  1. It's a twisty, hell-for-leather crime thriller, and director Carl Franklin gives it all the slick, modern trimmings.
  2. 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.

    The more preposterous Out of Time gets, the more enjoyable the movie becomes.
  4. Although budding star Mendes and Washington sparked in "Training Day," there's less chemistry between them this time as she glowers and frets in her role as a big-city cop.

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

    Out of Time seems out of another time and place. Remember "Presumed Innocent?"

    Another thriller absent of any real thrills.

    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

    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! 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.
