Germany German (Deutsch)

Man befindet sich im Jahre 2040: In der zukünftigen Welt von "Looper" sind Zeitreisen kein Problem. Allerdings sind sie gesetzlich verboten. Nichtsdestotrotz macht sich ein Verbrecher-Syndikat die Technologie zunutze und schickt ihre Auftragskiller in die Vergangenheit, um die unvorbereiteten Zielpersonen dort zu töten und die Spuren in der Vergangenheit auch gleich zu beseitigen. Einer dieser Killer ist Joe. Der junge Mann ist einer der besten seines Fachs, eiskalt und effizient. Auf seinen neuen Auftrag ist er allerdings nicht vorbereitet. Was sich zunächst nach Routine anhört, entpuppt sich als Selbstmordkommando, als er der Zielperson gegenübersteht und feststellt: das Opfer ist sein 30 Jahre älteres Ich. Joe zögert einen kurzen Augenblick. Zu lang! Es beginnt eine Jagd auf Leben und Tod...

France French (Français)

Dans un futur proche, la Mafia a mis au point un système infaillible pour faire disparaître tous les témoins gênants. Elle expédie ses victimes dans le passé, à notre époque, où des tueurs d’un genre nouveau (les «Loopers») les éliminent. Un jour, l’un d’entre eux, Joe, découvre que la victime qu’il doit exécuter n’est autre que… lui-même, avec 30 ans de plus. La machine si bien huilée déraille…

Looper - In fuga dal passato

Kansas 2044. Il viaggio nel tempo non è ancora stato inventato ma trent'anni più avanti è divenuto una realtà di cui però è vietato l'utilizzo. Ovviamente il crimine non si occupa dei divieti e ne fa un uso molto specifico. Un'organizzazione guidata da un capo spietato 'trasferisce' le proprie vittime trent'anni indietro dove un killer (detto 'looper' traducibile in 'uomo che si occupa del cerchio') lo attende per eliminarlo e farne sparire il cadavere. Joe è un looper che risparmia ciò che guadagna in questo mestiere per alimentare il sogno di potersi trasferire in Francia. Ma dal futuro è iniziata una nuova campagna: tutti i looper ancora presenti sul territorio nel 2074 vanno spediti trent'anni indietro perché vengano uccisi. Un giorno Joe si vede arrivare davanti se stesso, con trent'anni in più.
