    Synopsis


    In Time
    When scientists unlock the secret to immortality, time becomes the new currency and one desperate man comes under attack from a mysterious group known only as the "Time Keepers." In the not-too-distant future, scientists have discovered a way to turn off the aging gene. As the threat of overpopulation looms over society, money becomes a thing of the past. Now, assets are measured in time; those with the most time also possess the most power. Meanwhile, the lower classes are forced to barter with the new elite if they want to live forever. Suddenly a young commoner stumbles across a treasure chest of time. With the "Time Keepers" in hot pursuit, however, he may never get a chance to use it. Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, and Olivia Wilde star in this sci-fi thriller from writer/director Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, Lord of War). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Great idea, mediocre execution

      Everyone is on a clock. What keeps the general population from devolving into id-driven mobs is the fact that no one knows how much time they have left on theirs. If you had a constant reminder on your forearm, however, you might simply go about your life in a desperate attempt to prolong it. Or not. Will Salas (played by Justin Timberlake) is a 28-year-old factory worker whose one year clock started and aging stopped, like everyone else in the film, when he turned 25. He and his 50 year-old mother Rachel (played by Olivia Wilde) live in the ghettos of Dayton hoping to earn and save enough to at least see the next day. All while wages in the ghetto are constantly going down and the cost of living is constantly going up. Then, while out drinking with his friend Borel (played by Johnny Galecki), he learns of a man with more than a century left on his clock who has unadvisedly advertised his good fortune while in the same bar as Will and Borel. A local time-thief enters the picture and, rather than retreat like his friend did and advised him to do, Will comes to the aid of the fortunate stranger. While saving his life was all for naught, the stranger gives Will all the time left on his clock before allowing the time on his own clock to run out while he’s sitting on a bridge overlooking a dry river basin. “Time is money” was a phrase first coined by Benjamin Franklin. While the idea of reversing that concept to “money is time” is interesting, I don’t believe the cast was up to the challenge of exploring it. Whatever success Justin Timberlake might’ve had in supporting roles, he doesn’t have what it takes to be the leading man. Amanda Seyfried, whose role has her playing off Timberlake for a lot of the film, is another professional whose appeal tends to overshadow her abilities for some reason. Perhaps an independent production could provide actors with genuine talent, who are young enough to look the part, but this is closer some sort of CW melodrama.

      The director, Andrew Niccol, took the idea of "time is money" to create a world where the Top 1% can pretty much live forever, while the Poor try to scrape by on hours a day, and die out as prices are raised. He uses the "Bonnie and Clyde" idea for his actors, Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried. The idea of Robin Hood comes to mind...take from the rich, and give to the poor. The ending was the only thing I was disappointed with, but in a movie like this, it's a 50/50 choice...either the good guys die, or the bad guys do. Overall, I think the DVD was worth the money I spent.

      Interesting "Time" concept movie

      In Time was an intriguing sci-fi movie about a future society in which time is the currency vs. paper money for everything. I think this movie could really have been a little better, maybe with a bigger budget or more something. One of the deleted scenes gives you much more info on the main character's father, which I think should have been kept in the final film, as it enhanced the story. The film has good action, with a pretty good story and some nice thought provoking parts. Got this for $4.99 on blu ray, so it was a darn good deal.

      I had seen this movie a few years back and Grabbed it when I seen it in the DVD bend. It is futuristic with the theme that people can live young lives forever with the payment of time instead of money or you can die at any time without any time allotment left. Justin Timberlake is from the poor side of town and meets a girl whose Dad has more time than he can ever spend and a his daughter is kept safe which is boring until she meets Justin. Lots of excitement and thrills ensue with lots of twists and surprises.

      Classic case of wasted potential

      Phillip K. Dick is the father of so many of these mind-bending style plots and many of his stories have been converted to the screen successfully. This, while not a Phillip K. Dick concept, is cut form the same cloth and while the idea is very strong, the presentation is very lacking. Plagued with a mid-grade cast and recycled set, prop and costume designs from other similar sci-fi efforts, it falls short of the mark. You can see where they were going from there, but you'll still be disappointed that this modern day Robin Hood story wasn't given the attentions it deserved.

      I have been thinking about trying this one for a while. I miss it at the theater when it first came out. After watching it I thought it came across as Logan's run meets Robin Hood. I'm really more of a fan of Justin and Amanda. I am also a big science fiction fan though this isn't an original idea it was still very enjoyable. It is not a great movie but it's somewhere between good and very good.

      Amanda and JT do a very good job in this sci fi movie. The plot is very interesting where in the future, your lifespan depends on how much "time" you have. You can buy time at different stores or borrow It at the bank, gamble to win more time or just steal it. This movie follows the main characters as they try to find a way to get rid of the whole "time as currency" system and eventually end up breaking the law.

      Logan's Run 2.0

      I've seen this before... Logan's Run was the first movie to have a plot of conflict with fighting the system. And to be thrust together with a strange girl fighting the system is the same as Logan's Run. Some of the plot and goal are a bit tweaked, but it was the same. The end of the movie has the same type of impact to the system, overall change from the norm. At least Logan's Run it out on HD (Blu-Ray is an HD format).
