Walker's performance - along with the film - gets more and more engrossing.
While uneven, the film is uniquely involving - right down to a final shot that will break your heart into a million pieces.
For those who wish to see [Walker] at his best, "Hours" is worth the time.
Hurricane Katrina has already been pretty thoroughly mined for documentaries and fictional stories, but "Hours" holds your interest nonetheless.
Most of the movie elicits tense empathy, which builds to a genuinely nerve-wracking sense of dread.
Take away the on-the-nose title and some half-hearted stabs at symbolism, and what's left is a B-thriller of the "they don't make 'em like they used to" variety.
Walker has never been known for expressive performances, but he wears grief convincingly, letting it ooze out slowly while keeping his concentration at the task at hand.
Hours goes from a passable, decent, (but hardly thrilling) thriller to a film that gives your eye-rolling muscles a total workout.
Taking place over the course of two hopeless days, Walker's performance is truly special.
Could've marked a turning point in Paul Walker's career to more interesting and demanding projects post-age-40.
A lean, palpably tense thriller. Paul Walker gives the best performance of his career.
As one of the last completed roles by [Paul Walker]...it feels nice to be able to luxuriate in the actor's presence. In another set of circumstances, Hours could have proved to other filmmakers what the actor was capable of
One of Paul Walker's last films is this suspenseful thriller that can be quite tense in a minimalist way when not contrived or melodramatic, yet it could have been set in any city hit by a fictional hurricane without the need of using a real tragedy as a plot device.
In one of Paul Walker's best performances to date, "Hours" follows a man after the loss of his wife during childbirth and he must keep his baby breathing in the incubator with no power during the events of Hurricane Katrina. The premise of this film sold me right from the start and it was just the film that he needed to boost his performance stature. Taking place mainly in one building for the entire film, this low-budget film is a true marvel and really something to strive to be able to pull off. While this film has a few script issues and there are a few predictable moments, Paul Walker's performance vibrates off the screen and the emotion in this film is handled beautifully. Almost every scene made me tear up, because they knew how to handle it. Aside from it's few faults, "Hours" is a great film!
Every second counts.
Great final Film to an Excellent Actor!!! This film amazed me as I am not normally into this genre. I went in not expecting anything really but by the end I was captivated and really cheering Paul Walker on. Paul Walker does an amazing job and he made the film for me, his emotion and grit shone through. By the end I found myself emotionally attached to the story and really immersed in the story. This is a survival story above all and I applaud Paul Walker in his role. May he Rest in Peace!
