This movie has a lot of stars, but only a few shine. Timberlake and Seyfried are surprisingly flat for the lead actors. Their romance is forced and takes up time that could be used for better reasons. Olivia Wilde and Johnny Galecki are pretty big stars but the film cant find anything for them to do. The best performances come from Murphy, Pettyfer, and Kartheiser. The movie uses too much time to deal with the relationship to realize that the most dynamic characters have smaller roles. Basically, the film is flat with Timberlake and Seyfried but comes alive with Kartheiser and the villians.
The film has an excellent first act. But around the time Salas and Sylvia start running from Leon it starts to get boring. The film has too much romantic tension and could use a bit more action and drama. The film springs back to life in the third act with lots of action and good drama.
Excuse the time puns in the following paragraph. In Time is not a waste of time, its a pretty solid movie. But some poor execution in the middle makes for a movie that's worth seeing but not the intense cat and mouse thriller it should be.
THE FINAL GRADE: C (5.7/10)
