Bruce Gordon-Levitt

Looper is set in the future time of 2044, where people have telekinesis and time travel is used to off people from the future. These people are the titular loopers who must kill their target no matter what. While Looper does have an interesting sci-fi premise, it wasn’t what first drew me to the movie. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, the primary looper and Bruce Willis plays Old Joe, whom Young Joe has to kill or face repercussions. But Old Joe is seeking revenge and on a mission to kill a child who becomes a future criminal named the Rainmaker. It’s a time travel movie so expect to be confused from time to time. Like I said, that wasn’t what drew me to the movie. It was the fact that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis were playing the same character even though they look nothing alike. Although this isn’t the first time an old and young actor didn’t match up well. It’s not a problem since both actors do a good job. Emily Blunt is also really good in her role. Looper was also written and directed by Rian Johnson. Who at the time, seemed to do no wrong as a sci-fi director. Looper is filled with action and it’s thought provoking at the same time.
