Chicago Tribune
It's a twisty, hell-for-leather crime thriller, and director Carl Franklin gives it all the slick, modern trimmings.
83
Entertainment Weekly
Entertainingly deft sleight-of-hand thriller.
80
Wall Street Journal
Mr. Franklin has always been easy with quicksilver moods -- and Mr. Washington is terrifically appealing as a fool for love who loses his cool as he learns about fear.
75
It's a kick to watch Denzel Washington do a movie just for the hot, sexy fun of it.
75
A shrewd thriller that takes the time-honored plot about an innocent man wrongfully accused and gives it a film-noir twist.
75
Philadelphia Inquirer
Franklin has enormous fun using these varied technologies to ramp up the suspense in a movie that is the most purely entertaining thriller since "No Way Out."
75
New York Daily News
The tension of Matt having to work alongside his wife without being able to trust her provides the movie's real electricity, sexual and otherwise.
75
Chicago Sun-Times
Suspension of disbelief, always necessary in a thriller, is required here in wholesale quantities. But in a movie like Out of Time I'm not looking for realism, I'm looking for a sense of style brought to genre material.
75
Miami Herald
The more preposterous Out of Time gets, the more enjoyable the movie becomes.
60
The Hollywood Reporter
Cross "Body Heat" with "No Way Out" and you wind up with Out of Time, a slick crime melodrama with more style than substance.
50
Out of Time seems out of another time and place. Remember "Presumed Innocent?"
