San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
Coming now, today, In Time is not just satisfying. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's important, because that would overstate it, but it certainly feels like part of the national conversation. It arrives in theaters at a time when people are camped out in New York saying the same things as the people in the movie. It's weird the way films often anticipate the near future.

In Time has so much style and energy that it comes across as an act of boldness rather than just a liberal-minded tract, though of course, it's that too. If there were ever a movie made for the 99 percent, this is it.

In Time has about 50 minutes of good movie in it. Alas, the sci-fi thriller runs nearly twice that length, and despite a terrific concept that could make for an "Inception" for 2011, we get "Logan's Run" meets "Robin Hood." And not the good parts.

The movie, I'm sad to report, has a majorly disappointing follow-through. It turns into a noisy, squalling chase movie.

The movie tries to do for forearms what the loosely similar science-fiction romance "The Adjustment Bureau'' attempted for men's hats: make them chic.

In Time is that kind of movie: Philip K. Dick for knuckleheads.

Wall Street Journal

Andrew Niccol's In Time looks great, sounds stilted and plays like a clever videogame with too many rules.

Pretty cast. Potent premise. Piss-poor execution. And so dies In Time.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Todd McCarthy
As novel and absorbing as In Time is in several respects, however, Andrew Niccol's latest conception of an altered but still recognizable future feels undernourished in other ways that are not as salutary, preventing the film from fulfilling its strong inherent promise.

New York Daily News

By Joe Neumaier
Sadly, for 99% of its running time, this muddled sci-fi drama is filled with enough overplotting, bad acting and riddle-speak dialogue to stop a clock.
