In a future where people stop aging at 25, but are engineered to live only one more year, having the means to buy your way out of the situation is a shot at immortal youth. Here, Will Salas finds himself accused of murder and on the run with a hostage – a connection that becomes an important part of the way against the system.
It’s not exactly scene after scene of action-packed, mind-blowing car chases and gun fights (though the movie had these, too) but it’ll do for the weekend’s entertainment.
The dialogue and acting leave much to be desired for. They ruined the potential of the movie. It had an interesting premise but the director was going for mediocrity. Apparently, there was no time to really make the film worthy of its interesting concept. LOL!
In the words of a reviewer over at Rotten Tomatoes, “Really interesting idea…really flawed execution. Full to the brim with refrigerator logic.” And here’s another, “Exactly as bad as you think it’s going to be, but frustratingly so because the premise is kind of awesome. At the end of the day, it’s a fun movie – much in the same vein as The Adjustment Bureau – worth watching for a brainless night in with your equally-good-humored main squeeze.” Too bad. Oh well. I still enjoyed it though.
In terms of box office opening revenues, Puss In Boots got the top followed by Paranormal Activity 3 and then In Time. At least, it lives up to its genre: action-drama-thriller. I guess people prefer guaranteed laughs or guaranteed scare moments.
