Looper (2012)

This action, sci-fi, thriller was very entertaining.  “In 2072 when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent 30 years into the past, where a hired gun awaits. Someone like Joe, who one day learns the mob wants to ‘close the loop’ by transporting back Joe’s future self.”  “In the year 2042, a man working for a group of killers called “Loopers” (they work for the mob and kill people who are sent blindfolded back in time from the year 2072 by their bosses) recognizes a victim as himself. He hesitates resulting in the escape of his older self.”  In this movie the younger Joe is played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the older Joe is played by Bruce Willis.  There was a lot of action and violence in this movie and it was cool to see what the future was like as envisioned by the writer/ director Rian Johnson.
