Movie Review - Looper

After we saw Atlas Shrugged Part II it was on to Looper, in which future murder victims are sent back in time to be executed by "loopers." Why that name? Well, their final victim is their thirty-year-older self, at which time they retire and have thirty years to enjoy their pay before they are sent back int time to be executed by...well, you get the picture. The film doesn't dwell much on the technology and time-travel babble (fortunately, given the preposterous nature of the premise) and focuses on personalities and relationships instead, which makes for a pretty good film. Bruce Willis does eventually get his yippee-kai-yay moment, and the ending was a surprise. Worth seeing.
