In a future where time travel has been invented and outlawed, it is used solely by a criminal organisation who use it to "disappear" undesirables into the past where they are disposed of by hired killers called "loopers". I was very much looking forward to Rian Johnson's foray in...

It is rare that I go into a movie with high hopes and walk out with my expectations exceeded. This movie is action-packed, smart, and intense. The plot is incredibly intriguing, providing the most interesting take on gangsters I have ever seen. The film is dark and bold, and leav...
