Looper - DVD Review
Starring Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels, Paul Dano and Piper Perabo. Directed by Rian Johnson.
JGL does an amusing Bruce Willis impression, and that's just one of the smaller pleasures of this movie. JGL plays Joe, an assassin in 2044 who kills people for the mob in the future. But when his 2074 self is his next target, he hesitates, and Old Joe gets away. Joe needs to catch and kill his old self, or he may not be allowed to live to see 2045.
The movie has several twists and turns, and it's another home-run for Rian Johnson (Brick), who's quickly becoming one of my favorite directors.
