Looks like the future is about the 99%. “In Time” is the story of how technology found a way to suppress the aging gene and, for a price, anyone has the right to pursue the American Dream, immortality. Wait a minute, did I get that right?
Justin Timberlake stars as a guy whose time is running out. People get a free ride until age 25, and then their personal countdown clock begins to tick down from a year, literally (see photo below).
A mysterious millionaire with a lot of time on his hands (arm) gasses up Timberlake, giving him the chance to crossover into the land of the 1% to see how the other “half” lives. He’s accused of murder and goes on the run with his new girlfriend (kidnap victim).
Amanda Seyfried and Cillian Murphy co-star is this average sci-fi thriller, now available on Blu-ray and DVD.
Nothing remarkable about this futuristic adventure that reminds me a bit of “Logan’s Run.” Grade: D+
