In Time

Hollywood is out of fresh, new ideas when it comes to originality. Concept is one of the vital part of a movie that would make its viewers interested with the movie. Inception was the last movie which I consider to be fresh. In Time is fresh but somehow there are some plots that seem to be vaguely familiar.

The movie stars Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried. Set in the near future where everyone is 25 years old forever. Once a person reaches his/her 25th birthday, a biological clock turns on which contains a year amount of time. Once the clock reaches to zero, the person dies. However, time can be bought thus prolonging a man's life. Time can also be acquired through work and has become a mode of payment for all the necessities, therefore it determines your financial status as well.

Justin, in this movie, is framed from a murder in which he did not commit. Seyfried is the daughter of one of the wealthiest man, having the possession of 1 million years in his vault, he is almost immortal. Seyfried robs his father and becomes the modern Robin Hood together with Timberlake.

The plot is simple and so easy to follow, the movie also seemed to have the feel of Robin Hood and Bonnie and Clyde. However, the main plot makes this film watchable. The main essence in which the filmmaker is trying to push through is from the most fundamental concept that Time is precious to be wasted. That time can easily be wasted but very hard to regain. I like the idea that time can be stolen that easily just like when you wait for a person and you still have things to do aside from waiting.

As for the actors, personally, I do not adore Justin as an actor and even in this movie he seemed to be monotonous. I think he has to exert more effort in conveying what he wants the audience to feel. Seyfried, on the other hand, plays the character well with her eyes.

This may not level with Inception in terms of grandeur, however, this is one movie worthy of your time. Surely, you won't have your time wasted sitting in a cinema watching this flick.

GRADE: B+
