Storyline

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 Twentieth Century Fox

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

The main actor leaves the party at night with <2hrs left on his life, by morning, after driving far enough to outrun cops/dragnet, fall into the ravine, get mugged for more time (having to split his time with his girlfriend), walking to his friend's house, walking to a pawn shop that's about to close (5pm?), he still has a minute left. that's a lot of mileage in 2hrs! He should have died. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Will Salas: 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.

Great start, decent follow-through.
20 January 2012 | by droze01See all my reviews

As others have said, the idea of this movie was excellent. You could call it a skeptical analogy of what is happening in some parts of the world – the richest people of the planet abusing poor.

What I liked about the movie, especially in the early stages, was how much the movie made me think. It was also bizarre to think of what things would be like if nobody looked older than 25. The movie played upon the possibility of multiple generations would look the same age – at least for those rich enough to afford to purchase the additional years. The story was also well thought out in relation to how people would act within the differing classes of society: the rich would take their time and take few risks. The poor would treasure their time, moving quickly, and, with less to lose, would be less risk adverse.

Great premise, great start to the movie, decent follow-through. Although I wish the strong start was able to be carried throughout the movie, I found this movie quite enjoyable to watch.
