Advantages: Thought provoking but action packed.
In Time is a sci fi thriller set in the future where time has become the currency. Everyone lives until they are 25 and then at the age of 25 a clock on their arm starts and they are given a year to live but they have to trade time in order to buy things and to live longer. It sounds a bit far fetched and like nonsense when I explain it like that but it is actually a really good film!
It's a film that makes you think. Obviously there is a hierarchy and a gap between those who have lots of time and those who have very little. There are time zones and you're not able to cross into the richer timezones unless you can afford to pay a lot of time - there's very little social mobility.
It stars Justin Timberlake and I was very impressed with him as an actor - I think he should stick to it and give up the singing!
It's a film that gets you thinking about the capitalist society that we live in and people's greed. It is very well made and has a well thought through plot (although why the time banks don't have better security I don't know!). It was very enjoyable and thought provoking.
Summary: Yes it is worth your time.
