Minor Spoilers so be warned!!

There is no money in the future; everything is billed on time from your house bills to a cup of coffee. You stop aging at 25 and live the rest of your life on time. If you work you get paid in time. If your clock runs out so does your life. Society is divided between the rich and the poor who live completely different lives. The poor live each hour as it comes whereas the rich don’t concentrate on how much time they have.

Justin Timberlake’s character comes into contact with a very old man who doesn’t want to live anymore and shares some secrets with him about how the time works and that there is enough for everyone. This leads Timberlake on a mission to break the system and expose the truth. He meets up with Amanda Seyfried and the two of them become a partnership/duo to take down the system. The other main character in the film is Cillian Murphy’s Timekeeper who stands out as the best performer in the film. His character is like a bounty hunter constantly chasing down Timberlake and Seyfried trying to correct their wrongs.

Quick mention to Olivia Wilde who, as always, looks amazing in the film.

The film was very enjoyable and good fun. A slight issue of Justin Timberlake’s acting is still debatable but easily made up with by Cillian Murphy’s performance and the hotness of Amanda Seyfried throughout. If you’re a fan of action, sci-fi and Amanda Seyfried’s hotness (i suppose Justin Timberlake for the ladies) then i would recommend seeing this film.
