In a future where people stop aging at 25, but are engineered to live only one more year, having the means to buy your way out of the situation is a shot at immortal youth. Here, Will Salas finds himself accused of murder and on the run with a hostage – a connection that becomes an important part of the way against the system.
“In the world of u0026quot;In Timeu0026quot;, time is money. Literally. Set in a future where everybody ages until 25, then they have one year left to live, except that one year is currency. The rich can live at age 25 eternally and the poor donu0026#39;t always have a chance to live. Time zones are classes of wealth and you canu0026#39;t cross over without upsetting the order of the world. Itu0026#39;s quite possible that they have taken this time is money equation too far.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eBut I enjoyed this twist on the same old action movie. It even starts with some thoughts on philosophy. A rich boy finds himself in a poor manu0026#39;s bar where everybody wants a piece of him, so much so that his considerable wealth and time line are in danger. While the poor are in constant need of money, it turns out that the rich donu0026#39;t have the same drives for life. This rich guy is impressed by Willu0026#39;s (Justin Timberlake) honesty and earnest desire to find out how the other side lives. Will is then faced with the possibility of an infinite life time of money.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFrom there, we get a Robin Hood action movie. Will pairs up with a daddyu0026#39;s girl vixen, Sylvia (Amanda Seyfried) and they are on the run from the time keepers (Cillian Murphy). I have enjoyed Timberlakeu0026#39;s recent foray into the world of movie stars, but I like him more as a comedic straight man than as an action hero. Seyfried, on the other hand, proves that she can play pretty much anything. A mysteriously innocent, sharp-shooting, sexy action girl suits her well.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe logic that this new world presents is pretty easy to figure out, but as you are doing that at least you are distracted from the usual action movie set-up. Hollywood has ventured again into the science fiction romance genre, and has again come out with an intelligent, action-packed film with something for everyone.”
