In Rian Johnsonís sci-fi action thriller 'Looper', time travel doesnít exist yet, but in 30 years it will.
Time travel will be instantly outlawed and used only by the most criminal organisations. When they want someone gone, they will zap him back in time to a specialised assassin like Joe (Joseph Gordon Levitt) called a Looper. So the guy will disappear from the future and the 'Looper' will dispose of a body that technically does not exist yet. Simple and clean. Except when the target, is your future self (Bruce Willis).
Contains strong language and bloody violence.

Although the story flow was cool, the detailed cognition of how a human mind can be manipulated and/or convinced and Joseph played hell-of-a character as Bruce junior, it had several loop holes such as it was never clear how Emily knew about the loopers (unless I missed something)... The unnecessary romance between the lead characters... Shallow obligations of vengeance...
Everything was however compensated by the ending of the movie which was quite surprising... And somehow again reminded me of 12 monkeys and why I liked it so much...
One of the best Films this year.
It's and Intelligent, smart, often darkly funny sci-fi thriller marked by Great performances in particular JGL who pulls of a young Bruce Willis with great maturity.
Do not expect an action flick this is a character study film that plays on emotion & tough profound choices.
