Looper - Grade, Review, Discuss, ect.

Looper comes out tomorrow, so I figured it was close enough to start the review thread. This one looks intriguing and has been getting really good reviews, so I'm hopefully going to see it tomorrow.
In the futuristic action thriller Looper, time travel will be invented - but it will be illegal and only available on the black market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a "looper" - a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) - is waiting to mop up. Joe is getting rich and life is good... until the day the mob decides to "close the loop," sending back Joe's future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination.

Director/Writer: Rian Johnson
Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Joe
Bruce Willis as Old Joe
Emily Blunt as Sara
Paul Dano as Seth
Piper Perabo as Suzie
Noah Sagan as Kid Blue
Jeff Daniels as Abe

Metacritic score: 85/100 (34 positive/0 mixed/ 0 negative)
