There are only so many puns that one can make in a world where an individual’s “time” serves as both “life” and “money,” but “In Time” somehow manages to nail them all. Keeping time, saving time, spending time, take your time, lifetime, killing time—it’s 110 minutes of punning and not much else.
“Contagion” succeeds as a film about a virus, but not so much as one about people. With ingredients like a stellar cast, a talented writer, exotic locations, an Oscar-winning director, and a proven premise, this movie should have been capable of more than just holding its own.
