Sometime in the future, there is a mob that offs their victims by sending them into the past to be shot and disposed of. Joseph Gordon Levitt stars as Joe, a hired gunman who is one of the people that shoot and dispose of these bodies. It's pretty genius on the mob's part, there's no body or evidence that these people are being murdered, because if you send them back in time they don't exist in that time period right? Well, the movie picks up when Joe realizes that his future self has been sent back to be killed by him. I know that this is pretty much what the movie is all about, but wouldn't it make sense to just send his future self back to one of the other hired guns? This is the main thing that I don't understand.
So, when Joe realizes that it's himself that got sent back, he hesitates and the older man (Bruce Willis) gets away with revenge in his eyes. His goal is to kill the kingpin of the loop system before he grows up to become that very kingpin. And that is the rest of the movie. Younger Joe trying to kill older Joe. Along they way younger Joe meets Sara (Emily Blunt) and her son (who is the kingpin in the future) where he may or may not have fallen in love, but still vows to keep her son safe from his older version.
This movie was pretty good overall, it was full of action and science fiction. The actors chosen in this movie did a nice job in their roles. I am going to give this movie an okay since I'm not sure I would watch it again.
