'Looper' -- 3 stars

R; 1:58 running time Set in Kansas in 2044, the urbanscape in "Looper" resembles a grungy, brutal Oz surrounded by soothingly retro farm country. In this future, time-travel hasn't yet been discovered, but 30 years later, by the 2070s, it has, and it's in the illegal hands of the gangster underworld. To snuff out an adversary, poof: Send him back to 2044 with a bag on his head, and there, standing at the ready with a nasty rifle called the "Blunderbuss," is the "looper," the gun for hire. -- Michael PhillipsRead the full "Looper" movie review
