  • A hired gun from the future discovers that his greatest adversary is himself in this twisting sci-fi mindbender starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and directed by Rian Johnson (BRICK, THE BROTHERS BLOOM). In the year 2047 time travel has yet to be invented. Thirty years later, however, it has. Though immediately outlawed, time-travel technology is quickly appropriated by the mob, and used to cleanly dispose of anyone deemed a threat. The process is simple: When the mob wants someone to disappear, they simply send them back to the year 2047, where an assassin known as a "looper" quickly carries out the hit, and disposes of the body. Joe Simmons (Gordon-Levitt) is one of the most respected loopers around. Each kill earns him a big payday, and he's got big plans to retire to France. Then, one day, as Joe patiently awaits the appearance of his next target near the edge of a remote corn field, he's shocked to come face-to-face with his future self (Bruce Willis). When the younger Joe hesitates, the older Joe makes a daring escape. Now, in order to avoid the wrath of his underworld boss (Jeff Daniels), young Joe must "close the loop" and kill his older counterpart. Meanwhile, the revelation that a powerful crime boss in the future has set the underworld ablaze pits the two Joes on a violent collision course, with the fate of a devoted mother (Emily Blunt) and her young son hanging in the balance. Paul Dano and Piper Perabo co-star.

    Total Film

    "[With] pounding action, elegant style, steady-state suspense, marvelous acting and...[and] haunting explorations of youth, age and personal destiny."
    Wall Street Journal

    "This is a highflying, super-stylish science-fiction thriller that brings a fresh approach to mind-bending genre material."
    Los Angeles Times

    5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he coolest, most-confident sci-fi flick since 2006's CHILDREN OF MEN. With its ambitions matching its ability and star clout..."
    Box Office

    "Slamming genre cheap thrills together with high-art aspirations, Mr. Johnson spins a fast-moving entertainment out of a setup that could have been cooked up by the science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick..."
    New York Times

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Rian Johnson's LOOPER, a smart and tricky sci-fi story, sidesteps the paradoxes of time travel by embracing them."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "The smart time-traveling sci-fi thriller LOOPER imagines a world just near enough to look familiar, and just futuristic enough to be chillingly askew." -- Grade: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It's a rip-roaring mind-bender that's dodges the sci-fi-for-dummies approach and hurls us into a world of existential curveballs and long-toss imagination."
    Rolling Stone

    "LOOPER may be a movie powered by time travel, but its emotional fuel is abandonment....[A] clever contraption about trading in your future to feed your present..."
