Plot Synopsis: In a future where people stop aging at 25, but are engineered to live only one more year, having the means to buy your way out of the situation is a shot at immortal youth. Here, Will Salas finds himself accused of murder and on the run with a hostage - a connection that becomes an important part of the way against the system.
So in the future, you earn time, not cash. You have lots of time, your rich and live in the good neighborhood, or time zones as they are called. If your poor you have hardly anytime, and live in the ghetto. Well one day in the hood some deadbeat chick who cant pay her bills, and sponges off her kid, even though he has no time either dies when she runs out of time. This white trash whore is Justin Timberlake's mom.
Luckily for Timberlake he just got a Century worth of time from a rich guy who wanted to die. So he decides to take down the system. He goes to the rich part of town and starts putting his patented boy band moves on Amanda Seyfried. Too bad the time police think he killed the rich guy and they drive up to arrest him. He escapes, taking her hostage.
When her dad wont pay the ransom, the two decide to start knocking off banks and then give the time they steal away, so the whole rich, poor establishment collapses. Sound cool? Too bad its boring.
Timberlake is very good, which proves boy band singers should transition into films more often. Marky Mark anyone? Seyfriend is annoying, and not much to look at. Hell the chick who played his dirt poor, deadbeat mom was hotter. I would have reversed the roles. The film moves slow, there are no surprises, and hell even no real ending.
Watch it on cable on a Sunday afternoon if nothing else is on. Otherwise avoid.
Overall 2 out of 5 Stars!
