Goofs

(at around 32 mins) After Ann leaves Matt to look at the beneficiary document, the camera zooms in on the paper. Where "Mattias" is written it is evident that whomever on the crew filled out the forms began misspelling his name. The second "a" in "Mattias" was originally an upper case "E". The writer alternates upper and lower case letters but another "E" in the document looks very similar to the "A" before it was corrected. Further, all the other A's are capitalized, this one wasn't because only a lower case "A" could be made from the beginning of the "E" that was started). See more »

Good, if unoriginal noir
27 June 2009 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

Denzel Washington is a policeman who is "Out of Time" in this 2003 film also starring Eva Mendes, Sanaa Lathan, and Dean Cain.

Washington plays Matt Whitlock, a policeman involved in an affair with the beautiful Ann Harrison (Lathan). Whitlock is currently embroiled in divorce proceedings from his detective wife (Mendes), and Ann is married to an abusive ex-football player (Cain). When Ann is diagnosed with terminal cancer, Whitlock wants to help her. It puts him in the center of a crime investigation with potentially devastating implications.

This wrongly accused/framed man storyline has been used with great success in films such as No Way Out and the film on which it was based, The Clock, and "Out of Time" borrows heavily from these two films. Whitlock has to stay one step ahead of his wife's investigation in order to keep from being accused of one crime, and he has to avoid an agent for whom he's holding evidence in order to keep from being accused of another. How he wriggles out of various situations makes for some good suspense and engrossing viewing.

Washington is excellent as the harried cop, and the film is well worth watching, even though it's easy to figure out past a certain point. Although very derivative, it's highly entertaining too.
