An interesting idea that gets you curious, but ultimately In Time just doesn't deliver.

Original, exciting, interesting. Well worth watching.By roncoach (370 reviews) from suffolk , 07 Jul 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]An original plot---that's something rare these days. And it is a good film in all departments : story, acting, action, excitement,
But it's the basic premise of the story that holds the key to the success of this film : its originality provides and maintains the viewers' interest from start to finish.
Plenty to entertain most age groups, an interesting futuristic scenario, good for those who like car chase pics, good for romance , action and excitement.
Recommended ----a film well worth watching

Time's up!By RJNeb2 (1016 reviews) from London , 05 Sep 2013Time was when Andrew Niccol knew his way round a solid sci-fi premise. Check out 'Gattaca' for proof of that. And then stack it up against this mildly idiotic chase thriller where time has replaced money as the most valued currency and it can be transferred from person to person. Oh, and once you hit the age of 25, you've got one year to build up as much time as you can. While the film looks good, and the nature of the plot means it's filled with lots of lithe young things, it gets progressively sillier and ironically even less interesting as it lurches its way to its conclusion. 109 minutes of your time could be better deployed.
inadequate film with great ideaBy lesliejung (97 reviews) from london, england , 27 Aug 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHidein time all i could think of was that this was another opportunity to show gorgeous young people carefully covered by an agenda 'well, that's the story, right?' deeply depressing albeit a good gimmick. it is not a contemplation of time but more a contemplation of the debasement of currency of any kind; a comment on capitalism i suppose too. justin timberlake might eventually have what it takes, and i take advice from the late ebert's review commenting that one day he'd be a good actor, but there isn't much depth to the characterisation and it is distracting that all the actors are chosen probably because they look so good. so an underdeveloped premise, it seems to me.

was okBy open (376 reviews) , 26 Aug 2013So so sci fo fair. Niccol made a much better film with Gatteca but this was still worth a watch. Timberlake does well i the lead but i felt it could have been Mat Damon, Seyfried did little at all. And Murphy was the token Irish/brit villian
Could do betterBy a customer , 18 Aug 2013It was a promising story but lacked subtlety. It didn't fulfill its potential. We were pleased to see Thirteen from House in it...
Very good premiseBy ArrogantDuck (69 reviews) , 08 Aug 2013A unique and futuristic twist on Robin Hood-Bonnie & Clyde folklore from the writer of The Truman Show, Andrew Niccol. This was a surprisingly good movie, set in a world where time is currency and the 'poor' are segregated from the rich. It more or less is Robin Hood in the year 2525 (or whenever) but it delivers entertainment & a good story with decent characters and performances, Justin Timberlake may well be our next action star.
