A great cast can't save the poor script.

A miasma of indifferent screenwriting and wobbly performances.

The performances are solid, with Sinise's sobriety and lack of histrionics, especially, making him an anchoring and sympathetic presence.

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.

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.

Worth the ticket price -- mainly for the surprise ending and set design -- and most of its 96 minutes is absorbing.
| Original Score: 3/5

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.
| Original Score: 60/100

It's edgy, fast-paced, and if you don't take it too seriously, a lot of fun.

Sinise is quite good as the guy trying desperately to prove that he's innocent, even as he has nagging self-doubts.

...too little material for too much screen time.

While it's entertaining at the time, you probably won't remember too much of it the morning after.

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.

Once the movie abandons ideas, it falls flat -- it's not well made enough to engage us with shallowness.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

This potentially stylish cyberpunk movie is turned into nothing more than an endless series of tiresome chase sequences.

If Blair Witch Project's hand-held camera work made you feel sick, this one will have you throwing up in your popcorn.

Impostor isn't especially scintillating science fiction on its own, but in the light of our ongoing national crisis, it seems eerily prescient.

Has all the values of a straight-to-video movie, but because it has a bigger-name cast, it gets a full theatrical release.
