Sci-Fi in the 80's hasn't looked so good!

Though I was a kid when "Looker" came out. You gotta absorb yourself into the world of science fiction(sci-fi). Albert Finney("Annie", "Shoot The Moon"),Susan Dey("The Partridge Family", "LA Law"),James Coburn, Dorian Harewood, and others make of a very fine cast of characters in the movie. Despite the nudity, this movie was well handedly made. Finney played a plastic surgeon whose patients die of under mysterious circumstances. The first victim looked hot in her black bra and panty, who needed that robe? Then a man named Reston(Coburn) who runs a shady corporation who uses TV as his weapon of choice. And that gun of theirs, it's unbelievable. Why need bullets to kill, when you can use a special light to cause disorientation. That will make regular drugs, obsolete. This movie looked liked a drama at first, but when I watched some more, it was much more interesting. This is one 80's sci-fi film I really enjoyed. It was well made , and as the British say, "It's a real Right-LOOKER!" 5 STARS.

Watchable, but a bit on the tame side...

I stumbled upon the 1981 movie "Looker" here in 2021. And yeah, I had never even heard about the movie prior to getting to sit down and watch it.

And not being familiar with this movie, I didn't really have much of any expectations to writer and director Michael Crichton with this 1981 movie. And taking the movie's age into consideration, I wasn't really boasting much of any hopes either.

But I will say that "Looker" was an adequately entertaining movie. The concept was interesting, although it felt like the storyline was lacking something. As the movie came to an end, I must admit that I wasn't left with a feeling of this being a movie that I will ever return to watch a second time.

The movie actually holds up even in 2021, as there was something quirky and charming to the special effects with the computers.

They had an adequate cast for the movie, and I was surprised to see Susan Dey and James Coburn in this movie.

Ultimately, then "Looker" was a watchable enough movie, though hardly an outstanding movie. I am rating it a mediocre five out of ten stars.

no surprise that we've gotten this obsessed with perfection

From what I saw in "Looker", it appears that plastic face-lift obsession was already quite noticeable in the early '80s. They had no idea back then how far it would eventually go. But aside from that, it's still a really good movie. Albert Finney plays a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon whose clients start dying in rather gruesome ways. So when one particular young woman (Susan Dey) comes in for an operation, he decides to keep her within his sight and finds out about some slimy deeds.

As this is a Michael Crichton story, it of course has the problem of portraying a successful middle-aged man in love with a beautiful woman half his age. But as long as we understand that, it's a very enjoyable movie. James Coburn plays the perfect kind of CEO role: he looks like a nice elderly man, but what's he hiding? Since I don't know "The Partridge Family" - and don't really have any ambition to know it - I'll just remember Susan Dey for her role here...especially that scanning scene! All in all, definitely worth seeing. That one model at the beginning was definitely setting herself up, given how she walked around in her underclothes (and those pink walls were really obnoxious).
