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...

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,...

USA Today

By Scott Bowles
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...

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
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...

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

Wall Street Journal

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

Rolling Stone

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

As novel and absorbing as In Time is in several respects, however, Andrew Niccol's latest conception of an altered but still recognizable...

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...

Interesting concept, but not without holes.

By miahz
The film's vision is interesting, this alternative future/present. Something that could be. But only if you don't look too deep below the surface. Stylized retro cars with electrical sound effects,...

Not enough time to Develope this one

By micahe
I'm a Justin Fan, but this film left a lot to be answered. I thought it was under developed. The ending felt like it was just getting started. The Characters were too obvious and too quick to catch...

In Time

By pmurr
Set in a dystopic future where "time" has replaced "money" as the currency, I really liked this movie for it's ideas. The film had some slow spots and the acting wasn't anything that will win an...

Good movie, thought provoking, cool intriguing

By nng
I had no clue what this movie was about but got a decent enough feeling about it. I'm sure the concept has been done before and better, but of all the lame weird movies out there this one was...

"In Time:" Keeps Time Perfectly...An Engaging & Entertaining Film

By Alon Patterson
Every now and then someone shows a little imagination out there in 'Hollywoodland.' Albeit rare, ever so often we get to see something new, or something old repurposed as new-like. Such is the case...

A must see for the sci-fi fan!

By alaskaman79
Great movie, does an awesome job of juxtaposing the future with the current social political and financial situation in this country. The rich control the wealth and can live for eons while the poor...

In Time, go see it!

By SuperDuperDad
I really enjoyed this movie, two thumbs up! The scene with the mother is incredibly powerful and pretty much sets the intensity for the rest of the film!...

It was a lot better than I thought it would be..a little slow in a few parts but for the most part kept my attention.....

In Time - a timeless Robin Hood duo

By globalreach
In a society that doesn't grow old, the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor, those with time enjoy life while those without scrounge for time just to survive. It's a new take on the fountain of...

A script written in the centuries

By bradleywaynebrown
Probably the most powerful aspect of In Time is the dialogue. It has classic lines reminiscent of philosophers of bygone times. This story is of greed and courage and echos the streets and parks of...
