Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a great ride."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"Out of Time seems out of another time and place."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"Best for older teens and their parents."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"...tremendously entertaining throughout..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The suspense is killing, but the sense of being in the hands of a skilled storyteller is relaxing, too. Out of Time is a blast without making you work for it."
‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
"I just wish they would have tried a little harder with the script."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Franklin is known for being good with actors, but Out Of Time also reveals his flair with machines, which too often dominate the plots of latter-day noirs."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"This generically titled mystery thriller is slow to catch on but holds joyous moments of suspense once it kicks in."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Second-rate Hitchcock."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"I have a policy about life insurance policies in movies like this: Don't be the beneficiary. Just don't do it. Nothing good ever comes of it."
‑ Austin O'Connor, Lowell Sun
"A consistent pleasure."
‑ Charles Taylor, Salon.com
"A well-performed, perfectly watchable thriller that's nonetheless as generic as its title."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"In spite of decent performances from the main cast, Carl Franklin's thriller is listless and very weak."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Franklin seems to be aware that the audience knows what is going to happen."
‑ Dragan Antulov, Draxblog Movie Reviews
"O roteiro acaba negligenciando um aspecto que deveria ser importante para o herói: a inteligência."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
