In Time brings a whole new meaning to the saying “time is money”. In this futuristic, action film the world has found a way to be immortal, but there is a catch, you have to have enough time to pay to live forever. At age twenty-five everyone is given a year of time which shows up on their arm with glowing numbers, counting down the person's fate. From that point on, their face will not age nor will their body get old and tired. Everyone is immortal, that is as long as they have enough time.
Instead of money they have time. The more time they have the longer they can live, but if they run out of time they die. There is no dying of old age, the only way to die is to run out of time or die by unnatural causes.
And as always there are the rich and the poor. The rich, that live with thousands of years at their finger tips (or should I say on their arm); living in the fancy cities, the rich control all the wealth. Then there is ones that live literally “day to day” worth of time, living in the ghettos, these people are just trying to survive another day.
Will Salas (Justin Timberlake) is one of the people that only have a day worth of time. He lives watching his clock tick down and is just trying to make enough time to live another day. But when he helps out a guy, that has more than a hundred years worth of time, from being robbed, Will's life is quickly turned upside down. Through this new change he is given the chance to help the ones that need it time the most.
What is My Opinion of the Movie?
The plot of this movie is really what made this movie worth watching. Though it had decent action and good acting, the plot is what made this movie really good. The very concept of In Time is so interesting to me. Because so many people seek immortality, this movie shows just how dangerous living forever can be. My final conclusion for In Time is that it is a definite movie to see.
Is This Movie Family Friendly?
There are a couple of scenes in there that makes this PG-13 movie one that I would not suggest that children nine and under should watch. There is some strong language every so often through it as well, though not a whole lot. I would give this movie a 2 ½ out of 5 for Family Friendliness.
What Would I Rate This Movie?
For the acting, I would give it 3 out of 5
The emotion in this movie I would give a 3 ½ out of 5
And the plot I would give a definite 4 ½ out of 5
All around this movie is a 7 ½ out of 10 in my opinion.
