The suspenseful adventure that the film prioritizes offers solid entertainment and heightened immediacy.

There's nothing more precious than time. For that reason alone, I'll encourage you not to waste yours this weekend and avoid In Time.

Overall this film isn't heavy sci fi but it is a pretty fun ride and good sci fi film with some good use of themes and concepts that are resonating with current goings on in the world.

All in all, In Time lacked time to get the key ingredients - as well as practically everything else that could have made it great.

The film's central metaphor is so sublimely obvious it feels like it's been stolen from a forgotten Star Trek script.

In Time is worth seeing and it is clearly made with passion, but it doesn't have the underlying vitality that makes the best science fiction immortal.

In Time is stylistically entertaining, but the story could have been a lot more developed.

Slipping on an expensive suit, Timberlake's likeable lead fits in nicely. He has good chemistry with Seyfried's wide-eyed sidekick... The action is solid too, thanks to those constant deadlines.

It's original, it's compelling, and it's completely mediocre.

Overall, [its] a solid, well-acted, well-conceived and well-staged science fiction film of the classic, quietly cerebral Outer Limits/Twilight Zone variety.

If you're just after popcorn thrills, then In Time is not a complete waste of time, but future generations will not remember it.

Interesting as the film is as a science fiction concept and dull as it is as a political allegory, the Christian understands that there is a fundamental flaw in the story, namely that W.H. Auden was wrong.

I enjoyed the film thoroughly, and realized afterward how well Niccol had drawn me into his imagined world. The first postscreening sight of a digital clock gave me the autonomic ghastlies.

The final act kind of just falls apart and the big reveal about the time keeper's backstory fell flat.

In Time, while highly entertaining, doesn't live up to its premise.
June 20, 2013
In Time is so crammed with provocative ideas it begins to feel over-crowded.

One long, extended chase sequence interspersed with awkward flirting.

Even with its thoughtful nods to "Bonnie & Clyde" and "Les Miserables," "In time" never delivers that transcendent "Blade Runner" moment, and never rises above cult classic to simple classic.
