In Time

Went out to the movies last night in the company of four lovely women (you know who you are) and saw "In Time."

Fun little film. Nothing too deep, nothing too groundbreaking. The whole "time is money" thing worked fairly well, and the whole movie was a fairly straightforward allegory for corporate greed. It's also a not bad chase money. And while the ending was predictable, it was fun predictable.

For the most part I liked it. The one thing that I really didn't like was Amanda Seyfried's shoes.

Seriously. The shoes. Because I don't care how much you practice running (and her character wouldn't have practiced much before she met Justin Timberlake's character) no one runs that fast in 5 inch spike heeled platforms.

I know Amanda is short and needed to be in frame with Justin, but couldn't they have found a nice pair of combat boots for her? Just for believability's sake.

(Of course, making a movie about people who turn 25 and then only have a year to live unless they earn more time, chances are believability wasn't high on the list).

Still, it was a good bit of fun and all four of the women with me assured me that Justin looks cute with his shirt off. So if you like a good gritty near-future sci-fi action movie, I'd give this one a try.

Just ignore the shoes.
