Decent, perfectly watchable science-fiction, reasonably well-made and featuring a formidable cast.

Basically a padded-out Outer Limits episode, repetitive chase scenes and useless exposition skim it past the 90-minute mark.

Boasting some of the most poorly staged and lit action in memory, Impostor is as close as you can get to an imitation movie.

...unworthy of a release beyond the direct-to-video market; it doesn't even deserve to carry a title with more than one syllable.

It's a mindless action flick with a twist -- far better suited to video-viewing than the multiplex.

Really does feel like a short stretched out to feature length.

tension developed in the movie's impressive first 15 minutes gradually dissolves as the plot lumbers forward with little purpose other than to fill time until the twist ending

By the time the predictable twists present themselves, you'll be hard pressed to find anyone watching who still cares. Or anyone still watching, for that matter.

Feels less like a cousin to Blade Runner than like a bottom-feeder sequel in the Escape From New York series.

Based on a story by Philip K. Dick, the new idiot-fest known as Impostor is about as entertaining as the second of two bologna sandwiches.

Pushes the same old cliches in Blade Runner packaging.

Everything about Impostor ... is both familiar and profoundly unoriginal.

The movie succumbs to being nothing more than a formulaic chase in the dark.

In the end, alas, the obvious interests of an actor of Sinise's range and depth are subsumed to the blunt demands of a standardized chase movie.

Stuffed with more filling than a Christmas turkey..., the movie lumbers along when it should be sprinting.

If not a home run, then at least a solid base hit.

Unless there are zoning ordinances to protect your community from the dullest science fiction, Impostor is opening today at a theater near you.

Though Impostor deviously adopts the guise of a modern motion picture, it too is a bomb.

Impostor isn't really a movie, it's only impersonating one.

Not a disaster by any means, but neither is it the futuristic parable it so clearly wants to be.
