In Time (2011)
Critic Consensus: In Time's intriguing premise and appealing cast are easily overpowered by the blunt, heavy-handed storytelling.
When Will Salas is falsely accused of murder, he must figure out a way to bring down a system where time is money - literally - enabling the wealthy to live forever while the poor, like Will, have to beg, borrow, and steal enough minutes to make it through another day. -- (C) 20th Century Fox

Critic Reviews for In Time
In Time is so crammed with provocative ideas it begins to feel over-crowded.
Even with its thoughtful nods to "Bonnie & Clyde" and "Les Miserables," "In time" never delivers that transcendent "Blade Runner" moment, and never rises above cult classic to simple classic.
Audience Reviews for In Time
Every frame of this dystopian thriller wants to remind you how excellent Niccol's Gattaca was. He is simply trying to tell a similar story set in a different futuristic world. As far as the premise and the first couple of acts go, that really works. Once you accept the idea of people paying with time, the plot is quite fascinating at first. Sadly, it feels like they didn't know where to go with it and what to do with the minor characters. The interesting cop is entirely wasted, for example. That's still entertaining enough but by the end you feel like this could have been so much more.
The premise of time being currency, and that for a few to live forever many must die, is amazing. Also, the cast is great. But the film, written and directed by Andrew Niccol, is less than the sum of its parts. It does not explore the world it creates. There are too many heavy handed narrative arcs. And the film ultimately becomes a Bonnie & Clyde knock off. In Time is fun, but it could have been so much greater, especially in the wake of the Occupy movement.
Odd and enjoyable sci-fi thriller, even if somewhat predictable.
