"In Time" DVD review

Let the countdown begin.  Leave the existing world behind and enter into a futuristic world where the aging gene is switched off after 25 and time is money, literally, that many can’t afford in the cutting-edge thriller IN TIME, arriving on Blu-ray and DVD January 31 from  Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  Featuring an all-star cast including  Justin Timberlake (The Social Network), Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!) and Cillian Murphy (Inception), the film puts an innovative spin on class warfare and explores the corruptness that lies within.

In the future, time has become the ultimate currency and genetic alteration has allowed people to stop aging at 25 years old.  Upon reaching 25, the countdown begins and in order to stay alive everyone must work to buy themselves more time or die within a year.  The rich can buy their way out of the situation, while the rest are left to negotiate for immortality.  When a struggling young man, Will Salas  (Timberlake), comes in contact with a “millionaire,” he is gifted more time than he can imagine.  Falseley accused of murder, Will is a fugitive on the run and becomes determined to bring down the entire system by any means possible.

Showcasing stunning visual effects and gravity defying stunts, the IN TIME Blu-ray is loaded with bonus materials including an exclusive featurette “THE MINUTES” to discover the origins of the film’s time based society, deleted and extended scenes, and access to the enhanced IN TIME THE GAME APP.  DVD special features include deleted and extended scenes.  IN TIME will be available on Blu-ray for an average retail price of  $24.99 and on DVD for $19.99, respectively.
My thoughts/review:
I honestly enjoyed this film, I was not sure how it would play out but it was honestly a great film.  I normally blog/work on my computer while movies are on the TV, but this movie intrigued me so much that I had to unplug myself!  This  movie based in the future where the currency is "time" instead of money.  When you think about it, it is true, time is money! The people in the movie stop aging at 25 years old and get one more year on their life, but they can earn more time by working, stealing or having it given to them.

This movie has it all; action, romance, fight scenes, etc.  Kind of Bonnie and Clyde-esque/Robin Hood theme later in the movie.  I don't want to give too much away, but some people come to realize that having "all the time" isn't as important as everyone having time and thus a crime spree develops.  

I think this is a great film  that did not get a lot of TV time for the theatre release or the DVD release.   If you are looking for a great film that is action packed, then this is for you!
