In Time

Summary: Let the countdown begin.  Leave the existing world behind and enter into a futuristic world where the aging gene is switched off after 25 and time is money, literally, that many can’t afford in the cutting-edge thriller IN TIME, arriving on Blu-ray and DVD January 31 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  Featuring an all-star cast including Justin Timberlake (The Social Network), Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!) and Cillian Murphy (Inception), the film puts an innovative spin on class warfare and explores the corruptness that lies within.

In the future, time has become the ultimate currency and genetic alteration has allowed people to stop aging at 25 years old.  Upon reaching 25, the countdown begins and in order to stay alive everyone must work to buy themselves more time or die within a year.  The rich can buy their way out of the situation, while the rest are left to negotiate for immortality.  When a struggling young man, Will Salas (Timberlake), comes in contact with a “millionaire,” he is gifted more time than he can imagine.  Falseley accused of murder, Will is a fugitive on the run and becomes determined to bring down the entire system by any means possible.

FANTASTIC!!!!  I was thrilled to receive this movie in the mail this morning.  I was on the edge of my seat most of the movie (I was trying to hear it over my younger two who were supposed to be napping), I absolutely loved it.  My oldest daughter asked if she could watch it but because it's rated PG-13 the answer was "we need to watch it first", and so I did.  And the rating is due to some language, which I don't remember there being much, and the "brief" sexual content.   I wish every movie that had a sex scene had one like this....both people had clothes on, a nice bra was covering and there wasn't much to see which was fantastic.  I love it, oh and it lasted about five seconds, there was never any sex, it was great!
  I was surprised, as was my husband, Justin Timberlake didn't completely suck playing Will Salas.  He actually did a good job and his hair, his face; definitely suited the role he was playing.  He did a great job doing something for others, getting more time for them to live their lives.  His leading lady, Amanda Seyfried playing Sylvia Weis, did a pretty good job of her own even though there wasn't really much to do other than run!  But she did a pretty good job playing the rich snot turned into bad girl doing good for other against the wants and wishes of her rich and powerful daddy.

  This movie makes me think so much of real life, our lives today.  Except in the movie they all stop aging at the age of 25, oh to be that young and beautiful forever.   But there is a trick to it all, you remain young and lovely but that's when you've got to start working for your survival, much like the way the world actually does run.  With a few exceptions of course.  But just like in our lives today, the rich get richer while us little people struggle and fight for survival every day.  They, Sylvia, don't know what it's like for the little people, Will, to live day to day from the "Ghetto".  And unlike the movie we continue to age and we don't have a ticking digital watch running down the length of our arm to let us know how close we are to death.  I am thankful for that, personally!  I really enjoyed this movie it had an excitement about it that was a thrill to watch.  I truly think this movie would make a good, enjoyable night in with a bag of popcorn and some soda, or water.  I will definitely end up watching it again, likely over and over.  It was just that good.

I give this movie 4 out of 4 thumbs up.
