Now that you've seen it, what did you think? The new film from Gattaca and Lord of War director Andrew Niccol formerly known as I'm.mortal or Now, officially titled In Time, finally hits theaters this weekend. Justin Timberlake & Amanda Seyfried star in a futuristic world where all humans stop aging at 25 and will live on only depending on a clock in their arm, which has also become the system of currency in a corrupt world. But is it any good? How is the concept versus the execution? How are the performances from JT and others? If you've seen it, leave a comment with your own thoughts on Andrew Niccol's In Time!
To steal some of your minutes, I just saw In Time last night, and it was a total let down. It started okay, but by the end I was wondering "how did it get this bad?" The whole concept itself, while I like it a lot, was a bit weak in execution. More than anything it just felt like the result of the studio editing over time, tinkering with it, turning into something that didn't have any weight to it in the end, instead it was a vacuous action movie where even the performances were lackluster, from JT, Seyfried and, sadly, even Cillian Murphy. It had such potential and needed a vastly bigger budget, as it seemed like they barely could dress any set or anyone on the project at all, except the main actors. And really, all they do is run, lots and lots of running.
What did you think of Niccol's In Time? An entertaining action movie, or complete let down?
