The Denzel Washington thriller Out of Time is quite enjoyable if you ignore its implausible plotting. Partly inspired by 1948's The Big Clock and its nominal 1987 remake No Way Out, this reunion of Washington and his Devil in a Blue Dress director Carl Franklin is about a man--in this case the police chief (Washington) of sleepy Banyan Key, Florida--who falls into a trap set by others, sinks into legal quicksand of his own making, and must race the clock to extricate himself from a series of incriminating setbacks. The Florida setting adds welcome character to the pot-boiler plot, and Washington's screen credibility makes it easy to overlook the absurdities of rookie writer David Collard's screenplay. Eva Mendes is sharp and sensible as Washington's estranged wife (do you think they'll reconcile for a happy ending?), and the talented John Billingsley--whose portrayal of Dr Phlox on TV's Enterprise is vastly underrated--is a constant delight as Washington's medical examiner, beer buddy and wily co-conspirator. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Pesky libido gets cop into hot water 7 Jan 2006
OUT OF TIME illustrates a predicament familiar to most men, i.e. when good sense is subverted by the promise of genital happiness with a pretty woman.
Denzel Washington is Matt Whitlock, Sheriff of Banyon Key, FL. His wife Alexandra (Eva Mendes), a Miami homicide gumshoe, has moved out and is getting the divorce papers processed. In the meantime, the sheriff finds solace in the bed of Ann (Sanaa Lathan), the abused wife of jealous Chris (Dean Cain), a local morgue security guard. Paradise begins to unravel when Ann reveals that she has terminal cancer and six months to live. After an unsuccessful attempt to convert a million dollar life insurance policy into the cash needed to fund experimental cancer treatment in Switzerland, Ann makes Matt the beneficiary, and the latter "loans" her five-hundred grand in impounded drug money, evidence in a stalled criminal investigation, that's currently on ice in the sheriff's safe. The night after Ann takes possession of the swag, she and her husband are apparently murdered in their home, which is then torched. Alexandra is assigned to the case. Meanwhile, the cash has disappeared; Matt is identified by a non-reliable witness as the suspicious person skulking outside his paramour's home the night of the crime; and the local DEA chief has phoned to say that he's sending two of his heavies over to take possession of the drug money. Fancy dancing is in order if Matt is to stay out of Deep Bandini.
The plot becomes more incredible with a compressed time frame that demands that Matt extricate himself from his mess over two 8-hour work shifts. Alexandra doesn't even have the time to change out of a gloriously short and tight miniskirt and high heels, in which outfit she manages to kick down a locked door.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly Entertaining! 14 Feb 2004
This film looked as if it could be fantastically corny and uniteresting, however when I went to see it I thought it was a genuinly brilliant thriller. Denzil Washington plays a chief of police in a small area in Florida. However he falls foul of an eleborate scheme to frame him as a murderer and run away with a large amount of money. In the midst of this, Denzil and his wife are splitting up even though Denzil still loves her. This leads to a brilliant finale. This film keeps you on the edge of your seat as your never quite sure whats going to happen next, and the plot twists and turns so much it's almost comical. The acting is superb as is the storyline. This is a film you simply must buy on DVD!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well done movie with a formulaic plot 6 May 2004
After the basic setting for the movie is presented one is afraid that it will become predictable and boring. Nevertheless, it succeeds in providing enough suspense and subtle plot twists that keep the rhythm going and the interest of the audience alive.
Denzel Washington plays Matt Whitlock, a police chief in Banyan Keys, FL who has been abandoned by his wife recently and is involved in a relationship with Ann, a married woman. Everything goes well until Matt finds out that Ann has cancer, which was in remission but has come back with a vengeance and she has only six months left to live. The only option to prevent this is to try experimental procedures that are extremely expensive. In the meantime, Ann finds out that her husband has increased the life policy they had bought for her to $1,000,000. The final piece of the story is that Matt made a bust of a drug dealer and has $485,000 sequestered for evidence in the safe in his office.
In this setting, one imagines that the story will develop according to one of the usual formulas, and it surely does. The movie, however, is very well done, with passages of high intensity and great performances, which compensate in part for the plot "defects". One final aspect that I liked is the photography; I usually do not expect to find high quality in this area in a thriller, but in this case the scenery makes this task easy to accomplish. Evidently, this movie is not a masterpiece, but it will serve it purpose if you are looking to relax and have a good time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good viewing 16 Mar 2004
In 'Out of Time', Denzel Washington teams up again with Training Day partner Eva Mendes in another cop drama. It doesn't come anywhere close to the aforementioned movie, but is a good film in itself anyhow.
We follow Washington who plays Police Chief Whitlock, who is having an affair with a married woman. Soon it becomes clear that this woman is terminally ill, and Whitlock quickly becomes the life insurance benificiary. But he is determined to help his girlfriend, and tries to do so by using police-confiscated drug money to finance the expensive medical treatment. But when the girl goes missing with the money, it becomes clear that it was all a set-up, and the Chief Whitlock is the only and prime suspect for murder when bodies are found. The race is on...Whitlock must solve the case whilst putting his colleagues onto the false track.
Although in real life this would never ever occur, and Washington's character would be in a whole lot of trouble, it definitely makes for good viewing, and I could think of worse ways to spend 90 mins of movie time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good thriller. 31 July 2005
By DVD Fan
Another good thriller starring Denzel Washington. This time he plays a cop who while having an affair with a old school friend, learns that she has terminal cancer and needs a lot of money to pay for the new treatment. With a safe full of money from a drugs bust he decides to give her the money. He also finds out that her partner has taken out extra life insurance for her, before you know it they disappear. He now has to find out what is going on before he is found to be a prime suspect in a double homicide, and replace the missing money. To do this he as to stay one step ahead of his team and estranged wife leading the investigation!
This is a very good movie with some neat plot twists, which can be hard to follow, need brain on for this one, but is highly enjoyable with some real tension built up by simple things that keep you guessing as to whether he is going to be found out before he knows what happened. All set within the Florida keys as the backdrop, this is a cool thriller well worth watching!
