    Out of Time is entertaining but painfully predictable. 20 minutes into the movie i knew exactly what was going on. Chief Whitlock is not your typical Denzel role, and while he played it the best that he could, I just feel like it didn't suit him very well. The location of the movie didn't make a whole lot of sense, and that wasn't the only thing. Why would a detective from Miami and his ex-wife be investigating a crime an hour away in some small town? Miami PD isn't the FBI. The movie has a lot of plot holes and everything that happens is fairly obvious. It's entertaining, but it's not going to blow anyone away. Expand

    Not totally bad, but can not get over its shortcomings, and at the end feels like a generic thriller, which had some good moments, and a better cast.

    Interessante história..porém, o desfecho muito fraco!!! Pela ação até que vale a pena, denzel até está bom neste filme, só que a escolha do filme que foi péssima!

    Although the movie is rather predictable, it's still enjoyable to watch. Not the best Denzel Washington movie out there but still worth it if you're not looking for anything too special. My girlfriend definitely liked it and was at the edge of her seat!

  1. Cross "Body Heat" with "No Way Out" and you wind up with Out of Time, a slick crime melodrama with more style than substance.
  2. A crime thriller that is strong on sultry atmosphere--you practically break into a sweat watching it--but weak on believability.

    A tasty if wildly far-fetched thriller, Out of Time proves far stronger in its characterizations than in developing genuine suspense.
