DVD Review - In Time

About the DVD

Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried and Cillian Murphy

Star in The Pulse-Pounding Sci-Fi Thriller
Debuting on Blu-ray and DVD January 31

Let the countdown begin. Leave the existing world behind and enter into a futuristic world where the aging gene is switched off after 25 and time is money, literally, that many can’t afford in the cutting-edge thriller IN TIME, arriving on Blu-ray and DVD January 31 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Featuring an all-star cast including Justin Timberlake (The Social Network), Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!) and Cillian Murphy (Inception), the film puts an innovative spin on class warfare and explores the corruptness that lies within.

In the future, time has become the ultimate currency and genetic alteration has allowed people to stop aging at 25 years old. Upon reaching 25, the countdown begins and in order to stay alive everyone must work to buy themselves more time or die within a year. The rich can buy their way out of the situation, while the rest are left to negotiate for immortality. When a struggling young man, Will Salas (Timberlake), comes in contact with a “millionaire,” he is gifted more time than he can imagine. Falseley accused of murder, Will is a fugitive on the run and becomes determined to bring down the entire system by any means possible.

Showcasing stunning visual effects and gravity defying stunts, the IN TIME Blu-ray is loaded with bonus materials including an exclusive featurette “THE MINUTES” to discover the origins of the film’s time based society, deleted and extended scenes, and access to the enhanced IN TIME THE GAME APP. DVD special features include deleted and extended scenes. IN TIME will be available on Blu-ray for an average retail price of $24.99 and on DVD for $19.99, respectively. Prebook is January 4.

My Take on the DVD
I had originally seen a preview of this movie and thought it looked like a action packed thriller and after seeing it I can say that the preview hit it dead on. The action starts from the beginning and keeps you on the edge of your seat to the end. While there could have been a bit more character development overall, the movie was still fun and the time just flew by! There were also some interesting concepts explored when it came to looking at the have and have-nots in the society that was the society of the movie. Overall, this was a great movie that I would encourage any action movie lover!
