You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
In the not-too-distant future the aging gene has been switched off. To avoid overpopulation, time has become the currency and the way people pay for luxuries and necessities. The rich can live forever, while the rest try to negotiate for their immortality. A poor young man who comes into a fortune of time, though too late to help his mother from dying. He ends up on the run from a corrupt police force known as 'time keepers'.
Right chaps, one hour to write a film. Go.
An hour? What could we do it about? An hour.
Yep, one hour. One h…Oh, 59 minutes, 20 seconds. 19. 18…
Oooh, it's about time!
Brilliant! Quick, time sayings: not enough hours in the day.
Don't waste my time!
Wait, is that about what we're doing now…?
For a few to be immortal, many must die!
No one has to die before their time!
Oooh, just smoosh those together!
We need a star who's name works in…in…in…Justin! Just. In. Time. Get it?
No. Wait. Yes!
Man, this stuff writes itself...
There is a kernel of a great idea here, a genuinely novel distopian world from a writer-director with a good track record of making thought provoking sci-fi with a mass appeal. So the question is, where did it all go wrong?
Budget is clearly a problem as evident by the uninspired sets and some truly terrible CGI. Secondly, whilst the idea of time as currency has potential it is never really explored in any interesting or meaningful way. Instead we get a pretty standard chase movie (with hints of Robin Hood and Bonnie and Clyde) and the usual rich-poor dystopia divide which has been tackled in a thousand other, often better, science-fiction films.
The nature of the story dictates that…
'We're running out of time.'
'Don't waste my time.'
I'm gonna clean your clock.'
'That's quality time'
Something shticky is going on here and it isn't done very well. They don't use the incredibly 'witty' quotes mentioned above once in this film, no, no, they use them every chance they get.
The acting is bad, the story predictable and it is something worse than mediocre, it's dull...which is unforgivable for a sci-fi action flick.
Although its premise could've been executed better and its attempts at social commentary are a bit too heavy-handed, In Time still makes for an enjoyable sci-fi thriller with an engaging story, thought-provoking and imaginative concepts, beautiful cinematography (by none other than Roger Deakins), and strong performances.
I'm pretty sure it was just my imagination, but every time there was some type of pun involving time in this film, I swear I could hear director Andrew Niccol creaming his shorts. Don't ask what that sounds like, but I swear I heard it, and heard it often.
On a side note, since I found this movie rather boring, I spent some time doing math, and converted times as a currency into real Canadian currency. Math is definitely not my strong suit, so bare with me.
In the film, Justin Timberlake uses a pay phone and it costs one minute. The last time I used a pay phone it costs thirty five cents,…
In Time is radical-ish, but not out of any deeper political commitment. It's not a brave film at all; it's purely a zeitgeisty product of its economic climate. This is most noticeable in its relative pacifism, its treatment of the police as social actors worthy of discursive engagement by revolutionary elements.
Yet the film is fun, and competently shot and performed. Even on a rewatch it won me over with its earnest progressive message and the innocent naïveté of its sanitized Bonnie & Clyde (Amanda Seyfried & Justin Timberlake).
Just remember, kids: don't talk to the cops.
- Bastante criativo ao construir uma trama de grande potencial, relacionando tempo ao dinheiro, e como algumas pessoas vivem vidas longas graças ao local e família em que nasceram e outras vivem lutando para viver o dia seguinte. E nesse contexto, como os poderosos lutam para manter sua posição de eternidade, sugando o esforço dos mais pobres. Uma bela crítica social.
- Bela fotografia e direção de arte, criando um mundo atemporal, com estilo de carros, roupas e prédios remetendo a diversas épocas.
- Péssimo roteiro, recheado de diálogos clichês, deslocados e, muitas vezes, vazios de significado, além das piadas fora de hora ("O que vai fazer? - O que tiver que fazer.", "Meu pai morreu…
A film where time is money in an extreme brutal way.
Time on your arm buys you food , a bus ride and so forth. If you have tons of time you're consider to live the rich life or be poor. So you see the separation as well, dystopian or not thats no different now in 2016. Once Will (Justin Timberlake) gets a hold of a century or more worth of time from a guy who doesn't want to live anymore a group of bad guys wants it from him as well as the law. Entering to the rich life of this dystopian world he met Sylvia (Amanda Seyfried) and also brings her along to bring back enough Time to…
Justin timberlake maybe not my number one choice for the roll, not that he's awful, but he just isn't who I would have cast for this.
Saying that however, its well paced, has some good visuals, and as previously mentions a solid Sci-Fi idea.
Also a chromed Jaguar E-Type is a bonus.
Interesting Science Fiction Film which carries a Robin Hood vs. Matrix theme. Check it out for something unusual.
Love that it starred vegan Justin Timberlake.
An amazing What-if?-premise turned into a movie thats mediocre in every aspect. A mediocre hero-plot, planted in a not thoroughly thought through world with lots a plot and logic holes (like, thinking up time zone borders you have to pay months or years for to cross over excpet when you don't have to because of reasons) filled with some mediocre CGI, lots of mediocre acting and some cheesy dialogue.
Ah, and both neither Timberlake nor Murphy look 25 (the year natural aging stops) in this!
Still, at least it wasn't boring.
The concept never reaches it's true potential, but In Time is a mostly satisfying science fiction film that at best is a good distraction.
konusu çok güzel ve özgün lakin geçişler hızlıydı ve akılda birtakım sorular bıraktı ayrıca senaryoda eksiklikler vardı.
bunlara rağmen izlenilmeyecek gibi değildi ve akıp gidiyordu film.
It wasn't a bad movie, and it was interesting, but it wasn't amazing. It just felt like it was missing something.
I liked the plot! Maybe the execution was not so good but the movie has its moments!
