Movie:In Time

Director: Andrew Niccol
Actors: Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried and Cillian Murphy
MPAA rating: PG 13
Running time: 109 mins
Tagline: Time is Money

Welcome to a world where time has become the ultimate currency. You stop aging at 25, but there's a catch: you're genetically-engineered to live only one more year, unless you can buy your way out of it. The rich "earn" decades at a time (remaining at age 25), becoming essentially immortal, while the rest beg, borrow or steal enough hours to make it through the day. When a man from the wrong side of the tracks is falsely accused of murder, he is forced to go on the run with a beautiful hostage. Living minute to minute, the duo's love becomes a powerful tool in their war against the system.

I picked this movie because Preview looked interesting

What I liked the Most? the concept behind

What I liked the Least? everything else

Review: Hmmm, stop aging at 25 then buy every other moment, plus you use your time to purchase EVERYTHING. Sounds like a truly spectacular concept. Those rich in “money” at the switch over point are now rich in “time”, and the poor are barely scraping by. So as a concept – totally rocking.

In action, it was a major let down. Good guy from the wrong side of the tracks, Will, is given a century by some dude that has lived too long with the message “Don’t waste my time”. And then the movie goes down hill. I did however enjoy the way you could tell Will was from a different Time Zone by the way he moved, always doing things just a little faster than every one else in Richtown.

Best Quote: We're not meant to live like this. We're not meant to live forever. Although I do wonder, Father, if you've ever lived a day in your life.
