    It's a kick to watch Denzel Washington do a movie just for the hot, sexy fun of it. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A shrewd thriller that takes the time-honored plot about an innocent man wrongfully accused and gives it a film-noir twist. show more

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

    Joe Morgenstern 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. show more

    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." show more

    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. show more

    Cross "Body Heat" with "No Way Out" and you wind up with Out of Time, a slick crime melodrama with more style than substance. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

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

    Roger Ebert 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. show more

    The more preposterous Out of Time gets, the more enjoyable the movie becomes. show more
