In the futuristic action thriller Looper, time travel will be invented - but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a looper" - a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) - is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good... until the day the mob decides to "close the loop," sending back Joe's future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt,Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels. Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.

Format: DVD
This appears to be a mix of art house and violent action films, a genre which Bruce Willis seems to inhabit comfortably. It is certainly a time travel story, but also a story of character-development, driven by the experiences of both the present (though a slightly in the future dystopian present) and (further in the) future selves of the main character, who meet in the present as part of a cross-time Murder Incorporated operation that goes wrong. Criminal organisations in the far future are sending victims back to the present to be disposed of, having sent an organiser back to set up the organisation in the first place. The assassins – one of whom is our lead character in the present – eventually retire after ‘closing the loop’ by killing their future selves to remove any witnesses to the operation, and get 30 years of retirement funded by their assassination fees. Bruce Willis is the future self of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and has reformed his ways thanks to the love of a good woman he met in his future, and when his time comes to be sent back, overcomes his captors, who have killed his wife, but travels back anyway to try and change the future by killing the man who is organising the killings while he is still a child in the present, having discovered some clues to his identity. He outwits his present self and escapes into the unnamed big city. It has already been established earlier in the film that this is a bad thing, and the criminals know how to track down the escapee by torturing the present-day version of himself, with the injuries transferring to the future self, along with scars spelling out messages.Read more ›

Format: DVD
The idea of being able to change the future by altering events in the past is not a new one and is difficult to portray without the concept of multiple parallel universes and even more difficult to make believable but this film comes pretty close. Most of the action takes place in 2044 where life is not too different from today , apart from levitating motorbikes , and the act of solving difficulties in the future takes place by sending miscreants back from the future to dispose of them in the past - all very good until that miscreant turns out to be your future self. The beginning and end of the film is very good but the middle is a bit unnecessary and laboured but all in all a good effort.

Format: DVD
Looper is a rather odd, uneven movie. It is as if the writer/director had a reasonable idea for a time travel tale, and a half formed idea for a telekinesis film, and decided to shove them together.

The basic concept is that Joe, played by Joseph Gordon Leavitt has been recruited by a mafia boss sent backwards in time by 30 years from 2074 to carry out hits on undesirables, also sent back from the future, where it is seemingly impossible to dispose of the bodies. Eventually, as time travel itself is illegal, the hit-men are required to dispose of their older selves, receiving a pay off in the process which will allow them to live in comfort for the next 30 years. The second element of the story is hinted at by the fact that a proportion of the population is mildly telekinetic.
Joe's troubles begin when he fails to kill his older self, played by Bruce Willis.

The movie falls into three acts, firstly establishing the scenario of young Joe's life, secondly, rapidly telling the thirty year story of how he becomes Bruce Willis, and thirdly the event's after Old Joe's return, which also involve single mother, Emily Blunt, and her young son.

The 2044 in which the film is set is not one in which there has been a great deal of progress, other than the invention of levitating motorbikes. If anything it has a retro-feel reminiscent of Terry Gilliam's Brazil.

It is all well played and Gordon-Leavitt and Willis are convincing in establishing younger and older selves with similar mannerisms.

37 of 43 people found the following review helpful By Mr. R. D. Turner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 13 Mar. 2013
Format: Blu-ray
This film is rated 15 - which is amazing to me. There is a fair bit of violence and an implied torture scene is chilling. There is also bad language from the off and simulated drug taking. So anyone with young teenage kids - please be aware!

That said it is a very decent film. The premise is that time travel has been invented but banned. The only people using it are criminals and they use it selectively to get rid of people. The Looper in the title is a person who carries out an execution when the person is sent back from the future. The science fiction is reasonably well thought out and used well but it serves as a backdrop to a human story.

This film works because we see the protagonist go on a journey and end up changed by the result. The mid section of the film drags a bit but the end scene works very well and I am glad I saw it.

I saw the Blue Ray edition which had good sound and very clear visuals, especially in the outdoor scenes.
