LOOPER (15)

Director: Rian Johnson. Starring: Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt. USA 2012. 118 mins.

Ever since BACK TO THE FUTURE we have been waiting for another top-notch time-travel movie, and this is it. In the 2070s, anyone displeasing the Mafia  – yes, they are still around and still nasty – is sent back to the 2040s, where an assassin known as a Looper is hired to dispose of them as their younger selves, with suitably minimal consequences.  Joseph Simmons (Gordon-Levitt) is one such hitman, but when his next target turns out to be his older self (Willis, having a ball), who then escapes his murderous intent, he is soon fearing for his own life, and that makes two of them fleeing a very angry Mob. BRICK and THE BROTHERS BLOOM proved Rian Johnson a writer/director of considerable wit and imagination, which with LOOPER he elevates, quite literally, to a whole new and very stylish world.
