This was indeed a waste of time. I didn't really care about any of the characters anyway. They were all fairly mean and/or dumb and the whole reason for Olivia Wilde's character to even be there was paper thin. In fact, the whole movie had a kind of mean spirited vibe to it.
The plot, if there really ever was one, was an incoherent mess and the conflict was wrapped up way too easily. The redemption of the villainous character, played by Russell Crowe, in "3:10 To Yuma" was handled so much better than Harrison Ford's evil cattle baron here.
As for Olivia Wilde herself, she looked stunning for the few brief minutes she had in "In Time," but in this movie her looks (and acting talent for that matter) were pretty much wasted.
Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!
