Looper Movie Quotes

Updated June 8, 2017 168 votes 24 voters 8.6k views8 items

"Looper" movie quotes take viewers on a time-traveling twist through a futuristic world where one assassin is forced to kill off a very personal target, himself from the future. The science-fiction action movie is the latest installment from writer and director Rian Johnson who previously earned acclaim for his debut film "Brick" at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival.

In "Looper," Joseph Gordon-Levitt portrays a 25-year-old Joe Simmons who works as a secret assassin known as a looper in the year 2042. Time travel exists but is outlawed and is only used by criminal organizations for stealth reasons. Loopers intercept people sent back in time from the year 2072 and kill them. It's a pretty simple yet dangerous job and it pays handsomely.

Everything is going well for Joe until his latest target turns out to be himself, 30 years older, from the future. Since old Joe, played by Bruce Willis, knows of his fate, he escapes the execution and instead tries to convince young Joe to go after someone much more powerful. Young Joe is torn between killing his future self and those who control the world, who are already after him too for allowing the target to escape. Jeff Daniels, Emily Blunt, Paul Dano and Piper Perabo all co-star in this sci-fi thriller.

If action movies are your thing, you might also like "End of Watch, "Dredd 3D," "Lawless" and "Resident Evil: Retribution. For something a bit lighter, there are plenty of other great movies that might spark your interest such as "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," "Trouble with the Curve, "The Master," "The Words," and "The Inbetweeners."
