In Time (Sci-Fi Action 2011)

If anything, what this movie shows is that you really don't have to have much talent to be a convincing actor. Justin Timberlake is not all that talented, may that be singing, acting, or whatever else he does. Although he didn't blunder up anything in this one, it really can't be too hard to be an actor as long as you just keep on saying your lines.

This movie is set in an odd world where currency and life is all controlled by how much time you have on the side of your arm. I'm not sure how a society could function economically with such a restriction in place but yeah...

The story is OK but it's very superficial. Amanda Seyfried joins Timberlake as a futuristic Bonnie and Clyde and they go about wreaking havoc on the system. It's nice to see a sci-fi film since there are so few of them around but yeah...a little more thought into the story could've done wonders for it.
