Summary: When Will Salas is falsely accused of murder, he must figure out a way to bring down a system where time is money - literally - enabling the wealthy to live forever while the poor, like Will, have to beg, borrow, and steal enough minutes to make it through another day. Justin Timberlake isn't that bad as a actor that I thought he was, I mean he is actually a fine actor and he did okay here. The movie wasn't that good but it's not terrible.
Excerpt: In Time is basically Elysium before Elysium came out; but a whole lot worse. Hollywood seems to like these social-injustice-metaphor movies a lot, but they never turn out right. Avatar was boring, Elysium was worse and District 9 was annoying. Politically charged movies like this end up getting so tied up in their message that they forget to tell a good story. In Time is no exception, and may be the worst of this trend.
Excerpt: The premise is damnably intriguing. Written and directed by Andrew Niccol, maker of such original sci-fi movies as "Gattaca" (1997) and "S1mOne" (2002), it involves once again people whose lives depend on an overarching technology. In this case, they can buy, sell and gamble with the remaining years they have to live. The market in time is everywhere.
Summary: This is a movie I will think about every once and a while and I believe it has the potential to become a cult classic. The concept of using time for currency is thought provoking. Yes, there is an underlying point about the rich living above their needs while the poor die, but they also show the poor stealing from each other, drinking themselves to death, and living with large and excessive debt.
Summary: I am shocked by people's displeasure with this movie. It was such a creative setting and plot. You can relate the plight of the lower-class of our society to that set in the movie; some people might even say it is a poltical-commentary on the pitfalls of capitalism.. The acting wasn't great but it wasn't atrocious as some people seem to think. Very fun ride of a movie.
Summary: Timberlake takes a huge step back. Olivia Wilde is pointless, and Cillian Murphy looks like he had plastic surgery. Still, it is a sci fi movie that does a decent job of telling an unoriginal story. Nothing more than average but for some reason I watched it all.
Summary: I finished the movie and I think it with a smile: it was horrible.honest! I really think that the actors themselves do not watch what they've done. one cannot forget when Timberlake ru(i)ns to save his mother or lover, witch, in the beggining it's very confuse. Now, if I was living in such a scenario, I would not want to get Time for nothing in the world. Short: this movie is just plain stupid.
Excerpt: SPOILERS AHEAD -- THIS IS NOT REALLY A REVIEW, MORE A RANT... The movie is entertaining, fast-paced, interesting...if you can accept the premise - time as money - which I couldn't. What would be the point of the value system depending on the time and the life living like that, when your hand is practically a wallet easily robbed.
