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

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.
Clint Morris

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

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.

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.

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

Decent, perfectly watchable science-fiction, reasonably well-made and featuring a formidable cast.

If not a home run, then at least a solid base hit.

You will spend an hour and a half feeling adequately entertained if you're a sucker for sci-fi-run-run-run flicks.

There's a real focus on the story and its main character.

Tells (the story) with such atmospheric ballast that shrugging off the plot's persnickety problems is simply a matter of (being) in a shrugging mood.

Impostor is likely to be best appreciated by dedicated sci-fi fans, admirers of Dick in particular.

Has a certain ghoulish fascination, and generates a fair amount of B-movie excitement.

A decent sci-fi film that is reminiscent of Total Recall.
