Looper - Trailer
Director Rian JohnsonYear 2012Genre(s) Sci-fi, Fantasy
Joe Simmons is a looper from Kansas City in 2042; a hitman hired to assassinate victims sent to him by a gang of mobsters from thirty years into the future through the outlawed method of time travel. The only rule put to him is that the targets must not escape. One day, on his regular duties, a new victim shows up who happens to be without the customary sack over his head. When he looks up, Joe recognises the man as an older version of himself and his sudden shock gives his future self the opportunity to disarm him and make a break for it. When Joe's criminal employees find out about the escape, they set out to destroy him for his failure. It doesn't take long for him to convince himself that he must kill his future self despite the fact that he is being used in order for the lawless organisation to 'close the loop'.
'Looper' is a brilliantly diverse flick with the complexity to fit it into the sci-fi genre, incredible classic Bruce Willis action and dramatic emotional complications. It is directed and written by Rian Johnson ('The Brothers Bloom') and serves as the second time he and main protagonist Joseph Gordon-Levitt have worked together on a movie after the crime thriller 'Brick'. 'Looper' will be released in on UK screens from September 28th 2012.
