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.

Awesome premise. Husband is very critical with movies, but he loved this. Both of us being very analytical we just couldn't get past the paradoxes shown in this movie due to time travel. A lot of it didn't make sense, and it gave us a lot to laugh and talk about afterwards. BUT, for entertainment value it's pretty spot-on with some amazing action scenes and was a great emotional ride. Would definitely recommend to sci-fi fans and those who just like to think.

Terrific acting and ace casting of these characters, and they made J G-L look incredibly like a young Bruce Willis. Great plot, unpredictable ending (at least to me). Could watch this repeatedly, monthly, and not get bored of it. YMMV. Highly recommended to fans of the action/adventure/sci-fi genre. TIME TRAVEL PARADOX theme featured. Gotta love that!

I wanted to see this in theaters and never got the chance. It's an interesting look at time travel without having to worry about how time travel works. It's confusing when you read about the movie, so it's worth giving a chance even if you aren't sure what's going on the synopsis. Great acting, good concept.

Makes you think of the ripple effect and how we are all related in our actions, knowing or unknowingly. The style reminded me of the Samuel L Jackson and John Travolta movie (cant remember the name). The ending really touched me and got me thinking. Its very much worth seeing.

Writer-director Rian Johnson posits a lot of interesting theories in "Looper" about time travel. Can we change the future or is it predetermined? If we could change the future what is our moral responsibility to do so? Some of the theories don't hold water. Others, if you think too hard, make your head hurt. Regardless, Johnson should be given props for trying something ambitious and engaging his audience in a thought provoking exercise. I gave up looking too hard at this interesting film about halfway through and just enjoyed the ride and I would encourage anybody watching it to do the same.

Looper takes a very convoluted plot and feeds it to the audience one bite at a time, so we won't choke. It is an unpredictable film. The protagonist is at times also the antagonist. There are actions the protagonist takes that are unforgivable. He is not a likable guy. Bruce Willis does not come along to save the day.

Looper is slow at first. This perhaps follows a new tradition of not introducing main characters until the movie is almost half-over. Characters I expected to see in the second half were not there at all, and the action did not pick up until the last twenty minutes or so. By then, my eyes were glued to the screen.

The movie has an important message about selfishness and selflessness.

Could have found a good old time movie for 5 dollars or less at big lots that would have been just as good to watch the wife likes shootem up movies and she thought it was so bad she fell asleep. special effects if that is what you want to call it was poor and unrealistic or just hard to believe. The so called time travel chamber seem to be just a big pot with nothing to control it just step in and go. well dont want to tell you the movie but it will fill in the time when there is nothing but reruns on...

Flashback sequences didn't always make sense as to why they were necessary. They rather looped themselves. Fair acting, Willis does not impress and Gordon-Levitt's make-up distorted his otherwise charming looks.
