REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..you will be captivated by the first hour and, after that, impatiently checking your watch..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
2 of 4

“..there's a half-formed quality to the story's political message that creeps into its basic plotting..”
by Nick Schager [Slant Magazine]
“..sweet premise..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
“..still pretty damn satisfying to watch in the current climate..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
2 of 4

“..pretty cast. Potent premise. Piss-poor execution..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..it's refreshing to see a low-tech major studio science fiction film in this day and age..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..despite its blunt message, never succumbs to preachiness..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Movieline]
Review rate : C+

“..basically all cliches..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..Andrew Niccol's "In Time" looks great, sounds stilted and plays like a clever videogame with too many rules..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
“..a fascinating philosophical conceit delivered as a slick, hyper-stylized conspiracy yarn, juicy enough to deliver on both fronts, provided you don't ask too many questions..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE CROSSING 2 :

“..an inert follow-up that doesn't deliver enough visual or emotional payoff in its overdue yet short-lived shipwreck climax..”
by Maggie Lee [Variety]

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
