Time Is Power
In the not-too-distant future the aging gene has been switched off. To avoid overpopulation, time has become the currency and the way people pay for luxuries and necessities. The rich can live forever, while the rest try to negotiate for their immortality. A poor young man who comes into a fortune of time, though too late to help his mother from dying. He ends up on the run from a corrupt police force known as 'time keepers'.

One of the film's stronger threads poses a key question: even if you could extend your life by decades, would you really want to?

Great premise, great start to the movie, decent follow-through. Although I wish the strong start was able to be carried throughout the movie, I found this movie quite enjoyable to watch.

Not horrendous but it is definitely not worth watching.
The main premise while definitely not an original idea, like many people think, is interesting non the less. However the plot is as unoriginal as plots can get in a film like this.The attempt to make a statement on the capitalist system and the flaws it has is so in your face and leaves nothing to contemplate, something i think is the same as having no real point to a film (which is not a bad thing necessarily but in this case it is). The acting is fine i guess and Timberlake is exactly the same as in any film i have seen him in. Overall i think the film got boring after 40 minutes, the plot dragged on and there was nothing to be said after the halfway point except wrap it all up in a hollywood ending with a bow on top. A sub-par film you really wont miss anything if you skip.
