The premise of time being currency, and that for a few to live forever many must die, is amazing. Also, the cast is great. But the film, written and directed by Andrew Niccol, is less than the sum of its parts. It does not explore the world it creates. There are too many heavy ha...

Odd and enjoyable sci-fi thriller, even if somewhat predictable.

"In Time" is a wonderful premise done in by an aimless and weighed down script. The story goes into out-of-the-blue directions that do the premise a major disservice. Perhaps if they had fully focused the story around the "Robin Hood" angle more completely, "In Time" could hav...

Interesting enough. Action filled enough. Halfway decent enough storyline. I think, however, that Justin Timberlake isn't actor enough...Not bad, but not memorable, either.

Take an interesting idea that has a message that fits the Takeover movement like a glove and you should have a film that resonates as well as entertains. In Time does that... to a point, although it comes on a bit heavy handed and the back half resorts to the typical car chase s...

A real surprise. A thrilling, stylish, sexy and daringly original action-thriller. One hell of a wickedly entertaining and exciting movie. One of the most original sci-fi films to hit the screen since The Matrix. Director, Andrew Niccol brings slick direction and vision to this f...

A flat-out disappointing misfire concerning a dystopian system where time is literally money, and how a man from the ghetto (Justin Timberlake) who has nothing to live for strives to live in a world where the poor are given just as much time to live as the rich, who collect time....

Great idea with incredibly dumb execution. In the future, time is currency and everyone stops ageing at 25 for some reason. Timberlake finds himself receiving thousands of years from some guy tired of immortality. He ends up being chased by the cops in charge of time, and by some...

Writer/director Andrew Niccol is no stranger to scientific ideas. In 1997 he delivered the Orwellian genetic engineering "Gattaca". In 2002 he tackled computer generated imagery in "S1mOne". He also penned the predictory script to reality TV in 1998 with "The Truman Show". Fantas...

"The truth is, for a few to be immortal, many must die."
In Time is a decent action movie, but nothing more. It's enjoyable for an afternoon, but never rises above disposable entertainment.
The cast is likable. Timberlake and Seyfried have good chemistry, even though Timberlak...
