Looper

Hunted by your future. Haunted by your past.


Looper
This well-rated time travel crime thriller alternates between America 30 years and 60 years from now. Time travel had been invented and promptly outlawed, meaning only criminals used it. They used the technology for getting rid of people... they'd send the executioner and the victim back in time, and after the murder, bring the executioner back. One day, however, the killer found his victim was his old self, and he did not complete the job. The two men then got to know each other, leading to a very complicated situation when romance entered the picture. This lead to difficult and far-reaching decisions which would affect the future for several people, including themselves.

118 minutes.
No persons under 16 (Language, Nudity, Violence).

C. Fuchs quote iconWhile there are problems aplenty with the logic (or lack thereof) of the plot's various elements and devices, I still managed to be caught up in the characters and the story as they played out, and enjoyed the various little twists, touches and moments of creativity even if they don't stand up to the scrutiny of hindsight.
