into place.

    • Xylarxcode
      Xylarxcode Year ago +4

      Two possibilities, depending on what Jeff Bridges knows about Joe. Either
      A) he doesn't know about Joe meeting his wife in China but tells him to go there because:
      Presumably because in the future timeline of this movie China establishes itself as a dominant world power that thrives more than any part of the world. He was trying to tell Joe to get in there now while it's still possible to get a piece of that action. But Joe is a stubborn dumbass who already made up his mind about where he wants to go and he won't change his mind about France because he's stupid and stubborn.
      Or B) He does know about Joe meeting his wife in China and tells him to go there because:
      From what we can tell of Joe's timeline, Joe went to France but just ended up pissing his money away on the same stupid shit he'd been doing in the US. Nothing really changed for him in France, but once he moved to China he found the woman that would finally turn things around for him and make him truly happy.

      @Justin -- Everyone should know its not the people of any country to blame. Its the Zionist bankers. The Zionist always build up empires then crush their people. And then those countries persecute the regular jewish folk for being associated with the Zionist. Its why the Jews have been ran out of every country for the last 1000 years. The Central Bankers are now trying to crush America and take that economic prosperity to China. The same will happen to China eventually. WHO DO WE OWE THIS DEBT TOO?? Remember, Slave boats were owned by Jewish Zionist. The Dutch merely maintained them for their masters.

    china was chosen cause the film producers wanted to get in chinese
    cinema's, china only allows 34 western films inside, and only if they do
    a few things, like being coproduced with a chinese partner, have 1/3
    cast chinese or another option

      "In the original script, Joe does indeed go
      to France. But budget limitations prevented shooting those scenes on
      location. Rian Johnson, much enamored of Paris, could not bring himself
      to shoot on a backlot or other domestic, stand-in location.
      Looper was co-financed by the Chinese distribution firm DMG
      Entertainment, they offered to pay for location shooting in Shanghai,
      hoping those scenes might help with selling the film to a Chinese
      audience. This seemed to work for Johnson, who updated the script and
      then added the joke to that scene with Abe.

    I always loved how well they did to make him look like a young version of Bruce Willis. you can never get it 100% especially without cgi all they did was prosthetic makeup, I watched the behind the scenes. Joseph also did a bang up job making Bruce's facial features and talking like him. why I loved the movie so much.
