Nobody should waste a minute of their life on this baloney.

Niccol's metaphor gets silly fast.

This Bonnie and Clyde couldn't have less on screen chemistry if Clyde was the orangutan from Every Which Way but Loose.

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.

...the movie's failure [is] especially disappointing given the enduring success of 1997's Gattaca.

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.

In Time fills its dynamic, sprawling universe with about as much character and drama as a half-hour game of Sim City.

It's a relatively simple but ingenious concept. Niccol, however, seems unable to get the story going without letting the film trip over itself.

The endless chases on foot and by car are unsuccessful attempts to prevent the audience thinking about the plot.

It's all just big-budget dress-up in a futurescape that reeks of phoniness.

In Time is The Adjustment Bureau without the charm and sexual chemistry.

Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried play for time in a monotonous, one-note thriller
November 3, 2011
A waste of time.
November 2, 2011
It's not a total waste of your time. But boy will you wish Niccol had spent more of his on it.
November 2, 2011
Despite strong performances from a likeable cast, this squanders its potentially interesting premise and is ultimately something of a disappointment thanks to a dumbed-down script, a lack of imagination and a tendency towards heavy-handed symbolism.
November 2, 2011
Attempts to be both thriller and political allegory but ultimately falls someway short of being either.
November 2, 2011
If time's so valuable, why does Seyfried run everywhere in six-inch heels?
November 1, 2011
Actually, In Time's not that bad. It's just not that good, either.
November 1, 2011
Such an original sci-fi concept that has a potent economic allegory that rouses interest in the first part then fizzles away as the action and serviceable acting dominates ...
