The plot: Joe is an assassin or 'looper' in 2044, whose raison d'etre is to gun down hooded targets that have been sent back in time by his mob bosses. Like his fellow loopers, Joe knows his life expectancy is finite and one fateful day, he will "close the loop" by gunning down his future self. When Joe hesitates from his bloody duties and allows Future Joe to escape, the race between hunter and hunted begins in earnest.

what the others say
"This is a hugely satisfying, enjoyable and thought-provoking piece of work."
"Looper isn't perfect, but it pulls off the full Wizard Of Oz: it has a brain, courage and a heart."
"Johnson hauls us through a cat-and-mouse chase, peppered with great dialogue and two showcase performances from Willis and Gordon-Levitt."
