A Disaster Of A Movie...Just Horrible...
8 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whose idea was this?! Who gave this movie that green light?! Probably the master of disaster, Irwin Allen! Irwin Allen's nickname suits him, this movie was an absolute disaster. When Time Ran Out is boring, ugly, and stupid. With big names like Paul Newman and William Holden, I thought that it was going to be at least entertaining. But is it entertaining? NO! The movie should be retitled: When Good Ideas Ran Out." This movie basically has almost nothing to recommend about it, it is a disaster of a movie, it is just plain horrible. When this movie was over, I said: "Wow! That movie was absolutely terrible!" That's right, this movie is terrible, it fails as a disaster movie, and it fails as a movie movie. To call this movie a bad movie is an understatement, it is not a bad movie, it is a horrible movie. There is not one single exciting thing in this movie, so because of that, this movie is not only a horrible movie, but it is also a boring one! I recalled that when I first saw this movie, I almost fell asleep while watching it!

Paul Newman and Willam Holden were the only good things about this movie, and from what I saw, they obviously looked like they did not want to be there. Apart from Paul Newman and Willam Holden, I can't think of much else to recommend about this movie, it is totally a disaster. Almost everything about this movie sucks, the acting (except Newman and Holden) is horrible, the directing is also horrible, and not to mention the script. The script was absolutely repulsive, it should have won a Razzie for worst screenplay! In fact, this the script was so terrible, that I was laughing out-loud quite a few times! Compared to this terrible movie, Plan 9 From Outer Space is a masterpiece.

I'm sorry if this offends anybody, but When Time Ran Out is absolutely terrible. I would not recommend that you see this bomb, because you will be bored to tears! If you do decide to watch this movie, be prepared to see something bad, very, very, very bad! How this movie ever got the green light is beyond me! I can tolerate some bad movies, such as Plan 9, but this, is so bad, that is not even on the level of so bad it's good! Once again, I'm sorry if this offends anybody, but this movie gets a one out of ten from me. When Time Ran Out is unoriginal, unexciting, and just plain forgettable.

1/10
