New York Daily News
It's a pleasure to watch a thinking-man's actor like Sinise adapt so easily to this challenge; he even keeps his dignity when forced to participate in the inevitable martial arts-inflected showdown.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Plays around with some interesting notions, such as the nature of reality, the nature of humanity, and the nature of spiffy apartments with sleek bathroom fixtures.
63
Baltimore Sun
It's considerably flawed. It has a middle that's padded, a look that could use a few more light bulbs, a protagonist who never earns our sympathy, and an audio mix that leans much too heavily on the bass, often making it impossible to understand what's being said.

New York Post
Unfortunately, Impostor doesn't do much with its template, despite a remarkably strong cast.
50
Likely to be best appreciated by dedicated sci-fi fans, admirers of Dick in particular. It hasn't the stupendous razzle-dazzle of a mega-budget picture like "A.I. Artificial Intelligence."
42
Portland Oregonian
It's a yawn for the most part, depending on dull characters and uninvolving twists.
40
Variety
Imposter is a penny-pinched "Blade Runner," a stubbornly unexciting ride into the near future.
40
Rolling Stone
Director Gary Fleder ("Don't Say a Word") pushes the same old cliches in "Blade Runner" packaging.
30
Salon.com
Familiar and profoundly unoriginal.
25
The last 15 minutes finally get it together for what passes as a movie experience with a considerable "gotcha!" quotient.
