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.

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

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.

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.
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.

Andrew Niccol continues to be the go-to guy for using smartly executed science-fiction/fantasy concepts in the service of expressing ideas rather than bang-up action.

Clever and unsettling.

When time really is money, it's hard not to keep looking at your watch. Fortunately, viewing this film won't have you looking at yours.

... it works pretty well if you don't look too closely ...

An interesting, literal 'living on borrowed time' premise doesn't quite live up to its ambition but cool film work and Justin Timberlake keep things interesting.
November 5, 2011
The movie may not probe as deeply into its subject as desired, but it's nevertheless an enjoyable watch, full of propulsive action and intriguing scenarios.
November 4, 2011
Timberlake is fine but not as good as he was in The Social Network because he doesn't get the chances. It's a pity, but this sort of thing needs a brighter director.
November 4, 2011
A playful caper that ticks along on the strength of its cast.
November 4, 2011
One of the film's stronger threads poses a key question: even if you could extend your life by decades, would you really want to?
November 4, 2011
Stylish and original but its confusing middle and overbearing moral message will have you looking at the time.
November 4, 2011
In Time is a neat concept, stylishly executed, with some well-orchestrated action sequences to paper over a few cracks in wrier/director Niccol's logic.
November 3, 2011
It's a plot with intriguing issues touched upon, including mortality, the class system and that knowing how much time we have left to live can affect our judgments.
