[S]ure to become a B-movie sci-fi classic... unpredictable, sinister and thought-provoking -- with very cool bathroom fixtures.

A great cast can't save the poor script.
December 30, 2006
A miasma of indifferent screenwriting and wobbly performances.
June 24, 2006
The performances are solid, with Sinise's sobriety and lack of histrionics, especially, making him an anchoring and sympathetic presence.

What happened here?

The history behind Impostor is perhaps more compelling than the film itself.

Originally slated as a 40 minute installment in a sci-fi trilogy film, Impostor should have been left that way.
February 4, 2003
There's one thing you can say about Imposter - it does have the appropriate title. Fleder's ill-conceived actioner flick poses as a thriving sci-fi adventure but its real identity is that of a glossy-looking, predictable lukewarm futuristic yarn.

A worthy successor to those sci-fi B-movies of old even if it is nowhere in the league of such Dick-inspired films as Total Recall and Blade Runner.
October 2, 2002
Worth the ticket price -- mainly for the surprise ending and set design -- and most of its 96 minutes is absorbing.
September 18, 2002
An uneven look into a grim future that doesn't come close to the level of intelligence and visual splendour that can be seen in other films based on Philip K. Dick stories.
August 17, 2002
It's edgy, fast-paced, and if you don't take it too seriously, a lot of fun.
August 12, 2002
Sinise is quite good as the guy trying desperately to prove that he's innocent, even as he has nagging self-doubts.
July 20, 2002
...too little material for too much screen time.
June 21, 2002
While it's entertaining at the time, you probably won't remember too much of it the morning after.
June 18, 2002
The film sags in its second act, but it's interesting, high-IQ sci-fi, and if ever a film spoke to America's post-September 11 paranoia, this one does.
June 17, 2002
Once the movie abandons ideas, it falls flat -- it's not well made enough to engage us with shallowness.
June 10, 2002
This potentially stylish cyberpunk movie is turned into nothing more than an endless series of tiresome chase sequences.
May 22, 2002
If Blair Witch Project's hand-held camera work made you feel sick, this one will have you throwing up in your popcorn.
