In the future people stop aging at 25 years of age and have to find a way to pay for more time or they will die in the science fiction action film In Time. Justin Timberlake works, steals and does what ever possible to accrue time for himself and his mother played by Olivia Wilde while living in the poorest zone in the city. After unexpectedly receiving more time then he could ever use he teams up with a young woman played by Amanda Seyfried to begin giving time to the people in the poor zones of the city while robbing from the rich. Science fiction is my favorite genre of films so I was looking forward to this movie. I was skeptical of Justin Timberlake with this type of lead role and I was not wrong with my suspicions. Actually Timberlake didn’t do a bad job but he just doesn’t have that manly action status and I kept expecting him to break out in song. (No Mickey Mouse club songs here) As for the story the premise was great and the pacing kept the audience interested. Unfortunately there was no real tension in the story, the script was underdeveloped and some things just didn’t make sense. (Maybe a little explanation about how people can take time from another person by putting their arm next to another persons arm and turning it over) I’m giving this film that will also run out of time fast at the box office a C rating.
This movie has been given a PG13 rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
