Andrew Niccol's dystopia never really feels like anything other than a depthless, stylish sleek surface.
February 12, 2012
Starts out great, almost like a pseudo sequel to Niccol's other sci-fi drama Gattaca, but slowly unravels into a mindless chase picture that never really captures any real depth or meaning.

Nothing remarkable about this futuristic adventure that reminds me a bit of "Logan's Run." Paul Chambers, CNN.

Andrew Niccol continues to be the go-to guy for using smartly executed science-fiction/fantasy concepts in the service of expressing ideas rather than bang-up action.

The movie doesn't ask much of them, acting-wise, as it devolves into a chase film and doesn't spent any time examining all the thorny moral quandaries that it brings up.
January 27, 2012
The movie meanders in circles, frustratingly wasting its intriguing premise showcasing a story of Robin Hood meets Bonnie and Clyde-like heroic villains on the run that's as rudimentary as it is forgettable.
January 23, 2012
Prophetically arriving at about the same time as the Occupy Wall Street protests, the film couldn't be more relevant; unfortunately, it's also ham-handed.

Timberlake's charisma can't carry this but it's hard to think of anyone who could.

Like a 99 Percenter in the making, Will is stunned to hear from Henry that -- oh my god! -- the system of doling out time is rigged.

Nobody should waste a minute of their life on this baloney.
November 17, 2011
Niccol's metaphor gets silly fast.
November 13, 2011
This Bonnie and Clyde couldn't have less on screen chemistry if Clyde was the orangutan from Every Which Way but Loose.
November 11, 2011
This alternate world's hollowness drains the movie, blanching the noir. Cheesy, corny moments pop up throughout. Grinds its potential down into a clockwork chase movie.
November 10, 2011
...the movie's failure [is] especially disappointing given the enduring success of 1997's Gattaca.
November 10, 2011
Clever and unsettling.
November 10, 2011
In Time is the sort of middling sci-fi movie that you might come across a few months from now while looking for something to stream from the Internet.
November 10, 2011
The plot is too loose and the action too slack to keep the audience fully gripped. Timberlake and Seyfried are supposed to be the ones looking fretfully at their wrists to see how much time they have to go, not the viewer.
November 9, 2011
When time really is money, it's hard not to keep looking at your watch. Fortunately, viewing this film won't have you looking at yours.
November 8, 2011
... it works pretty well if you don't look too closely ...
