A hired gun from the future discovers that his greatest adversary is himself in this twisting sci-fi mindbender starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and directed by Rian Johnson (Brick, The Brothers Bloom). In the year 2047 time travel has yet to be invented. Thirty years later, however, it has. Though immediately outlawed, time-travel technology is quickly appropriated by the mob, and used to cleanly dispose of anyone deemed a threat. The process is simple: When the mob wants someone to disappear, they simply send them back to the year 2047, where an assassin known as a "looper" quickly carries out the hit, and disposes of the body. Joe Simmons (Gordon-Levitt) is one of the most respected loopers around. Each kill earns him a big payday, and he's got big plans to retire to France. Then, one day, as Joe patiently awaits the appearance of his next target near the edge of a remote corn field, he's shocked to come face-to-face with his future self (Bruce Willis). When the younger Joe hesitates, the older Joe makes a daring escape. Now, in order to avoid the wrath of his underworld boss (Jeff Daniels), young Joe must "close the loop" and kill his older counterpart. Meanwhile, the revelation that a powerful crime boss in the future has set the underworld ablaze pits the two Joes on a violent collision course, with the fate of a devoted mother (Emily Blunt) and her young son hanging in the balance. Paul Dano and Piper Perabo co-star.~Jason Buchanan

Bruce Wills' last good movie, Looper looks great on 4K Blu-ray. A clever script, interesting characters and excellent acting make Looper a movie to definately see.
Willis plays the time travelling future version of the man Joseph Gordon Levitt plays in a younger incarnation. Levitt must track down his future self and stop him from funding and assassinating a future powerful criminal boss while that boss is still a child or suffer the consequences.
I hate giving away spoilers, so I won't say more.
The 4K blu-ray looks surprisingly good for a film unconverted from a 2K master. The addition of HDR is really the game changer here.
It looks dramatically superior to the standard Blu-ray.
One of the best sci-fi's of the 2010's and an excellent 4K transfer. Sony films, regardless of the movie's entertainment quality, puts out some of the best 4K remasters outside of Arrow Video and the Criterion Collection.
Fantastic movie gets a fantastic upgrade to 4K. The 4K resolution alone makes the already very good Blu-Ray look noticeably sharper, but the HDR takes it up another notch. This was probably Bruce Willis' last great flick, and Joseph Gordon Levitt does a good job at imitating Willis.
The new 4K is excellent both in picture quality and sound. It is an upgrade from the already good Blu-ray for sure. I would recommend it if you don't already own it. If you want to upgrade over the Blu-ray I would wait for a sale around $15.00 or lower and it will be a steal for that much.
