Movie Info

In true Hitchcock style, this taut thriller chronicles the exploits of an ordinary citizen thrust by circumstance into an extraordinary situation. Widower Gene Watson is a regular enough guy who truly loves his daughter. Suddenly an enigmatic, sinister fellow kidnaps the girl. He then gives Watson 90 minutes to murder California Governor Eleanor Grant. If Watson fails, his daughter will die. Most of the film was shot on location in the Bonaventure Hotel, Los Angeles.more

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 tensão desejada, que, como se não 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
