'In Time' starring Justin Timberlake - trailer review

In Time Directed by: Andrew Niccol Starring: Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy Rating: NR Release Date: October 28, 2011


Thoughts by TSR: In Time is a futuristic thriller about the value of time and the privileges that are afforded the wealthy. I'd honestly feel a little bit better about this one if you didn't have some of the highest paid actors in the entertainment industry preaching about the evils of money... but that's neither here nor there.

The problem with the film is that it all just feels a little too familiar. Part Logan's Run and a little bit Soylent Green when it comes to the evils of "the man," there's just not enough there to really pull me into this one.

Still, I'll buy into it a little on faith. I'm a fan of Amanda Seyfried's TV work and I figure she's got to pick a solid movie role eventually... right? While the involvement of Justin Timberlake gives me a little pause, there's more than enough strong supporting cast to give me hope for this one. But it's a matter of seeing it when I see it. Unlike the characters in the movie, the issue of time isn't a factor for me. I'll probably rent it, at best.
