The main character, Will Salas (Justin Timberlake), by reason of his own boundless generosity (apparently, he grafted his father) saves the wealthy Henry Hamilton (Matthew Bomer) from the "watchmen" - micro-analog of organized crime, not very good people who steal people's time. But it turns out that Hamilton himself, who is 105 years old, not eager to move on, because it just so bored with the seemingly fascinating process. Omitting some details, our hero, the other day, who lost mother (Olivia Wilde), resulting gets 116 years and the money, goes to the city center, the seat of power and time of the haves, the desire to be burnt by the justice and years of life to the masses.
Oh yeah, almost forgot - he's learned the truth, that, say, it is enough time for everybody. Just greedy grabbers snickering do not want to share, because the "immortality is chosen lives of ordinary people."
In short, "In Time" is suffering from a variety of details relating to the main logical component of the film. But there is a painting and one major drawback - it is completely filled up the idea. The idea, apparently, was not just good - it was beautiful. With such a plot it will be able to catch few important awards. But, certainly good attempt to combine dynamism with philosophical delights, Niccol, as often happens when chasing two hares at, stayed out of work.
But let's leave buried meaning under the weight of traffic. Another thing that is unpleasant affects in "Time" - a terrifying absence of thorough the world, which naturally leads to a decrease in believability. In addition to the unusual currency, the only thing that separates what is happening on the screen of what is happening in real life - is the speed of gait characters in different parts of the city. Alas, but that's all. Honestly, I really expected to see the future, with a capital letter. No, I do not mean flying cities and teleportation station, I mean pretty much what it was in "I, Robot" Alex Proyas, "Equilibrium" by Kurt Wimmer, or at least in the "Island" by Michael Bay. At least some little futuristic drop. Yes, even to design cars have changed, so we should not dream of transforming the characters around the world!
Fortunately, the film is stretched in places on its actors. This is, first of all, Justin Timberlake, again proving his acting worth. We can not, however, call his game very different, sometimes he exaggerates the drama, but does his role as it is more than worthy. Another is "tractor" can be named Cillian Murphy, who plays a conditional antagonist, a faithful guardian of their work time.
In spite of its infinite potential, "Time" is not an outstanding film, which boasts perhaps that its eyeballs. Completely bungled idea, ending mess of Robin Hood and our refined version of Bonnie and Clyde, to the finale was unscrupulously ousted sluggish action.
