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 (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 (Willis) for assassination.

Looper was produced by Ram Bergman (Brick) and James D. Stern (An Education). It has a run time of approximately 118 minutes and has been rated R for strong violence, language, some sexuality/nudity and drug content.

    @redcameraman I think you should probably just see it and form your own opinion; it's kind of a movie like that.

    @crypt: Yeah, I noticed, but I just hope I'm not disappointed or I'm gonna think it's overhyped. Although I COULD just watch it, not just because Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are really good actors, but because of Emily Blunt since she is not only one of the most talented actresses of all-time, but also really hot as hell.
