    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. On this imaginary Earth, humans have a Day-Glo digital clock on their forearms, clicking off the years, months, days and hours. It's…

    I dunno, I dug its inherent silliness and had a lot of fun with the concept, even though JT doesn't really have the dramatic chops to anchor something like this.

    In a world where people are allowed only to live 25 years, time is a synonym of money, indeed. They trade time with each others, they pay for bills with time, they do everything with money and there's no time to spend with crap.

    But if very have few hours, others few have centuries. There's the myth of the balance again. A little cliché, but it works.

    The important on this movie is the Time Keeper, a person that was designated to keep the balance at any cost, per diem.

    Neat concept that has a lot of room to play with, some left untapped. But the frequent play-on-words about "time" and the awkwardness of all characters, however closesly related, having weird sexual chemistry distract throughout. Good fun though.

    "No one should be immortal if even one person has to die."- Will Salas.

    The ideas within the movie, involving using time as a commodity, are interesting but, unfortunately for this movie, it is all wrapped within a rather silly film that is plagued with inconsistency, plot-holes and downright silliness. (slightly sub par acting to boot)
    Ultimately a film that fails to deliver on an interesting premise.

    Película que ya había visto antes pero sigue sin mejorar. El concepto en si es alucinante, pero toda la película es un quiero y no puedo. Intenta ir de profunda pero los personajes no tienen sentido, cambian de opinion y de vida como el que se cambia de pantalones, esa subtrama profunda no funciona. Para mi lo mejor es el policia, asi que imaginateimaginate. El concepto es genial pero ni justin sabe actuae ni hay nada más allá.

    I swear I'm going to pistol whip the next person who says "time"!

    'In Time' has a cool concept but it doesn't do anything particularly interesting with it ultimately finding itself with a Bonnie and Clyde scenario but not the guts to let the lead protagonists go out blazing - it all kinda just ticks down to the end.

    The aesthetic has a great 1930s retro-futurist vibe (very similar to Gattaca) and the cast are fine, it just needed a…

    The "world" was only half thought out.

    An action/thriller that takes an aim down the uniqueness road in becoming something exciting and clever but it is caught on its own moral ambiguity that it becomes anything but.

    This futuristic Robin Hood like tale falls into the disappointing category. To quote DiCaprio's famous line in Django this film at first had my curiosity, then my attention but by about half way through I became a little bored. Much like my opinion of Dwayne Johnson, Justin Timberlake's acting ability…
