Franklin is known for being good with actors, but Out Of Time also reveals his flair with machines, which too often dominate the plots of latter-day noirs.

Out of Time isn't entirely memorable, and it contains enough plot holes to drive a train through, but the movie is almost all pleasure, stand-up Hollywood entertainment without a trace of pretense, served straight up.

You gotta figure something's wrong when the best part of a Denzel Washington movie is John Billingsley.

Soggy at the beginning, silly at the end, but often riveting in between, Out of Time is another Denzel Washington movie that's nowhere near as good as Denzel Washington.

An overly constructed little thriller that squeezes a fair amount of suspense out of its far-fetched plot.

What little mystery finds its way onto the screen isn't much of a mystery at all. By Act 2, we know who did what to whom and why.

[S]uspension of disbelief, always necessary in a thriller, is required here in wholesale quantities. But in a movie like Out of Time I'm not looking for realism, I'm looking for a sense of style brought to genre material.

Gripping crime thriller that reunites Devil in a Blue Dress star Denzel Washington with director Carl Franklin and, in many ways, reinvents the genre.

Working from a tight script by first-time screenwriter Dave Collard, Franklin moves the story at a brisk pace as his often-in-motion camera captures the sultry sensuality of a backwater coastal town.
