In Time

In Time is a competent action/thriller in the Hollywood mold but coming from director, Andrew Niccol, who also wrote and directed Gattaca and wrote The Truman Show, it is disappointingly light. While Gattaca established its fascinating sci-fi premise and then proceeded to examine its social implications, In Time lays out its entire thesis during its opening narration and then restricts its action to within those bounds. Beyond the first five minutes we learn nothing new about this world that briskly heads for Bonnie and Clyde territory after its Logan's Run type set up.




Outside of the director's prior work, however, the film is enjoyable enough. It's nicely paced at a fine enough clip and there's action and pretty faces aplenty to maintain the audience's interest. Although the time/currency puns are a little overdone, the entertainment quotient is consistently high.

Justin Timberlake has been busy of late, starring in The Social Network, Bad Teacher, Friends with Benefits and now In Time. A couple of these are even respectable films and he delivers respectable performances in them. While he's, by no stretch, a great actor, he's certainly showing himself to be a worthy screen presence. And he's a suitably pretty face to match that of his co-star, Amanda Seyfried. However, in a cast of characters who are not supposed to age past 25 years, Cillian Murphy is clearly too old for his role, even though he is effective in it.

So it has good performances from attractive stars in a briskly paced action flick; there's not really too much to dislike other than what could have been from such a respectable director.
