An overly constructed little thriller that squeezes a fair amount of suspense out of its far-fetched plot.

Matthias "Matt" Lee Whitlock (Denzel Washington) is the respected Chief of Police of the fictional small town of Banyan Key, Florida. He has recently executed a successful, high-profile drug bust that turned up $550,000 in drug money. Although he enjoys his job, his drinking while on duty is an obvious character flaw, exacerbated by his pending divorce from his wife, homicide detective Alex Diaz Whitlock (Eva Mendes). Matt is currently seeing local resident Anne Merai-Harrison (Sanaa Lathan) - whose husband Chris (Dean Cain), a former professional quarterback turned security guard, abuses her, finds out that Anne has just been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Anne intends to reward Matt's loyalty to her by making him the sole beneficiary of her $1,000,000 life insurance policy. Matt tries to find a way to give Anne some hope and suggests that she should travel to Switzerland to undergo a newly developed treatment. The problem is that Anne has been living beyond her means and does not have any money. Desperate to help her, Matt bends the rules and lends her the $550,000 so she can make the trip. When the $550,000 goes up in flames in a suspicious house fire that supposedly kills Anne and Chris, Matt finds himself in a great deal of trouble. Not only is the money now gone, but Matt knows that even though he is innocent, circumstantial evidence - such as the insurance policy and the fact that he had been seeing Anne - could make him the prime suspect...

"Out of Time" is an updated attempt to make something similar to the great "No Way Out" with Kevin Costner, but hardly reaches the heights of the latter film. There´s a sense of an homage to film noir in the storyline and vibe serving us an ok neo-noir thriller, and with all the intriguing side plots it keeps you on your toes during the running time. Washington and a stunning Mendes has sparks and both put on a pretty good performance, while Cain and the oh so lovely Lathan not really get that much to work with, but tries to do the best with what they got. The setting of Florida is nice and director Carl Franklin uses it in a convincing and visual way. The balance between being a sort of "intelligent" thriller and action drama is ok. There´s clichés for sure and the ending is not that of a major surprise (like in "No Way Out" when you saw it the first time). "Out of Time" is ok, nothing more nothing less.

This is not a great movie but a very entertaining one, mostly cuz it's hilarious to watch Denzel sweat off a pound every minute. The unintentional humor helped a lot too.

I wasn't exoecting alot from this film but by the middle of the movie it took me by surprise. Great movie to enjoy, Denzel Washington proves why he is one of the good action movies icons. This movie brings suspense and action to the extreme, I love this type of movies. As that being said, for this being a very well made movie, with excellent action and suspense, I give " Out Of Time " a B-.

Out of time is a very enjoyable and consuming race against time kind of movie, even if it doesn't offer anything to differentiate it from other movies of the genre.

A weak thriller that is just as likely to put you to sleep as it is to keep your attention. It's already been forgotten. (First and only viewing - 7/17/2015)

Nothing really all that special and the twists aren't too surprising either.

Good suspense/thriller.

A by the book thriller that relies too much on Denzel and the hook. It's not completely ridiculous, but nothing memorable either.

Denzel is always great

Denzel Washington stars as Matt Whitlock who is a local police chief in a small town of Florida. Though he might not be the most ethical cop he finds himself in hot water when it looks like he is set up for insurance fraud. He realizes he must solve the case and figure out how he got setup before his team does, all while keeping covering his tracks. Out of Time was an interesting and entertaining cop thriller that although could have had more action it was solid overall.

Ein durchschnittlicher Thriller ohne grosse Überraschungen!
Denzel Washington spielt wie immer solide und ist in diesem Film auch ziemlich selbstironisch. Eva Mendes gibt einen guten Gegenpart ab, gegenüber Washington. Lathan und Dean Cain sind dagegen völlig unterfordert. Billingsley bringt als einziger, eine kleine Lockerung in dem Twist mit seinem Sarkasmus. Sonst bringt der Film nicht viel Neues mit und man wartet lang auf eine Wendung.
Fazit: Gute Darstellerriege die nicht ganz auf ihre Kosten kommen!

Starts out as a melodrama with an implausible plot, but then turns into a fun B-movie. Out of Time is overall silly, but also effectively suspenseful and Denzel Washington carries the film with his star power.
