  • Fx Ardhi Djohary's rating of the film In Time

    An unique concept, different from the other but lack of depth in script department and bad execution. It's true that this could have been more

  • Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film In Time

    "You can have 15 minutes good time with me for the price of one hour". --- D'après une nouvelle de l'auteur du Passe-Muraille, ce film du réalisateur néo-zélandais Andrew Niccol est beaucoup plus intéressant qu'il n'y paraît de prime abord. D'abord pour son scénario. Ensuite ses dialogues.

  • Addy K.'s rating of the film In Time

    Andrew Niccol rehashes GATTACA and Gucci in a schockly sci-fi adventure featuring a Bonnie and Cylde couple (Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfred) who steal...time. The acting standards are so low and the writing so substandard that you will have to rely on Cillian Murphy running around with a gun to feel kinda okay. If that doesn't help, then Roger Deakins' gorgeous cinematography may get you through it. May be.

  • anarresti's rating of the film In Time

    This is what a dystopian film feels like. At first it makes you go somewhere far, elsewhere, not your own reality. A strange, uncorfortable place, where you see other humans and still feel safe, glad it's not you. And as you connect with the characters, something weird happens. That weird place, that distopyan world feels strangely similar to your own. Even if the currency is time, and people die when it runs out.

  • House 0f Leaves's rating of the film In Time

    Roger Deakins? Wow, especially since there were at least two locations lifted directly from the Matrix movies--the rooftoop chase from the first one and the dual-staircase room from the second. Anyway, a sci-fi film with good ideas, but all the problems that Anna listed below.

  • J. O.'s rating of the film In Time

    As interesting as the concept may be, the execution never exceeds a surface-level realization of global economy or social injustice. It's laughable how blatantly obvious and overly simplistic the film uses its material. Time-as-currency is certainly a very morbid, dystopic situation that speaks volumes about our current situation. It's a shame the director made it so painfully elementary.

  • Seth Farmer's rating of the film In Time

    This is one of the most insultingly stupid movies I've seen in a while. When attempting to make a science fiction allegory about the US's current financial system, how about actually knowing what the fuck you're talking about? However, if it had been called "Justin Time," that would have been ok.

  • João Eça's rating of the film In Time

    In Time, from the guy that made Gattaca, is almost a remake of that film, in the sense that it depicts a futuristic dystopia on which people rule according to their time of life (time is therefore currency). In Gattaca people ruled if they were genetically superior. But the craziness of this film is that it is much more subversive than Gattaca. Just replace time for money and it's really about our society.
