My Penny of View : In the future, time was the currency and it represented wealth. Every individual stopped aging after 25 years old and they have to work to earn time for living or they will die a year later. Everyone have their time embedded on their arms and each social class differentiated by Time Zone. The poor needed to work everyday to earn for living and other expenses in Dayton while the rich one could live luxuriously for centuries in New Greenwich. Will was living with his mother, Rachel in the poor Time Zone and he promised to bring Rachel to New Greenwich one day. Will and Borel visited a bar and they met a rich 105 years old Henry. Minuteman stopped by trying to rob Henry and he was saved by Will. They went to an abandoned factory. Henry expressed tired for being immortal and Will felt upset and he argued that everyone should die naturally rather than depends on time they have. After that night, Henry transferred his time to Will and himself went suicide at the bridge. Will intended to save Henry but too late and he was recorded by surveillance camera. Finally, Will's dream came true to bring his mother to New Greenwich but he waited at the bus station and he found out she didn't arrive as usual. He quickly ran toward his mother originated place but it was too late and she has been timeout. What will happen to Will? What will he do with the time he got?

Justin Timberlake currently don't sing and dance but he likes acting. I have watched the Friends with Benefits earlier and I think his acting skill has been improved quite a lot. He is the only 'N Sync that survived after all. The story line was interesting, the future currency not gold or diamond but time. The poor need to work to gain the time while the rich live immortal. They even can transfer time and go to bank of time to apply time loan. They use time to pay for rental, drinks and even bus fare. The rich one has plenty of time and they live luxuriously in different Time Zone. The poor work to live but the rich one request to die. I guess this kind of phenomena is happening in our current world. If we still don't do something to rectify it, the gap between poor and rich will be come bigger and bigger but isn't it should be this way in order the poor one keep on working to move on to higher class? Wealth don't come by luck but smart, hard work and opportunities. But hopefully inflation can be controlled wisely. Sometimes, different occur as pushing factor to move forward. This movie is definitely an inspiring story to foresee our future.
