A man named Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) works as a “looper,” killing people from the future in the past for the mob. One day the mob turns on Joe, sending his future self back in time to be killed. Writing for the Chicago Tribune, Michael Phillips noted, “That first hour cooks. And the second hour brings Emily Blunt into the story, which is a fine thing for any second half to offer.”
