Spoiler discussion and stuff.....
First, why would you send the guy back alive to be killed by the Looper. They had no problem killing people in the future(they killed Joe's wife) so why didn't they just kill them and then throw them in the time machine. Then the Loopers are just disposal men. No problem with any of the guys they sent back running away.
They explained this in the movie, apparently the bodies were easily tracked with the future technology, perhaps everyone has tracking chips at that point? Clearly the wife was an accident, but given that all the guys that killed her died there wouldn't be any backlash anyway.
Second, why the heck would they send a guy to his own Looper. Send him to another Looper. They shouldn't have any problem killing them.
Truth here, but then that would get rid of the story.
Third, why send them back 30 years to be killed. Just send them back a million years and let them die way back in time. It's not like they can procreate a million years ago. Or see my first problem just send them back dead a million years. That would take care of the body.
Really dude, Butterfly effect or whatever horrible time travel situation you want to think of here. Sending someone that far back could screw the entire future in so many ways. Sending someone back 30 years makes it nice and neat since you can ensure they are killed, particularly since they had Abe to ensure things went smoothly.
Anyway, movie was pretty much outstanding. I'm going to have to watch Brick now.
