Every second counts in this sexy, stylish action-thriller starring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried. In a future where time is literally money and aging stops at 25, the only way to stay alive is to earn, borrow, steal or inherit more time. But when a poor, working-class man (Timberlake) is falsely accused of murder, he teams up with a beautiful heiress (Seyfried) and must figure out a way to bring down the corrupt system before their dwindling life clocks run out!
As a storyteller, Andrew Niccol tends to think big, tackling heady subjects such as genetic predestination (Gattaca), the nature of reality (The Truman Show), and celebrity in the cyber age (S1m0ne). In Time, Niccol's first film since 2005's Lord of War, has a typically gigantic premise--a world where everyone over 25 years old must pay for every continued second of their existence--but stumbles in the execution. While the ideas are exceedingly clever, the telling isn't especially witty. Justin Timberlake stars as a goodhearted but desperate minimum-wager trapped in a society where the rich are essentially immortal and the poor see their lifespan shorten with every purchase. (A cup of coffee costs 4 minutes, taking the bus also takes 30 minutes off of your life, and so on.) After being gifted with a century by a mysterious benefactor, he begins a romance with a beautiful socialite (Amanda Seyfried), whose father holds the key to the entire monetary system. Matters are complicated with the introduction of a relentless time cop (Cillian Murphy) with his own motivations for restoring the unnatural balance of things. Niccol has fun laying out the aspects of a world where even the elderly are genetically frozen at age 25 (the scenes where Timberlake interacts with his mother, played by a disturbingly spry Olivia Wilde, are an unsavory hoot), but has difficulty translating the ingenuity of his concept to a compelling narrative, which rapidly devolves into a mix of uninspired chase scenes and a succession of time-related puns that would have trouble passing muster on a Laffy Taffy wrapper. (The bad guys threaten to clean Timberlake's clock. Repeatedly.) While science fiction aficionados will find much to chew on in Niccol's askew reality, In Time never quite hits the marks that its own ideas suggest. As a film, it's more fun to think about than watch. --Andrew Wright

Overall, it's a fun time, with great performances, but it could have been much more. I give this film a solid B.
Generally the casting is quite solid though somehow I don't put Seyfried and Timberlake together - I wondered if Cillian Murphy might have been better in the lead. The plot raises enough interesting questions between the action set pieces to keep you thinking, though with such a strong concept it could have been a Blade Runner-quality film with a total script revamp. Instead, I found myself reminded of pieces of other films like Bonnie and Clyde and Gattaca.
Still, In Time is better than many films I've seen recently. If you like thought-provoking concepts, you might just forgive the fact it doesn't live up to the promise but does at least deliver an enjoyable ride.
a great sci-fi movie. the plot is unsual, but the story flows smoothly. the characters are very good. the guy from mad men plays the rich overbearing father quite well. sometimes the story gets confused as the characters don't use common sense in protecting each other. but, as the clock winds down, the story gets better. what a better place to showcase the future than the old 4th street bridge area... great movie and characters.
Plainly stated - there are clock numbers on the forearm. These numbers tick off seconds and the remaining numbers indicate the length of time people have left on the earth!
You stop aging at 25 years (so people generally are healthy looking), but you can get more time to live, and possibly forever if you are clever and resourceful (or mean and dastardly).
And so, the story goes on. And the ending is a unique twist on the storyline.
