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

Enjoyable new plot, worth a watchBy Patt9 (9 reviews) , 12 Jul 2013I really enjoyed this film which has a new kind of plot that hasn't been tried before; and that's what makes it so enjoyable. It keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat from start to finish . The film is a bit ropey round the edges but well worth a watch
Logan's run meets The Island, good enough.By Malinky (21 reviews) from Aberdeen , 27 Jun 2013A cross between Logan's Run and The Island but watchable sci-fi pap. The principles are believable enough and not too long.
All you need is timeBy RussnEmma (403 reviews) from London, England , 28 May 2013Interesting idea for this movie with the world now governed by time and not money. Everything you earn and buy uses time as the currency however there was some slight flaws in the plot and unexplained areas which got me thinking that this movie could've been thought out slightly better. Timberlake and Seyfried are strong enough actors for the lead roles and there is enough storyline to get you until the end.
Glad I watched it, but not on my top 20 moviesBy SkippyHouston (13 reviews) from Glasgow , 26 May 2013Great idea for a movie, but the acting was ropey to say the least. Kind of 'Robin Hood' story, maybe they should have thrown a bit more money at it and it would have been better.
Could Have Been GreatBy Otter379 (96 reviews) , 24 May 2013What amounts to a good premise is wasted by naff direction and a nothing cast. Time is the new currency and in the future people work to receive hours on a clock displayed on their arms. If you don't find work you don't get time and if the counter reaches you die. Everything costs time: a cup of coffee, rent a meal etcetera. Both Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried (ridiculous massive heels) are miscast as action heroes. Both come across as weak and insipid which fundamentally undermines the action. They just don't look capable. In the '80s this would have been the perfect Schwarznegger or Willis vehicle. Makes you wonder where the new generation of action stars are.
