This movie reminded me of 21 which was way better. I should have known it was not going to be that great of a movie I'm not a big fan of Ben Affleck. I do like Justin Timberlake he acted well but I thought In Time was a much better thriller film. There was not much thrills for a thriller. I was not on the edge of my seat. The action in the film was okay needed more of it because it was a bit dull. This film had a predictable storyline. Overall not that great of a movie.
I would say save your money and wait till DVD. You are not missing much of anything.
