Looper is a 2012 American science fiction action film written and directed by Rian Johnson. The film stars Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Emily Blunt. In Looper, time travel is invented by the year 2074 and, though immediately outlawed, is used by criminal organizations to send those they want killed into the past where they are killed by “loopers”, assassins paid with silver bars strapped to their targets. Joe, a looper, encounters himself when his older self is sent back in time to be killed.
Looper was selected as the opening film of the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. It was released to positive reviews in Australia on September 27, 2012, and in the US and the UK on September 28, 2012 by TriStar Pictures and Alliance Films.
Our Thoughts: I wanted to see LOOPER so badly I couldn’t wait until Dec 31st for the rental. I purchased the full download, watched it on my 8.9″ HD Kindle Fire and I am very glad I did. Good acting, good plot, solid characters, and a nice twisty ending. This is a really great sci-fi thrill-ride! Highly recommended. — M.R.
