The film's central metaphor is so sublimely obvious it feels like it's been stolen from a forgotten Star Trek script.

In Time is worth seeing and it is clearly made with passion, but it doesn't have the underlying vitality that makes the best science fiction immortal.

In Time is stylistically entertaining, but the story could have been a lot more developed.

Slipping on an expensive suit, Timberlake's likeable lead fits in nicely. He has good chemistry with Seyfried's wide-eyed sidekick... The action is solid too, thanks to those constant deadlines.

It's original, it's compelling, and it's completely mediocre.

Overall, [its] a solid, well-acted, well-conceived and well-staged science fiction film of the classic, quietly cerebral Outer Limits/Twilight Zone variety.

If you're just after popcorn thrills, then In Time is not a complete waste of time, but future generations will not remember it.

Interesting as the film is as a science fiction concept and dull as it is as a political allegory, the Christian understands that there is a fundamental flaw in the story, namely that W.H. Auden was wrong.

I enjoyed the film thoroughly, and realized afterward how well Niccol had drawn me into his imagined world. The first postscreening sight of a digital clock gave me the autonomic ghastlies.

The final act kind of just falls apart and the big reveal about the time keeper's backstory fell flat.

In Time, while highly entertaining, doesn't live up to its premise.
June 22, 2013
Don't let the ads fool you: It has a lot on its mind.

In Time is so crammed with provocative ideas it begins to feel over-crowded.
March 4, 2013
One long, extended chase sequence interspersed with awkward flirting.
December 29, 2012
Even with its thoughtful nods to "Bonnie & Clyde" and "Les Miserables," "In time" never delivers that transcendent "Blade Runner" moment, and never rises above cult classic to simple classic.
September 22, 2012
There's a lot to like about In Time, but it misses the mark for being an overly memorable experience and ends up being just an adequate sci-fi flick.
September 18, 2012
"In Time" gets points for putting forth an interesting concept, but because of Niccol's inability to utilize that concept, we get a film that ends up going nowhere.

Worry, worry and watch the clock, for 'In Time' wastes what time you've got.

Andrew Niccol's dystopia never really feels like anything other than a depthless, stylish sleek surface.
February 12, 2012
Starts out great, almost like a pseudo sequel to Niccol's other sci-fi drama Gattaca, but slowly unravels into a mindless chase picture that never really captures any real depth or meaning.
