I don't really have anything to say about the movie itself, as I've never even heard of it, but it got me thinking about something...What if science becomes so advanced that it can physically regenerate the cells that cause the aging process? The vast population that will result will leave everyone else with a problem. If all of these people cannot be supported, or support themselves, then something must be done. Is it possible that at some point in the future the government will have to start eliminating people?
It sounds far-fetched now, but something like this could very well happen. I suppose that perhaps they could simply not allow certain people to stop the process of aging, but that too seems like a difficult choice, although not as bad as outright killing someone. It is something to think about at least.
But science would have to be extremely advanced to be able to predict exactly how long a person had left to live, unless the clock was fitted with a device that actually killed the person when their time ran out.

"In Time" is the name of the movie.
Not sure if it was called Fair Game in other countries, but,here in the U.S. It is called "In Time."
Decent movie tho...interesting premise...although I wouldn't like it in real life.
