In 2072 time travel is only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper” - a hired gun like Joe is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good....until the the day the mob decides to “close the loop” sending back Joe’s future self for assassination.
"Johnson hauls us through a cat-and-mouse chase, peppered with great dialogue and two showcase performances from Willis and Gordon-Levitt, who's nailed the pained look of befuddlement, the mannered slouch in the walk, that made Willis a star." Henry Barnes Guardian UK
"[Rian Johnson's] grandly conceived, impressively mounted third feature shows a giddy, geeky interest in science-fiction, then forces it into the back seat and lets the multidimensional characters drive."
Peter Debruge Variety
"Thoughtful, intimate, and deeply moving, writer-director Rian Johnson's assured and perfectly-measured third feature is one of the best films of the year. " Todd Giilchrist Celebuzz
