December 14, 2013
A lean, palpably tense thriller. Paul Walker gives the best performance of his career.

December 13, 2013
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

December 13, 2013
While uneven, the film is uniquely involving - right down to a final shot that will break your heart into a million pieces.

[Paul Walker's] need to show off, which marred his turn in the 2005 whatzit 'Running Scared,' usually disappears, he relaxes and suddenly he seems like an actor who could only have gotten better.

December 12, 2013
Hurricane Katrina has already been pretty thoroughly mined for documentaries and fictional stories, but "Hours" holds your interest nonetheless.
December 12, 2013
Represents a change of pace for the performer, who delivers some of his best work in this odd thriller, which somehow transfers the bomb-on-a-bus concept of "Speed" to an infant-on-a-incubator ride of suspense and heartbreaking stakes.

December 12, 2013
Most of the movie elicits tense empathy, which builds to a genuinely nerve-wracking sense of dread.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 12, 2013
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.

December 11, 2013
Hours has a great B-movie premise, but at 97 minutes, the strain of keeping the story going, and throwing more obstacles in Nolan's way, starts to show.
December 10, 2013
Here's a hero who's maybe like you, suffering like you might but also scraping through like you hope you could.
December 9, 2013
An ingeniously simple setup is cunningly exploited for maximum suspense in Hours, a slow-building, consistently engrossing drama.
December 9, 2013
Tense and absorbing.
December 2, 2013
A solidly-directed thriller that could easily appeal to a wider audience than the arthouse crowd.

Hours goes from a passable, decent, (but hardly thrilling) thriller to a film that gives your eye-rolling muscles a total workout.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
December 13, 2013
Called upon to carry almost the entire movie by himself, Walker has a tough time mustering genuine emotion, although he does better in the few legitimately tense scenes.
