An implausible but still awfully fun noirish pot-boiler.

Washington's complex cool and the question of making it come out right holds you in its grasp to the end.

It has about as much logic as Iraq apparently has weapons of mass destruction.

"Out of Time" moves so swiftly that you won't look at your watch during the two hours that this taught thriller unfolds.

A peppy and perspiring timewaster, but we don't mind.

Out of Time is good time pulp nonsense seductively directed by Carl Franklin and acted with unusual vulnerability by Denzel Washington.

Washington's performance -- and the clever manipulations of the script (by David Collard) -- keeps Out of Time taut and credible.

Carefully crafted and acted, Out of Time is an enjoyable but hardly compelling thriller that could have used a little more tension.
Robert Wilonsky
Dallas Observer
October 7, 2003
It's a lark, silly and taut and loaded down with zooming cameras and quick-cut edits and other pulpy conventions that signify playfulness more than pressure but keep us engaged and entertained.

Austin Chronicle

We've seen Washington as this character before, in Fallen, The Bone Collector, The Siege -- not the same character, but similar.

I just wish they would have tried a little harder with the script.

(The movie is) like one of those little kids' puzzles with only six big pieces; it doesn't take much to fit them together.

Out of time simply ran out of sense for it to be more than another disposable pic.
