This Reviewer disliked it!
Edward Douglas, ComingSoon.net

"In a year full of great science fiction, In Time is weak, moronic and dumbed down to the point of diluting anything that may have made it remotely interesting."

When reading reviews remember: "Critics are like eunuchs in a harem; they know how its done, they've seen it done every day, but they're unable to do it themselves." --Brendan Behan (successful Irish dramatist)

"Having the critics praise you is like having the hangman say you've got a pretty neck." --Eli Wallach (award winning screen actor)
