In Time

Rated 2.0

In a dystopian future, humans have been genetically modified to stop aging at 25, at which time a green glowing stopwatch kicks in on their forearm and starts ticking off their last year. The good news is that time can be transferred between folks with a simple wrist clasp. The bad news is that time is money and the wealthy control the currency, feeding off the life spans of the poor like fat ’n’ happy economic vampires. Enter into the mix Justin Timberlake who receives a couple of life spans from some jaded millennium-aire for saving his life. Being our hero, Timberlake takes off without a change of expression and heads to the rich side of town to do an ill-defined something about the situation as a time cop hounds his ass like we’re in some mash-up between Les Mis and Logan’s Run. In Time is content to cruise on the promise of its premise without bothering to instill a spark of substance. As a timewaster though, it is ironically efficient. Cinemark 14, Feather River Cinemas and Paradise Cinema 7. Rated PG-13
