In Time stars Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried in a movie set in the future, where people stop again at the age of 25 and in order to stop overpopulating the earth, people are genetically engineered to live for one more year after 25. With this system, time becomes the new currency with the wealthy being able to live forever and the poor having to beg, borrow and steal to make it though the day. Timberlake plays Will Salas, who finds himself accused of murder and on the run with a hostage, whose connection becomes important in the fight against the system. The premise of this movie with time becoming currency and people not aging had the potential to be a really good movie. I really had high hopes for Justin. I thought maybe this movie would be his big movie. It had such potential and completely blew it. Ok maybe not completely but man the movie was not good. The dialogue was bad and there were so many awkward pauses in the dialogue. It just made no sense. You would think that with some of the people in this cast (Cillian Murphy, Matt Bomer, Vincent Kartheiser) and the person who directed it (Andrew Niccol; Truman Show) that this would be at least a B- movie but sadly it was more like a D/C-. Timberlake’s last movie, Bad Teacher was almost as bad as this one. I think it might be time for Justin to get back to music full-time. Hollywood has given him enough movies to show that he can carry a movie and he has disappointed. He is hilarious when he does SNL or small smaller roles but he can’t carry a movie and should stop trying. Get back to making me a new album Justin.
