Cast / crew
In Time (2011)
Everyone is genetically engineered to stop aging at 25 at which point you are given 1 year on your personal clock. When your time runs out, you die. Fortunately, you can earn more time but Will Salas is about to come into a century of time that will change his life. Maybe forever.
While it’s pacy and entertaining enough, this movie is still something of a failure. But it’s the kind of failure I want to watch and see more of. It takes an interesting concept and worthwhile topics and attempts to fold them into an on-the-run thriller but a lack of coherence (getting the plot from kidnapping Weis to Bonnie and Clyde feels like a cludge) and an ineffectiveness at explaining why our heroes actions are to be seen as good (they deliberately cause a global financial crisis – something that wasn’t too well received in the real world in 2008) mean that its welcome ambition isn’t quite realised.
This movie contains a single sexual swear just to make sure it’s a 12a / pg13, adult dialogue and violence and sexuality.
