In Time

"In a nearer future where people are immortalized and uses time as a currency to stay alive, the economy is split into time zones and people die every second, working to live for one minute one hour. They don't sleep in, you work for your life."-benjaminfoo



Cast: 
Justin Timberlake will forever be a boyband member, he may pull it of in comedic romance film but action flicks are not his thing, his pretty boy look is just not suitable.

In comparison look at Alex Pettyfar who plays the minute men antogonist Fortis, a pretty boy during his Alex rider days, pulling of a mobster look.

Amanda Seyfried was stunningly cute and sexy in the film, and Oliver Wilde was certainly attractive as ever. 

Story:
The concept might not be fresh but it is definitely a unique one, it kinda mirrors how our economy is is always affected and of course reflecting the wall street incident we are having. 

Bringing the concept out into a film would certainly take a lot more effort than usual, you would really want to make this film an unforgettable one but instead the script writers brought to a different direction that involves action over realization.

Using one interesting concept and turn it into an action flick is kinda of a waste.

Execution:
Decent action scenes, I rather like the running and running and running.

It is easy to be sucked into their world but I think they needed more emphasizing on the life clock to add more suspense, there was simply too little hold your breathe moments.

Gibberish:
The sectors are split into timezones, and named after the main cities of time zone borders such as greenwich and livingston.

No offense to Timberlake fans, but someone else would have pulled it off better.

I am an Nsync fan boy btw, he is just more suited for comical pretty roles.
Wrapping it up:
Probably one of the better films this week and next, catch this if you have more den one movie night to spend ^^

Rating: 2.5/5

Watchable rating: 3.5/5
