Runnin Time: 109 Mins
Director: Andrew Niccol
My Rating: 4.5/5
The thing about movie reviews is that they go on and on about this and that. I don’t care about explaining the plot while trying not to give away the good bits. When I read reviews I’m just looking for one answer; should I use my time watching this? Yes. ‘In time’ is one of those movies that every philantropist, humanitarian and Sci-Fi fan must watch.
Top 5 Good Factors
1) Lead Actor – I am not a Justin Timberlake fan.I have always viewed him as the cute Soprano that traded the Mickey Mouse Club for NSYNC however the cry me a river star gives justice to this movie as Will Salas. If there is anything else that will keep you watching is his impressive acting.
2) The Story – The movie centres around the concepts of inequality and the unfairness of the ‘social class’ reality. In a way it tells a fictious story that is very close to the non fiction world that we live in. For Sci-Fi die hards be warned that the Sci-Fi content is very mild; there are no lazer sabers or outer world big light bulb headed beings.
3) Character Chemistry– every actor in the movie has a purpose. The characters gel together so well that you are not left with that annoying question, ‘what was the point of having that guy?’
4) The background scene composition – looked like alot of artistic work went into designing the set. The scenic background looked so appropriate for the story line. The furniture, colours, cars, fashion and archiecture everything just worked.
5)Action -there’s running around, figting, car chase and some form of porkour but I think the action could have done with a little bit more drammar and that is why it ranks at the bottom of my best features.
