Time-travel exists, but only on the black market for those with money. When the mob wants to eliminate someone, they send the target into the past where a hitman known as a looper waits to finish the job. Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a looper, and he does his job well — until the day his boss decides to close the loop and send Joe’s future self (Bruce Willis) back in time for execution.
As entertaining as Looper is, it is a film plagued with problems—logic specifically. Join us as we breakdown the strength and weaknesses of this cross-genre (sci-fi/mob) movie and its controversial director, Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi). Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys takes you to the not-so-distant future where organized crime goes high-concept.
