The script originally called for Joe to move to Paris when he got older, hence why he tries to learn French. However, Rian Johnson realized they didn't have the money to shoot in Paris. The story was changed so that he goes to Shanghai because the Chinese distributor for the film offered to pay for the crew to film there. Johnson accepted because his best alternative to set the scenes in Paris was to shoot them in New Orleans, which he didn't want to do, and because he felt Shanghai better reflected the future setting of the movie.

No Spoilers will be shown, the story is basically the public knowledge shown on the trailers.
The story is about this man named Joe who is played by both Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis. Basically his job is a looper. In the Year 2074 civilization has created time travel however it is highly illegal to use it. It is then controlled by the highest criminal mafia in the world. In the future they cannot kill a person, so instead they send them back 30 years and the looper will kill them. When the young Joe saw the Old Joe standing there, he hesitated and the plot clashed.
The story was very confusing at first, but the movie does a good job to explain to us as it goes along. To be honest at first I thought this was going to be bad, the story took some time to build up, and the plot just didn't seem to have any structure. Once the movie did pick up, boy did it pick up. It became intense as the hunter became the hunted.
The story had emotion, action, we laughed and cried. Many places where things appeared to be stupid ended actually be part of the story and working out. There are though, a lot of silly moments in the story that to my opinion could have been left out and the story would have been just as good. The acting was very good. Also kinda shows how much Bruce Willis is getting old, but can still pack a punch. I give this movie an 8.5/10!
