Looper is a science fiction film written and directed by Rian Johnson (Brick). It stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Joe Simmons, a ‘looper’ living in Kansas in the year 2044. Loopers are assassins who kill targets sent back in time by criminal organisations from the future, where time travel was invented and then immediately outlawed. Bruce Willis co-stars as Joe’s older self in a mind-bending time travel plot that thoroughly exceeds expectations.
