Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Although it's often laugh-out-loud laughably bad, 88 Minutes is mostly just a slog. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Try as he might to 'hoo-ha' some life into this stupendously stupid thriller, Al Pacino can't disguise the desperation of this CSI wanna-be. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: An inane thriller whose major fear factor hinges on a menacing phone call, the film also relies on a silly phrase intended to fill the viewer with unspeakable terror: 'Tick tock, Doc.' – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Avnet lays all this stuff out before us with a straight face -- the picture is humorless and witless. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jun 24, 2010

Instantly the Worst Movie of the Year (1.5 mics)

I personally love the majority of Al Pacino's films, he's stared in some of the greatest movies of all time. And trust me that's not an over statement, he's stared in Francis Ford Coppola's Godfather films (which have won numerous awards including Acadamy Awards for best picture), to Sidney Lumet's Award Nominated Serpico & Dog Day Afternoon. However, this movie proves that it's not the actors that make a film, it's always the storyline. As it turns out the screenwriter for the film was a first timer, as well as Jon Avnet did a horrable job directing the film. Overall it ranks to be a extremely poorly made movie, and not one I'd recommend to anyone with an interest in quality films with a storyline.

88 minutes felt like an hour and a half of haphazard chaos

For a thriller, this is a bit confusing and slow-paced. Wrong category for Drama. Too many different characters, all other the place, not solid establishment of the lead character. Pacing and rythm of the motion picture could have used adjustment, don't know how much source material they had to work with, but seems a bit flabby for some A-listers.
