In Time, Bringing Sexy Back

In Time, bringing sexy back, well sort of. Full of action and celebrities but a little lacking in the storyline. There was no background which kind of left me trying to figure out why some of the things the characters were doing or talking about. If you are a fan of Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, or Cillian Murphy then this is a movie that would be more towards your interest.
This movie takes place in a world where everyone stops aging at the age of 25, but only have one more to live. To live longer, people have to work because time has become the currency of the world. Will Salas (Timberlake) is 28 years old, living in the ghetto, and working day today to stay alive. One night he saves a rich drunk guy from getting robbed of his time. The drunk guy, Henry Hamilton, has over 100 years on his clock and is tired of living. He gives  all of his time to Will and dies. Will decides to use his new time to get out of the ghetto and go to the uptown New Greenwich to try to take their money. The death of Henry has alerted some unwanted attention by the time keepers headed by Raymond Leon (Murphy). The time keepers are looking for Will because they believe that he killed Henry. Well in New Greenwich, Will uses his new time to meet some new people like Philippe Weis (Vincent Kartheiser) and his daugher, Sylvia (Seyfried). The time keepers manage to find Will and he kidnaps Sylvia to try to stay alive. Will takes Sylvia to the ghetto to try to hide and figure out a plan, but the time keepers are on his tail and some other people looking for his time.
This movie was pretty fast paced to keep your attention and there was a bunch of action. The story was a little disjunct and the dialog kind of lame,  but this is an action movie so who cares. My friend asked me if Justin takes his shirt off and yes he does a couple of times. The concept of the movie is cool and does make a good syfy action movie. My suggestion is to see it when it gets to a cheap movie theater or rent it. :)
