plot

When Will Salas is falsely accused of murder, he must figure out a way to bring down a system where time is money literally enabling the wealthy to live forever while the poor, like Will, have to beg, borrow, and steal enough minutes to make it through another day.

Verdict

“An extremely interesting premise gets wasted due to its careless treatment. Even actors like Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried couldn’t take this sci-fi thriller beyond a one-time-watch.”

There were two reasons why I was excited about this film. First, it was a high concept film. It has a one line pitch which can make any producer sit up and take notice and the second more exciting part was that one of my favorite DP - Roger Deakins was shooting Digital for the 1st time. nnWhat's it about? - In a futuristic world Time is money and everyone has a set age to live. After a person turns 25 they get one more year to live before their time ends. In order to stay alive they have to keep adding 'time' to their life which is very difficult because in this world the currency is also 'time'. What happens when one day a good guy (Justin Timberlake) gets 100 years as a gift with a note that says “don't waste my time”?nnDoes it work for me? - Yes/NonnWhy? - Andrew Niccol takes a brilliant concept and makes a predictable, clichxe9d Hollywood sci fi thriller out of it. Most of the characters are black and white. Justin Timberlake is like the Hindi film hero who can do no wrong. The sub plot of Amanda Seyfreid adds the much required glamour but fails to add substance in the film. Even Cillian Murphy as the time keeper is wasted in the narrative. He has nothing much to do in the film except chasing Justin. The entire family of Amanda Seyfried looks like they are in the 'Twilight Saga' movies. There is not a single high point in the film but what makes it watchable are the lead pair, a good pace and the cinematography of Roger Deakins. Every time I lost interest in the narrative I admired Deakins work. I may not have the technical know how to discuss his work much in detail but I can assure you he makes anything look good.nnFinal few words: You won't lose your life if you make some time for In Time. nnRating: *** ( Above Average)nnTicket Meter: Worth 150 bucksn
