We hurried in and took our seats before Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried and Cillian Murphy introduced the film.
The film is set in the future, in a world where time has become currency.
Basically the premise is you stop aging at 25, but there’s a catch: you’re genetically-engineered to live only one more year, unless you can buy your way out of it.
The rich “earn” decades at a time (remaining at age 25), becoming essentially immortal, while the rest beg, borrow or steal enough hours to make it through the day.
When a man from the wrong side of the tracks (Justin) is handed loads of time from a random stranger (as you do) he is forced on the run, but not without picking up a hostage (Seyfried)
The film was shot very well and was very slick. The script was fantastic how they referenced the currency as time.
However, I think I was expecting a full on action film, which this film was not. If you go in expecting a cool Sci-fi thriller/drama, then happy days. If you’re thinking it will be something along the lines of a Vin Diesel film, then sorry to disappoint.
All in, it was a watchable film, with cool dialogue and slick outfits (which I think we’re all Hugo Boss) it makes it a film worth seeing.
The best way I can describe this film is in the following way:
“you’d buy it on DVD but not worth buying it on Blu-Ray, and not at full price, but on a 3 for £20 offer”
