In the year 2072 when the mob wants someone dead, they are sent back in time 30 years where a well-paid hitman, called a Looper, waits to dispose of them. The one rule is to never let the target escape, but what happens when a Looper’s future self is sent back? It’s an interesting concept with a stellar cast, including Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt, who really drive the film. The creative plot can get confusing early on, but that is quickly forgotten once the action really gets going and it’s refreshing to see Hollywood come up with something unique that will keep audiences guessing.
