In a near future where aging stops at 25, time is the new currency and the wealthy can live forever. When Will Salas inherits decades of life from a wealthy murdered man, he's pegged as the suspect by the corrupt Time Keepers, who enforce the law.
Interesting more for such an amazing director. I wonder what made this movie turn into a teenager one, perhaps the cast being overall around 25 years old, or the lack of substantive content. I felt David Fincher was going in the same direction, strange... The concept was great tho, with a whole market of time, a science fiction film that recreates an organization of the society, which I always like. But the truth is that in terms of district organization of the world, it reminds me of the Hunger Games, in terms of circles of the society and the love story, it reminds me of Upside-Down, or for that case, the other way around since "In Time" arrived first... But basically, most of it is again and again the same story...
