    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.

  • M. E. Russell

    To my thinking, the grand simplicity of the metaphor is a big part of In Time's oddly retro sci-fi charm. Niccol is practicing the old-school craft of making a barn-broad alternate-reality that forces you to think about the way we all consensually agree to participate in systems -- even when those systems are hopelessly screwed up.

  • Roger Ebert

    Justin Timberlake continues to demonstrate that he is a real actor, with screen presence. But after the precise timing and intelligence he brought to "The Social Network," it's a little disappointing to find him in a role that requires less. He has a future in the movies.

  • Melissa Anderson

    A pleasing, often rousing movie for the 99 percent, In Time is not without flaws.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Andrea Gronvall

    Clever and unsettling.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    It's a fascinating philosophical conceit delivered as a slick, hyper-stylized conspiracy yarn, juicy enough to deliver on both fronts, provided you don't ask too many questions.

    Variety Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    So, yeah - even if In Time descends from its gripping and thought-provoking premise into a mediocre chase thriller before it's over, it's still pretty damn satisfying to watch in the current climate.

  • James Berardinelli

    The problem with In Time, to the extent that it is a problem, is that an intriguing premise turns into window dressing for a somewhat routine "Bonnie & Clyde"-meets-"Robin Hood" action thriller with car chases, heists, and gunplay.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Along the way there are definitely some pleasing distractions, just not enough to obscure the growing realization that a much better picture could have been made, and wasn't. Many films never have a chance, but this one did – it's an opportunity wasted.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    All in all, In Time is not just stylish but surprisingly substantial. From now on, you'll think twice every time you hear the phrase "rollover minutes."

    Washington Post Full Review
  • 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 that could make for an "Inception" for 2011, we get "Logan's Run" meets "Robin Hood." And not the good parts.

  • Michael Phillips

    I like a lot of the film despite its drawbacks; its violence isn't rote or numbing, and there's a simplicity and elegance to the digital-countdown effect.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    "Gattaca" director Andrew Niccol's sense of the zeitgeist is as on the money as ever with In Time, a sci-fi parable that plays like "Occupy Wall Street: The Movie."

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    If you can overlook the lack of logic inherent in its central conceit, In Time makes for a fun, stylish piece of speculative sci-fi.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Sara Maria Vizcarrondo

    The pace is solid and engaging without putting you on the edge of your seat-you won't be looking at your watch, which means it's at least worth the time spent.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The tick tick tock of the mortal clock gives the science-fiction thriller In Time its slick, sweet premise.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

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

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    It's a great idea that Niccol can't translate into a great movie.

    Time Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The writer-director Andrew Niccol is best known for writing "The Truman Show," another movie that got carried away by doomsday deep-think. The deep-think here is even sillier.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Kevin C. Johnson

    After a nifty setup, In Time mostly fails to deliver as it gets lamer by the minute.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

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

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    What's missing are the kind of moments that actually matter, the ones that are so gripping that you want desperately for time to stop - to savor them, to feel the fear, the passion, the regret. Ah, well … maybe next time.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Travers

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

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    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.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Steven Rea

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

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Much like Niccol's "Gattaca," in which genetic perfection rather than time was the weapon a small group of snobby, unworthy elites used to hold down the meek masses, In Time is a chilly, stiff movie where clever ideas are delivered as self-righteous sermons.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • 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.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    Justin Timberlake can't elevate what amounts to relatively simplistic, formulaic material, but his headlining turn exhibits sufficient charisma and wit to make In Time a passably diverting action-packed waste of time.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Niccol's attempts at satire are toothless.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Niccol's bizarrely stilted sci-fi thriller In Time, a movie so consistently flat-footed, with pauses between lines of dialogue so vast, that you begin to wonder if the whole thing might be a psychological experiment of some kind...Or has he just made a really dull movie?

    Slate Full Review
  • Kerry Lengel

    Kartheiser brings some zip and smarm to the proceedings as the villain with a million years in his vault, but it's not nearly enough to make In Time worth your time. Or your money.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    This future looks awfully passé: The stimulus didn't work out. Neither did 1917 Russia.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    They have some fun playacting at class warriors on the lam – and Seyfriend, it must be said, rocks a killer bob – but it's all just big-budget dress-up in a futurescape that reeks of phoniness.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • 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.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Niccol fashioned an uninspired and downright dull sci-fi gimmick and doesn't even explain how it happened.
