Stars: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt, Jeff Daniels, Paul Dano | Written and Directed by Rian Johnson

After the brilliant Brick and The Brothers Bloom (which I haven’t seen), Rian Johnson’s next is Looper, an action thriller about time travel. It stars Bruce Willis, and reunites Johnson with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, both playing the same character. In the last review I wrote, I complained that so many films these days seemed to be based on already existing material, but Looper is an original story, and its genuinely one of the most thrilling cinema experiences I have had recently.

In 2044, time travel hasn’t been invented, but in 30 years time it will have been, and is immediately made illegal. It is only used by mob bosses who want certain people gone, and so they hire assassins, called Loopers, from the past to kill and dispose of bodies that technically don’t exist. »
