看吧！植入身體內的電子儀器就是不放過我！繼上上周的Total Recall後，小編我歪頭一想，腦中立即又浮出了「In Time」這部意義深遠的科幻片。不過當初吸引我買票入場的真的不是皮膚裡的時鐘，而是氣質很優的女主角亞曼達塞佛瑞。
In the near future, humans have been genetically modified so that they stop aging at the age of 25. After 25, an internal clock starts in them and time becomes the onlycurrency. A person could practically live forever if he earns time.
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.
"For a few to be immortal, many must die", a line from the film, can be replaced with: for a few to be insanely rich, many must be made poor. When we look around, that is exactly the state of our world today as Niccol points out.
