Welcome to a world where time has become the ultimate currency. You stop aging at 25, but there's a catch: you're genetically-engineered to live only one more year, unless you can buy your way out of it. The rich "earn" decades at a time (remaining at age 25), becoming essentially immortal, while the rest beg, borrow or steal enough hours to make it through the day. When a man from the wrong side of the tracks is falsely accused of murder, he is forced to go on the run with a beautiful hostage. Living minute to minute, the duo's love becomes a powerful tool in their war against the system.Written by

The map in Timekeeper HQ shows the lat/long coordinates of 33.9935 degrees N, 118.229(4)... Some can reasonably argue that it shows -118, but there would be no need for that if the W were included. The audience cannot see this, of course - it is off the display.
The stated coordinates place the location as Vernon, CA. If one looks at the map in the movie, this corresponds to Time Zone 12 (i.e. Dayton).
If one compares this map to a real-world map, one will also see that the shape of the depicted map corresponds nearly precisely to the real-world California coastline south and west of Los Angeles. Thus, Time Zone 4, that of New Greenwich, would be the Hollywood-Beverly Hills-Santa Monica corridor.
Note also that later in the film, Philippe Weis appears to only be in charge of Global Time Zone 16 out of 24 Global Time Zones. See more »
Sylvia correctly tells Will that Charles Darwin was born in 1809. This statement had to be dubbed because her mouth can be seen flubbing the line by saying 1804. See more »
I don't have time. I don't have time to worry about how it happened. It is what it is. We're genetically engineered to stop aging at 25. The trouble is, we live only one more year, unless we can get more time. Time is now the currency. We earn it and spend it. The rich can live forever. And the rest of us? I just want to wake up with more time on my hand than hours in the day.

Looking at this film and its concept I was intrigued. With this said the film does fail to live up to the potential of its concept. One of the few major issues i have with this film is the lack of back-story with regards to the implementation of the 'body clock', along with the lack of true quality acting and a well written script. As a result of this what the viewer will get from this film experience are moments (and i mean moments) where you are enjoying the film, but by the end of it all you can reflect on what you have seen and notice that you could have done a lot more with your money if you had not gone to watch In Time.
...What a pity
