This movie premise could have been novel and entertaining. Time travelling enables gangs to hire assassins from the past to murder their victims. It seems quick easy and yes lucrative. The twist comes when we learn that the executioners are themselves eventually executed. When an executioner finds his future self on his killing field he hesitates just long enough to allow him to escape and must persue and finish the job. What I find patently offensive in this movie is that it justifies and glorifies suicide to solve the problem presented. It is a very violent film.

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. The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels.
