Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a looper by profession. A looper is a hired hit man who eliminates those the mob no longer wants alive. The mob sends the victim 30 years into the past to meet in front of loopers like Joe waiting to shoot to kill. One day, Joe’s victim turns out to be his future self (played by Bruce Willis). Will present Joe kill his future self? What will happen if he doesn’t? If he does, will he disappear?
From the first trailer, I was super excited to see this film. I love love and love Bruce as an actor because of his tough guy/comedy one liner characters. My expectations did not fail me. This movie was original and awesome. The action mixed with suspense had my pulse rising. Although I liked watching Joseph and Bruce work together, I enjoyed watching Emily Blunt (plays Sara) and Pierce Gagnon (plays Cid, Sara’s son). The story starts off with the young Joe deciding whether or not to kill future Joe but progresses into another amazing story with Sara and Cid. The best actor of this film was little Pierce. He was aggressive yet innocent. He was mysterious yet outspoken and independent. I can’t go on without giving away spoilers but the ending was fantastic and worthy. All in all, I will buy this film on Blu Ray/ DVD.
Rating: 4 stars
