About Time's premise provides for some interesting scenes but after it's all said and done, one can't help but feel like there was so much more potential. The story is split into two major plot lines of romance and father / son bonding. Maybe the film would have clicked better with a more coherent storyline. The film has a major lacking of anything spectacular whether it is acting by the cast or creativity with the cinematography. In the end many of the dramatic scenes are foreseen and lack in impact due to the very straight forward direction of the story, which evidently halters from the emotional attachment. All in all an average movie that produces a few laughs but is somewhat dull at times. The run time of two hours could have been cut to around 100 minutes.
