Movie Review: In Time

By | November 1, 2011

In the future people stop aging at 25. Yet they are allowed to live via a timer on their hands until they are 26, unless they work hard for extra seconds to add to their timers. Every thing is paid for by minutes, hours, days, months, or years.

Did I like the movie? Well I liked the first 15 minutes of it, the idea of the movie, the timer, that Time is money. Then as the seconds on the actor’s timers began to click off I became anxious, I hated the fear and the deadline and the scrambling for mere minutes and hours to live with. Too depressing.

Also, the actress’s hair cut hurt my eye. For the love of god she is on the run and her hair is like a helmet, not one hair out of place and just too attached to her face. She has no where to sleep yet her eyes are always kohl rimmed and her hair is always shiny and straightened and stuck to her head. Ma dahan? Ma entekash? Ma 9arat!

I guess its the kind of movie you either like or hate. Also it was pretty tall to the point of being boring. I didn’t like it, it got to my nerves. Not something I would care to watch again. My husband didn’t like it either.
