From visionary director Tim Burton, and based upon the best-selling novel, comes an unforgettable motion picture experience.

Someone like Joe, who one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by transporting back Joe's future self.
Looper was enjoyable enough but I really can't understand all the praise.
Maybe I expected too much of this film, but I was looking forward to a slick piece of speculative sci-fi that was thought- provoking, realistic and fairly deep.
Instead, I got a lazily strung together generic action movie with a splash of time travel and super- powers.
"I don't want to talk time travel sh*t" or something along those lines is commonly used in this film to breeze past any plot holes and presumably stop the narrative become too complex.This irked me as it was one of the main draws in my opinion.I was very frustrated by the little amount of effort that was put in to creating a futuristic society.Forget the realistic near-future depicted spectacularly in films such as Children of Men.This world is more akin to the recent Dredd 3D film. Personally, I would love to have had more information on the state of government etc as the mobs seemed to be running everything but there really isn't any explanation given to this at all.The dynamics of time travel in this film are completely unbelievable. Everyone has pretty much agreed biological evolution is basically over for us and it's all about technical augmentation now.
