Rating: 7/10 (on thought provoking-ness)
HAHA factor: 2/10 (mostly AT the movie)
ACTING: 5/10 (nyehh)
Funny, how I came about watching this movie. You see the original plan was to watch the oh-so-awesome, raved about, REAL STEEL. But we weren’t in time to catch that, so we settled for this.
No spoilers I promise.
If you want a brief summary, think about a world where money was out of the equation and time was THE currency of life.
You age until 25 and then stop. After that, you are given a year to your life. You work, you earn more time.
You waste time, your loss.
There are poverty stricken time zones (the ghettos) and the filthy rich time zones (Greenwich). It is an unfair world, the rich get richer the poor...die...
...much like today.
Hero: Justin Timberlake
Love interest/ Partner in Crime: Amanda Sdgfriegds
Mission: Save the economy
success: unknown...(no spoiler)
Anyway, Justin Timberlake and Amanda SifadterfuGFYD do make a cute couple. But that’s it. I predicted the lines on two occasions. Plus, I hated her hair in the movie. I hope she will not forever be “the dumb one” from Mean Girls for me.
The idea is a bit out there, but I applaud its trying to make us think outside what we believe possible.
But since Lord of The Rings, only the epic is meant for the big screen.
You’re not missing much if you catch it on DVD.
