In Time is one of those movies that happened because Justin Timberlake got a little too popular, again. The aging gene has been shut off so people age until 25, then die a year later. To make things even better, people have green clocks in their arm that are counting down!! LOL.
We get our first “Who has time…” cheeseball line less than 3 minutes in. Then the girl/his MOM tells him she wouldn’t know what to do if she lost him. Hey that’s a creepy thing to say.
People pay for things with their arms. Coffee costs 4 minutes. You can just grab peoples’ arms and steal time at will. And if you knew how many times Apple changed “peoples'” – even after i closed the dialogue, you would throw my phone for me. Timberlake, predictably, is the guy who knows everything. He saves some idiot guy and they run down the road – straight line! Hit an alleyway and vanish – or stay in the street light. Running into a warehouse eludes the mob.
The guy transfers all his time to Timberlake, except 5 minutes. That’s enough to reach the bridge across the window, and for JT to simultaneously wake up on cue, run to him and just miss him.
A guy with a big ass nose is a dick in a bus. Timberlake’s hot mom dies, a foot away from reaching him after a two-hour sprint.
Even though coffee costs 4 minutes, tolls to time zones cost 2 months to a year. Just to travel. Will Sallis wins 900 years in a poker game. He somehow was able to bet more than I think he had.
Now, Timberlake/Sallis is suddenly the best fighter ever and beats up 8 cops. He then flips his car and we see maybe the most obvious scale model in film.
Fortunately, the couple didn’t have to hit the loop, just down the road.
Will’s idiot friend drank himself to death after getting rich, which is what most stupid poor people would do with money. Fuck it up.
Just a lot of stuff keeps happening that is really unlikely. And I don’t know why this movie is in insanely widescreen.
At this point, they’re just running without purpose. Scarecrow is in full pursuit.
A pussy guy sits there as a dude drains all his time and kills him! The gun isn’t even directly in his face and he just dies. I’ll take a bullet and go down fighting.
Timberlake realizes the level of corruption is insane and gives up (after killing 3 gang members with guns while in an arm wrestling contest with a gang member).
This works! LOL
Why would anyone put their gun down?
Next, the girl guesses the combination to her dad’s safe – first try. It was Charles Darwin’s birthday. And she guessed that (and knew it, who knows that?).
I guess Timberlake’s car is bulletproof because he drives through a police barricade, all firing at him. You see bullets bouncing off of the side of his car facing away from the barricade, too.
They have a million years in their hands but Timberlake and his plastic surgeried up girl don’t take any time for themselves. Scarecrow dies on cue. Timberlake manages to get enough time to run toward the girl and save her, last second as you would expect from this movie.
This is a stupid ass’s movie. If you watch it and think its intelligent or witty, it is because you’re dopey.
