In 2074, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent 30 years into the past, where a hired gun awaits. Someone like Joe, who one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by transporting back Joe's future self.
This is a good time travel movie featuring a young assassin/Looper (Levitt who had his appearance altered to look more like a young Willis, freaked me out for a while until I realised) and his older self (Willis, still doing quality work) and their paths cross when the Looper tries to kill his older self but his older self is having none of it and has come back in time to stop a future killer by killing the killer's younger self.
It's a story of the future and past clashing and knowing what's going to happen but still not being able to stop it and the end can only go one way, it's a movie that has you thinking a lot about what will happen, who the target is and what both Loopers will do to change or keep the future the same, good performances from everyone including Emily Blunt and Jeff Daniels but the kid Cid (Pierce Gagnon) was a great find and has a great future in the industry.
Good story, good performances, good action (not a lot of it but that was fine with me for once), well worth a watch!
