Retreat vs In Time (Part 2)

The first plan was to write about Retreat this month and write about In Time next month, the arrangement is to prevent too many Cillian Murphy posts in one month…however, things changed after I saw In Time few hours ago. I just couldn’t delay the fact that both Retreat and In time totally lived up to my expectation, one in a good way while the other in a bad way.
This is going to be my longest post ever, this has 3 pages:
Page 1: Review of Retreat
Page 2: Review of In Time (Don’t read it if you don’t want to be spoiled, it’s more like a rant rather than review)
Page 3: Retreat Vs In Time Part 2
In September 1, 2011…I had written why I think Retreat will win over In Time even before I see both movies.
Now that I have seen it, Retreat indeed won over In Time.
As I have predicted, In Time has a weak plot. In story: Retreat won by a mile. Retreat is unpredictable while In Time so predictable. Thumbs up for Carl Tibbetts, hoping to see his other movie in the future.
In Cillian Murphy’s character: Raymond Leon has stronger character…and for this, In Time won over Retreat.
Fine looking leader!
For the other actors…sorry for In Time, I still much much prefer Thandie Newton and Jamie Bell than Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake. So Retreat Won.
My suggestion is….if you can manage to watch one of them…choose Retreat!!! an independent movie which is much better than the blockbuster one.
This tumblr post by Inception365 is so straight to the point
