Story


"Looper" is a time travel movie, set in a near future where time travel doesn't exist but will be invented in a few decades. It's pretty dark in tone, much different from Bloom, and involves a group of killers (called Loopers) who work for a crime syndicate in the future. Their bosses send their targets hogtied and blindfolded back in time to the Loopers, and their job is to simply shoot them in the head and dispose of the body. So the target vanishes from the future and the Loopers dispose of a corpse that doesn't technically exist, a very clean system. Complications set in from there.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the smart time-traveling sci-fi thriller Looper imagines a world just near enough to look familiar, and just futuristic enough to be chillingly askew..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
“..in a genre infamous for loose ends, this thinking man's thriller marshals action, romance and a dose of very dark comedy toward a stunning payoff..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..this is, in short, a smart movie..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
