Good movie!
Verified purchase
The premise of having to earn time rather than money in this future world is only a minor distraction from the fact that the rich and powerful, with their paid, compliant minions, doing their duty, are no different from our own world - just makes it easier to watch a movie about how unjust it all can be. The performances are all sound, but I found the casting of Vincent Kartheiser as Philippe Weis particularly inspired, with his plump childlike aspect masking a cold tyrant. The Timekeeper character, Raymond Leon, played by Cillian Murphy, is very reminiscent of the troubled Deckard in Bladerunner, having to do his job, though he is not comfortable with it - I wonder if his surname was even a sideways "homage" to the same movie? I couldn't help picking up a resonance! Great to see the character played by an actor who isn't stereotypically brawny, but holds his own in the action scenes just as well, his strength and intensity, as you'd expect, in those stunning eyes.

Good, but a shame it isn't great
Verified purchase
It's a five star concept, with some fantastic ideas atop its imaginative foundation. Give it half a thought though and you'll likely be scratching your head thinking 'Hang on, so people can just steal someone's time until that person literally dies? That's a bit stupid. And what is this whole arm-wrestling game where they steal time? Because that doesn't really make sense either.' It's a real wonder these made it to the final film. It feels like a very strong first draft, but the mechanics of the world and its money system needed more solidifying. A film with all the potential to be brilliant - but unfortunately, it isn't; although it's worth watching for that potential - and for its unique commentary on capitalism. A good movie. A shame it isn't a great movie.

Way better than you might think
Verified purchase
It's a dodgy premise, but then again ALL sci-fi is dodgy in some way or other. You need to get past this to enjoy the film.

I'd say that, at the very least, the premise is intelligently explored. As with all good sci-fi, the message here is less about the technology, and more about mankind's failings. It's when there's truth in this vision of humanity that sci-fi films seem to go beyond just special effects. And this one does.

The cast are also better than you might think given who they are.

In short, this is a pretty rewarding film. As with many options here on Amazon Prime, if I were paying to watch this then I might be a bit more critical. But if it's free as part of your monthly Prime subscription then you can't really go wrong. A decent way to spend 90 minutes.

Worth a watch - but not too closely
Verified purchase
Thought provoking movie but the script was full of holes and the actors lacked enough emotion to make it great!
The idea being those you loved could die if they couldn't top up their time quick enough, but when that happened they survivors seemed to be "Oh well, time to move on!"
Great idea that time is money (or is it money is time!) and that exposed how the rich get richer and that there is plenty to go round, it just isn't distributed fairly (sounds familiar)
Nice idea - It just could have done with more 'time' spent on a good script!

Metaphor for what is wrong in this world
Verified purchase
A bit over the top but you can imagine if any of this was possible that there would be a lot of rich people who would definitely take advantage of this concept. I was never a big Timberlake fan but have realised over the years that he is quite self effacing and I've liked him in comedy roles. This is a great step into more serious acting.
The premise of the film harks back to ideas from the past, Logan's Run comes to mind. I was a big sci fi fan when I was younger and read most of the 50s authors. Because of this I find most of the big budget films with loads of CGI and special effects a little trite but this has a lot more going for it. It went a bit Bonnie and Clyde at the end and there is an element of 1984 in this film and that can't be a bad thing...

From Gattaca to .. this?
Verified purchase
It just doesn't compute. Gattaca is a bona fide masterpiece and one of the main reasons (there's also The Truman Show) that I'll give brain time to anything that Niccol has written or directed. Good Kill for me was the better film about drones, compared to Eye in the Sky, although I would have been surpised if I'd been told it was by Niccol, had I not known. Lord of War was gimmicky but had flashes of brilliance. Again though, I would have raised an eyebow if you'd told me it was the chap that made Gattaca. Then we get to this .. appalling junk and it makes you wonder whether Niccol really made Gattaca at all. The two stars I have given it are for each of Amanda Seyfried's legs, which get treated very well by the filmmakers, .. unlike the film's central premise. Don't get me started on how implausible almost every aspect of this film is. There's such a long list of holes. The main concept is actually the most plausible thing in the whole film .. and that should tell you everything you need to know, right there.

Logan's Run meets Bonnie and Clyde
Verified purchase
A sweet romantic sociatal tale where time IS money. Or life credits to be exact.

Its fair to call this Logan's Run meets Bonnie and Clyde.
Fair performances by the actors.
It's a fabulouse idea but the pace is painfully slow.
Production design makes use of old styles with upgraded workings behind it all.
All in all a good film to not tax the brain by, but a few heart stopping moments; literally.
