Looper by Rian Johnson, 2012 (R)

with Joseph Gordon-Levitt (50/50), Bruce Willis (Bandits, Surrogates, RED), Emily Blunt (The Adjustment Bureau, Wild Target, The Five-Year Engagement), Piper Perabo (Imagine Me and You), Paul Dano (Knight and Day, Little Miss Sunshine, There Will Be Blood), Garret Dillahunt (Winter's Bone), Jeff Daniels, Tracie Thoms, Pierce Gagnon

In this sci-fi mindbender, a mob hit man who kills people sent from the future finds himself in a curious predicament when he discovers that one of his targets is his future self, shipped back through time to be whacked.

I didn't have high expectation on this one, but the story is interesting, with an interesting conception of time travel, imagining new rules, a new world. Of course there is always a big bad guy, but at the same time, it is pretty interesting to see how he is portrayed, and the surprises we get along the scenario is entertaining and mind-oriented enough we don't fall into the usual blockbuster. The performance of Gordon-Levitt portraying a younger Bruce Willis is quite convincing, the kid is incredibly freaky, the idea of the close future and further future quite original in their own way of being quite realistic. The only character I really didn't get, since it was sort of overused and not put in context was the role played by Piper Perabo who had to appear at two different moments with no logic at all.
