I went to see In Time tonight, starring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried. The movie plays as a modern day version of Robin Hood of sorts…stealing time (money) from the rich and giving it to the poor. From the trailer I expected a lot of action, and a futuristic sci-fi film, unfortunately though the movie ultimately falls flat. If you aren’t someone who likes a movie that’s overly sci-fi/futuristic, than you can enjoy that element of it, because apart from people literally wearing the amount of time they have left to live on their arms, the movie doesn’t feel very futuristic. It doesn’t necessarily take away from the movie, but it wasn’t what I expected. The end of the movie is left pretty wide open, and although I understand Timberlake’s character, Will’s main mission, I was left asking “what was the point?” of the whole movie. I think the idea has a lot of potential, but that potential wasn’t met. There are some good suspense moments with characters racing their own clocks, but I don’t understand why the world would ever convert it’s currency to time, and I want to know how the technology works, which we never get an explanation of either. I wasn’t bored with the movie, but it’s not one that I would say is a must see…rent it if you really want to see it.
