Andrew Niccol is the writer of The Truman Show. His directorial venture, In time, is a film set in the future with a plot that has its share of fun. But the strangeness of the plot also causes enough trouble with the makers. It is an interesting idea based on time and it takes its time to completely give its concept.
But it seems Niccol still has traces of his Truman hangover! The concept spreads to more people and characters unlike Truman Show but constrains itself to a rather small world. And the proceedings does not have too much complications and leaves space for plenty of loose ends. Even the casting of the film does not seem completely convincing making the flaws in the writing seem even more bigger.
The film tries to provide with happenings with time but sadly things seem a little funny at times when it isn't meant to be. The visual effects of the film does work well and the shots capture the characters with immense smartness. But there is something not right about the film making it just another forgettable science fiction film.
