quietearth [Celluloid 11.10.11] movie news scifi action dystopic

Thanks to some folks who got in some early reviews at a test screening, that answer is NO! Set in a dystopic future where time travel is outlawed, the mob pulls an HG Wells when it wants to whack someone. Basically, they send the contract back in time. No body. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays the younger version of Bruce Willis, but when it's time to "close the loop" on his future self, he can't do it. There's a huge amount of spoilers you can read, so I'll spare you and just say the review over at AICN says that while this is an action/sci-fi flick at first, it's superbly written and veers off into many directions. Although I must say a poor review wouldn't stop me from seeing this considering how brilliant Brick is, it would just lower my expectations. So this is good news. Too bad we have to wait until September, 2012 for a release. Give us a trailer!

Joe (Gordon-Levitt) is a ‘Looper’, one of the best - a hired gun recruited by the mob to do one thing, wait for a target to be sent back in time, make the kill and dispose of the body. He’s getting rich and life is good, until one day the syndicate decides to ‘close the loop’. His future-self (Willis) is sent back for assassination and young Joe can’t pull the trigger..
