When I watch this movie, it reminds me to one of Malay proverbs; “Masa itu Emas” which emphasizes that time is a precious thing. This movie is about a man who receive a century of time from a guy change everyone’s life. Time is an important as it replaces money and your life. I think this concept is amazing because I never see any kind of movie like this before and it is quite scary when you know you will die when your time has finished. There are a few things that I found interesting from this movie.
My first point, I would like to discuss about social hierarchy from this movie as rich people has many time(money) and live in different time zones than the others. If you are poor, you will stay at lowest time zone which there are many crimes occur and people are forced to work so hard to live. I feel pity to the poor people because they work so hard to increase their time but end up their time are stolen by "Minutemen" (time-robbing thugs) which is legal to the authorities (the authorities know that gang but they didn’t take any action towards them). At the end of this movie, a man (Justin Timberlake) manages to steal one-million-years capsules from the richest person and donates it to everyone. It is so satisfying to see that everyone is moving from the last time zone to others. However, if everyone has moved out from the lowest time zone, the rich people should develop it into more advance like the others or there will be extra population in certain time zones.
I will watch this movie again because it reminds to the importance of time because you can become poor into a second when you didn’t take good care of your time. Thank you for reading and feel free to drop your comments below.
