I recently reviewed Sci-Fi thriller In Time for Flick Feast:
This dystopian Sci-Fi thriller could so easily have been a brilliant film. Director Andrew Niccol has solid form with Gattaca, Simone and Lord of War all faring fairly well at the box office. Amanda Seyfried is one of the best up and coming actresses in Hollywood, Cillian Murphy is one of the best actors of his generation and even Justin Timberlake is proving he has the charisma to justify star billing in summer blockbusters. More importantly than all of these factors though is the story. It’s a genuinely intriguing concept at work here. Set in 2161, time has now replaced money as currency and though people now stop ageing at 25, they are required to earn extra time from this point onwards in order to survive. If your personal clock counts down to zero, then you die. It’s a shame therefore that the end product, whilst not by any means terrible, just falls a little flat.
