The poor, after all, are slaves to time where several people die young and keep pretty while preyed by time bandits known as Minute Men who clean clocks at gunpoint.
Rather than striving for money gain, the personal ambition for every people is directed entirely at acquiring additional time where rich people have stored up thousands, even a lot of years, while the poor work, borrow or steal to get enough time to live.

In the ghetto named Dayton, an industrial-trying time zone where Will (played by Justin Timberlake) lives, most people only scrape along a few additional hours as at 28, he has managed to place 3 additional years on his life, but the price of respiration keeps intensifying. What set him back an hour yesterday could take 2 hours off his life tomorrow.

You can hand over the time with a kind of secret handshake, that is a very little too straightforward. Nearly every twist and turn of the plot looks designed to remind of that most elementary truth where every moment alive puts you one step nearer to death. In this new age it’s referred to as “timing out,” means dead. Therefore the stress started by all that ticking time too quickly drains away.
With the stress on action, deep observations about the world are encapsulated into cheesy catchphrases, like “For few to be immortal, several must die.” Whenever Will and Leon gravely spout these aphorisms, the characters’ credibility is undermined. Seyfried in distinction, manages to sell her rebellious wealthy-girl role. She’s the one fish-out-of-water dashing through these ghetto time zones, and her initiation into a world where people run right down to their last minutes makes her a satisfying, dynamic character.
