In a future where time is literally money and aging stops at 25, the only way to stay alive is to earn, steal, or inherit more time. Will Salas lives minute-to-minute, until a windfall of time gives him access to the world of the wealthy, where he teams up with a beautiful young heiress to destroy the corrupt system.
Crime Sci-Fi Thriller - This is a sci-fi drama of serious ideas, not so much a more action-
oriented film as the advertising suggests. Fans of Justin Timberlake
and Amanda Seyfried will have plenty to savor though co-star Olivia
Wilde has very limited screen time. Adult subject matter and some
violence make the film of caution for parents of young children.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average Trying doesn't mean succeeding, but at least the effort is there. And, plot holes aside (and there are a lot of them), In Time slips by quickly enough. Still, those with 109 minutes available might want to consider spending it elsewhere.
Roger EbertFull Review Good 'In Time' is a science-fiction movie in which time is a fungible commodity...The premise is damnably intriguing.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average For a film about the preciousness of every second, Time still yanks away minutes moviegoers may wish they could get back.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 55 moviegoers:
TEENS:One male loved "In Time," and the other three rated it above average, which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much but didn't love. Great reviews from the ladies. Half loved it and the rest enjoyed it very much, rating it above average. One rated it terrible but that's likely a bogus review.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Great reviews from both the males and females. Three-quarters absolutely loved "In Time," rating it "Excellent" or "Fantastic."
ADULTS:Almost great reviews from both the males and females. Over half rated it very high, indicating they loved "In Time." Many more rated it above average, which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. Unfortunately, a fair number of males and even more females, only rated it average to below average. That's why I said these are "Almost" great reviews.
