Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "In Time, Andrew Niccol‘s return to the science fiction genre is a film that bites off more than it can chew. It dives face first into a concept that requires detail, support and a serious tone in order for it to fully work and In Time doesn’t oddly enough spend enough time on the parts that matter. Character development is lacking and the climax is lazy and disappointing. Only one positive thing comes out of In Time and that is the under-appreciated Cillian Murphy, who proves yet again why he should be starring in more films. He takes his routine character and adds troubled layers of conflicting emotions while still maintaining the bad ass vibe sporting a fast car and a leather jacket."
