Critic Reviews for Nick of Time

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (14)

The most preposterous movie in theaters isn't the Ace Ventura sequel (or even Money Train) but this wanna-be nail-biter.

Top Critic

O artifício narrativo do "tempo real", usado com bem mais eficácia em Matar ou Morrer e Festim Diabólico, acaba se revelando insuficiente para gerar a tensăo desejada, que, como se năo bastasse, é destruída de vez no terrível ato final do filme.

September 5, 2008
Cinema em Cena

An exciting albeit illogical tale of mystery and suspense...

August 9, 2007
Film Threat

A fast and furious 90 minutes that doesn't waste a second.

October 9, 2005
Fantastica Daily

A slick, highly imaginative thriller

Audience Reviews for Nick of Time

A very average movie, a political conspiracy Thriller, with a corny plot. No Johnny Depp stamp on this one and not one he'll be remembered for, watchable, but very forgettable

Ninety minutes. Six bullets. No choice.
