Just watched Looper (2012) starring, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (3 Rock from the Sun), Bruce Willis (Die Hard) & Emily Blunt (The Five-Year Engagement).

In the year 2047 time travel has yet to be invented. Thirty years later, however, it has. Though immediately outlawed, time-travel technology is quickly appropriated by the mob, and used to cleanly dispose of anyone deemed a threat.  The process is simple: When the mob wants someone to disappear, they simply send them back to the year 2047, where an assassin known as a “looper” quickly carries out the hit, and disposes of the body. Joe Simmons (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is one of the most respected loopers around.  Each kill earns him a big payday, and he’s got big plans to retire to France. Then, one day, as Joe patiently awaits the appearance of his next target near the edge of a remote corn field, he’s shocked to come face-to-face with his future self (Bruce Willis).  When the younger Joe hesitates, the older Joe makes a daring escape. Now, in order to avoid the wrath of his underworld boss, Abe (Jeff Daniels), young Joe must “close the loop” and kill his older counterpart.  Meanwhile, the revelation that a powerful crime boss in the future has set the underworld ablaze pits the two Joes on a violent collision course, with the fate of a devoted mother Sara, (Emily Blunt) and her young son Cid (Pierce Gagnon) hanging in the balance.

I really liked this film.  I thought the concept was very interesting and they executed quite nicely.  Sometimes time travelling movies can get pretty confusing, this movie explained the story quite effectively.  It was also very interesting how they changed Joseph Gordon-Levitt face to resemble his older counterpart, Bruce Willis.  They didn`t look like twins, but there were some scenes when I was looking at Gordon-Levitt and I was thinking, `hey it`s Bruce Willis`.  Pierce Gagnon did a great job of portraying Cid, the mysterious kid.  He actually brought some fear when he would lose control and erupt with anger.

Overall, I would give this movie 8/10 stars.  Definitely check it out!  Happy Viewings!
