Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Looop Lapeta is an Indian action-comedy remake of Run Lola Run (1998). Following the same story structure and narration devices of the original, this new version also features many of the same concepts, as a young woman replays a small period of time over and over in order to save the one she loves. This remake is decidedly more comedic in nature, even while the violence remains bloody. A woman almost attempts suicide, gunfights break out, men fistfight, and people get shot, punched, slapped, pistol whipped, and robbed. Adults, including the main character, snort powder, smoke weed, take pills, get high, drink alcohol, and smoke cigarettes. Strong language includes "f--k," "s--t," "goddammit," "ass," "damn," "hell," and "God." Some references to sex, pornography.

Is It Any Good?
This action-comedy at times strikes an odd balance of slapstick humor with serious violence. Also, Looop Lapeta is very long. While the original movie that this Indian remake is based on (Run Lola Run) runs a quick 80 minutes long, this remake is well over two hours. The other major difference from the original is the decision to combine comedy with the action, but whether this proves to be successful will largely depend on the viewer's ability to ignore the life-or-death stakes that face the main characters.
The movie also takes way too much time setting up the first "run," so to speak. An entire hour is devoted to showing all the ways that Savi's boyfriend, Satya, can mess up, following his stupid decision after stupid decision to the point that many viewers won't care anymore about what happens to these characters. Either way, by the time Savi gets to start replaying the same time loop over, most viewers will already be looking for the ending, knowing that one or two runs through the time loop still have to happen before the film gets there. And, sadly, nothing surprising or creative happens by the time all Savi's runs are completed.
