Philadelphia Inquirer
Smart, suspenseful, satisfyingly unpredictable.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
A suspenseful, fascinating movie that milks the premise for all it's worth.

Portland Oregonian
The star, though, is the script, a rare enough occurrence in Hollywood that it merits special note.
75
Christian Science Monitor
Emmerich's screenplay gains emotional punch from its sincere concern for family values, but science-fiction fans may be disappointed by the limited exploration of its fascinating time-travel premise.

Miami Herald
A very complicated movie. It is also pretty wonderful.
75
Boston Globe
Enough originality and emotional weight to keep you engrossed even when it lapses into some pretty standard moves at the end.
75
Baltimore Sun
An enjoyably complex sci-fi suspense thriller.
70
Film.com
Confirming the moral of a thousand "Twilight Zone" episodes: Don't play with time.
60
Variety
An oddly schizophrenic fantasy thriller that ultimately succumbs to a fatal case of sentimentality.

Mr. Showbiz
As an audience member, you end up feeling like a sucker for even having tolerated that sickly sweet notion about a father, a son, and their silly radio.
