    Nick of Time starring Johnny Depp is a bore and a passable thriller at best. "Real terror in real time": that's what Nick of Time promises. Unfortunately, that's not what it delivers. Sure, the film unfolds with one minute of screen time equaling one minute of theater time, but there's no hint of tension. About the only thing John Badham's lamely-directed thriller has in common with an Alfred Hitchcock production is the blatant rip-off of a camera shot from Vertigo. Nick of Time relies on a bunch of easily-predicted "twists" to keep it moving. This motion picture rarely makes sense, even when you're not thinking too deeply about what's going on.

    I just caught this on tv. The problem I have with the story is so they need this random guy to go and commit the assassination so they kidnap daughter to motivate him. However along the way they have so many inside people including the governors own security detail that are in on the plot and her own husband that I don't see why they need this guy when anyone of them could've poisoned her rig the car for a bad accident etc. this makes the plot really not believable and contrived.

    Not a bad movie. Just it’s main fault is the miscasting of Johnny Depp. Very silly and predictable but is fun at points. Not Depp’s best but certainly not his worst

    This is an under appreciated gem. Set in real time and with JD and Walken heading the cast, this is a top notch thriller. Walken is at his unnerved best poking and prodding JD's straight man. For fans of these 2 actors this is a rare delight. Ignore the low score and give it a go.

    Very interesting and well done; only mystery is why everyone hated it.

    Nick of Time has an interesting presence and it's a sure nail biter, but it also has its issues. With bland white washed lighting work and numerous plot holes that could sink a boat, the movie struggles to be ultimately different from every other action movie that has shown up.

    This movie basically sucks and makes no sense, but is totally worth watching just for Christopher Walken, who's absolutely hilarious and unhinged here.
