Impostor Reviews

June 24, 2006
The performances are solid, with Sinise's sobriety and lack of histrionics, especially, making him an anchoring and sympathetic presence.
October 15, 2002
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.
January 10, 2002
Feels less like a cousin to Blade Runner than like a bottom-feeder sequel in the Escape From New York series.

Pushes the same old cliches in Blade Runner packaging.

Everything about Impostor ... is both familiar and profoundly unoriginal.
January 7, 2002
In the end, alas, the obvious interests of an actor of Sinise's range and depth are subsumed to the blunt demands of a standardized chase movie.
January 6, 2002
Unless there are zoning ordinances to protect your community from the dullest science fiction, Impostor is opening today at a theater near you.

Impostor isn't really a movie, it's only impersonating one.

Includes too much obvious padding.

January 4, 2002
In the transition from prescient work of fiction to pummelling popcorn flick, Impostor seems to have had its soul hijacked.
January 4, 2002
It's another clone that looks good but has no soul.
January 4, 2002
This movie is something of an impostor itself, stretching and padding its material in a blur of dead ends and distracting camera work.

January 4, 2002
Impostor is a step down for director Gary Fleder.
January 4, 2002
It's a big production, but the movie feels somewhat counterfeit.
January 4, 2002

The movie is so thoughtlessly assembled.
January 4, 2002
Impostor is really little more than an extended Outer Limits episode.

January 4, 2002
Looks like a nifty little sci-fi film noir but is actually a noisy mess.
January 4, 2002
You will spend an hour and a half feeling adequately entertained if you're a sucker for sci-fi-run-run-run flicks.

A thoroughly acceptable sci-fi genre pic.

January 3, 2002
The editing is pointlessly hyperkinetic, never settling for a single camera angle when five, cut together in rapid succession, are available, and cramming nearly every scene with jump-cuts, flashbacks and jarring perspectives.

January 3, 2002
A relentlessly dull chase flick with an inexplicably high-toned cast.
January 3, 2002
An amalgam of The Fugitive, Blade Runner, and Total Recall, only without much energy or tension.
January 3, 2002
Impostor starts as a tribute to Philip K. Dick and winds up selling its soul to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
January 3, 2002
A so-so, made-for-TV something posing as a real movie.
