My Review: In Time

This movie takes place in a future where you don't age past 25 and you are only engineered to live to 26 unless you can afford to live longer. In this future time is money, literally. Instead of using currency, you spend time. For example, to take the bus you have to spend two hours. This plays a lot in the language of this movie. Like if you're from a wealthy family, you come "from time" and the police are called "time keepers." So, the rich can live forever and the poor die young. In fact, the cost of living keeps getting raised in this film, making sure that the poor die. So Will Salas, played by Justin Timberlake, along with his hostage turned accomplice, played by Amanda Seyfried, plan to put a stop to this by going Robin Hood and taking time from the rich to give to the poor. I thought that this was a pretty entertaining movie. Some of the cast members were obviously over the age of 25 (Cillian Murphy, Johnny Galecki, Vincent Kartheiser), but I'll forgive that. Although it was entertaining, I really don't think that the story was that interesting. I feel like they could have done more with it. My rating: 7/10
