In Time

Movie Rating: Catharina Steiner

At the end of the 21st century, time is money all over the world. Sci-fi-thriller starring Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried.

Will Salas (Justin Timberlake) has just 24 hours to live. He isn't sick - he's broke. Because in the future, time is the only form of currency, and the poor of course hardly have any. If they don't get more time, they are hit by an electric pulse and die on the spot. Will shares this fate with thousands in the ghetto where he lives, while the rich have hundreds of years at their disposal. When Will manages to get his hands on a century, he decides to infiltrate the rich, and together with Sylvia (Amanda Seyfried), the daughter of the richest man in the world, goes after the Timekeepers to destroy the system from within...

The premise behind In Time is intelligent and provocative, but director Andrew Niccol doesn't manage to hold the audience's attention after the promising first third of the movie. His debut Gattaca was a visionary sci-fi classic that has become a cult film. Which makes it all the more disappointing that In Time turns out to be moralizing and often boring.

Nice choice choosing Amanda and Justin because they are both good - looking actors and they did a great job. There ain't a lot of action but it shows how much "Time" is important in our lives.
