      Audience Member A brilliant - albeit interestingly slow - movie to while away to. Hilariously funny in parts and with a superb performance from Philip Davis. Highly recommended. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review william s All the charm and heart are missing in this blithering tale about an unlikely friendship...it just felt hollow throughout. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting fusion of contrasting personalities. It's a nice film in terms of its message but a little grittier in its character and language in achieving this. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Have too say this really was watchable and interesting, the acting was spot on, and such a great script and story, having two total opposites creating a freindship bound brilliant. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member What a good little British film, unpretentious and entrancing. Perhaps a bit predictable but still very enjoyable.

      Charlotte O'Sullivan London Evening Standard The dialogue is mostly spry, the ending inventive. And Barklem-Biggs, who initially overdoes the feckless cretin routine, grows into his role beautifully. Rated: 3/5 Sep 20, 2013 Full Review Mike McCahill Guardian It exudes a certain low-key, pootling charm, but often gets sloppy: who casts Perry Benson as a middle-class snob?. Rated: 2/5 Sep 12, 2013 Full Review Martyn Conterio Little White Lies Bishop's debut feature wants to warm the heart and tickle the funny bone, both entirely admirable aims, but doesn't quite cut it as a work of cinema. Rated: 1/5 Sep 12, 2013 Full Review Katie Smith-Wong Flick Feast With its likability overshadowing the dark side of UK urban drama, Borrowed Time is a refreshing change. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 21, 2019 Full Review Joseph Walsh CineVue Thankfully, Bishop's debut is anything but maudlin. Rated: 3/5 Aug 23, 2018 Full Review David Aldridge Radio Times Borrowed Time does have its heart in the right place and you'll happily invest in the likeable lead characters.
