Just in Time
A lil cheeky review of a film I have recently watched :-)
Grab yourself two lovely ladies who have a combo box and share a large diet coke with your boss and you've got yourself a night out at the cinema with Justin Timberlake. His new film is action packed and set in a futuristic modern earth. Although after a weak start In Time it soon grows on you ;)
The concept behind the film is great where time has replaced money and you must earn time to spend it with everything coming at a cost. The rich have everything and want nothing, and the poor have nothing and want everything. Cities are divided by 'time zones' where the poor are in ghettos and the rich are in a Hollywood lifestyle. Think of it as the film is based in Bradford where you are skint, getting handouts and mugging people for money only in the film it's for their time they have left.
Justin Timberlake plays the robin hood of the film and is out to change the corrupt system so everyone has time and a chance to live. At certain points of the film I was expecting him to break out into song "we've only got 4 minutes to save the world" unfortunately I was left disappointed, as with only Olivia Wilde one of the top billed cast being in it for 2 mins, perhaps she didn't have time to film it? ;)
Overall the film is a must see unless you wanna see a hormonal adolescent giving birth to a glittery vampires son who desperately wanted it to be a talking wolfs first born. The concept, storyline and characters are great and it leaves you wondering what our attitudes are like towards wealth and life today.
