Director: Andrew Niccol. Cast: Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy, Olivia Wilde. 109 min. Sci-fi/Thriller.
The great sci-fi filmmaker Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, S1m0ne) tells a Logan's Run-like tale of a world where people only age up to 25 years, and instead of money, trade and work for extra time to lengthen their lives. The story possibilities here are endless, and Niccol takes great advantage of the "ticking time-bomb" device in numerous sequences to make this a worthy thriller; on the side using his Robin Hood character to create ingenious allegories of greed and power in a future world (some would call this a Commie film). Amazingly, when it comes to acting, Justin Timberlake always delivers.
