Matt along with his soon to be ex-wife Alex, played by the beautiful Eva Mendes, is in hot pursuit of a felon. Alex is unaware that Matt gave the money to Ann, or that he was even in possession of so much money. There is an incredible, ironic turn of events as to exactly what happened to the money and where it ended up.
Denzel Washington, one of my favorite actors, is outstanding in this film and always does an excellent job in every film he stars in. Eva Mendes is also outstanding. Sanan Lathan is excellent as Ann. The supporting cast is outstanding.
This is an example of some great writing by David Collard. There are twists and turns and the story really plays up to the name Out of Time as Washington comes under more and more pressure to hide his tracks.
Anderson I think) literally had me busting up starting at 0.48:16. It was hilarious but when she started to walk out the door that's what really had me LOL. I can't believe this older lady actually had me cracking up! Check it out...

The cinematography is a highlight with the sweaty Miami scenes well handled and giving the film its body.
Denzil is its heart, cool and confident but slowly disintegrating into a man racked by doubt and exposure after an illegal act committed to help his lover pay for expensive cancer treatment. Watching him squirm as he fights to conceal his theft is well played out and the clever writing and plot propel the story to a climax which was ....... a bit underwhelming in my honest opinion but will please many viewers.
Eva Mendes is excellent as Denzil's support, a really good looking couple which uplifts the story line as she is not just there to be the eye candy in her role.
Enjoyed it, worth watching again in the future. English Subtitles with the film plus bonus features.
Matthias Whitlock (Washington) is chief of police in little Banyan Key, Florida. Respected for his work and basically honest in the line of duty. Away from work, however, his marriage to Alex (Mendes) has failed, he's having an affair with an abused wife and he likes a little drink on duty. So when his lover Anne Harrison (Lathan) springs on him the shocking news that she has been diagnosed with terminal cancer, it naturally shakes his world. But this news is merely the start of something bigger, for pretty soon Matt will be in the unusual situation of having to stay one step of his own kind or face dire consequences.
It's a film proudly wearing a badge of homage to film noir of the 40s. In fact it very much plays out as a contemporary riff on John Farrow's excellent Ray Milland starrer of 1948, The Big Clock. But that's fine, especially when you have some knowing craft in front and behind the camera in the shape of Franklin (Devil in a Blue Dress) and Washington (take your pick here really!). Yet as great as Franklin and Washington's work is, they all owe a debt to Collard's screenplay. Inventive in how it plays out as a plot, with it's many tight situations laid down for Washington's duped law enforcer to try and get out of, the screenplay has a knack for deft humour, often sly, which is something that even some of the hardest of noirs from the golden era are tinted with. The secret is being able to blend the humour with quality moments of suspense, and this picture manages to do that with some interest.
Film also benefits greatly from the tight atmosphere created by photographer de Sande. Sweaty Florida in daylight doesn't cry out as being a good starting point for an offshoot of film noir (real Florida locations were thankfully used), but the scenic beauty is never realised during the drama sequences, colours are toned down, even for a stunning red sky, and this perfectly becomes at one with a near frantic Washington as the tricksters of Banyan Key start to close in on him. It's nice too see, also, interracial couples forming the core of the story, while the dominance of sexuality is firmly given a shrewd work over by director and writer. There's good thought gone in to making this, enough to steer it away from charges of just being a faux neo-noir production.
Problems? Yes, a few. Inevitability of outcome is hard to shake off whilst viewing it, especially for those well versed in the genre (sub-genre). Clichés and contrivances are stacked up like a pile of cop thriller 101 books, and Franklin goes smug (daft) by dropping in a couple of slow frame sequences that the film clearly didn't need. While the big showdown in the finale lacks a gut punch. But this is a good viewing, sexy at times and always eye catching, it also pleasingly chooses perky dialogue over action to make its dramatic point. The cast around Washington enhance the quality: Lathan in the tricky role shows a number of layered gears, Cain is imposing as a bully boy husband (where did this Cain go?) and Billingsley almost sneaks in and steals the movie as the loyal and stoic comedy side-kick.
So pesky flaws aside, this is a good recommendation as a night in movie for those with a kink for contemporary neo-noir. 7/10
