Looper (Blu-ray release 2012-12-31) has a more aggressive time travel plot than usual.  It involves an assassin trying to kill his older self (through time travel) because of his job contract.  I love time travel movies, so I’m pleased to watch it.  However, even after accepting its basic premise, which does not make a lot of sense, there are still problems with the story, and the way it is presented makes it slightly more confusing than necessary.  We have Bruce Willis in this movie, so it ought to have far grander and more exciting action sequences than the weak stuff it does.  Nevertheless, I like its ending – it upheld the essence of the movie, is smart, and is politically correct.
