About the Movie

A nightmare of fear and panic unfolds in this chilling tale of a lone gunman who sets his sights on a sell-out crowd at a championship football game. Charlton Heston is the police captain who leads the desperate fight to stop the madman - high atop the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum - before he sets off widespread devastation in the jam-packed stadium. John Cassavetes and Martin Balsam are among those risking their lives to thwart the sniper's attempts, while innocent spectators Gena Rowlands, Jack Klugman, Beau Bridges, Walter Pidgeon, David Janssen and thousands of others try to hide from the fatal gun sites and avoid the deadly ensuing stampede.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Two Minute Warning, about a mad sniper in a crowded football stadium, has the suspense, the compassion, the human vision and the individual nuance you would expect in a movie about a foot stepping on an anthill. – Richard Eder, New York Times, Sep 27, 2015

Rotten: I thought perhaps the movie would at least include a little pop sociology to soften its blood-letting. Not a chance. It's a cheerfully unashamed exploitation of two of our great national preoccupations, pro football and guns. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Sep 27, 2015

Rotten: Efficient enough as formula suspense, but it fails to confront the implications of its subject, preferring instead evasiveness and fast cynicism to pull it through. – Chris Petit, Time Out, Sep 27, 2015

Rotten: A great concept and seamless use of real sports action make this a memorable experience, but despite a great cast the characters are all too familiar, and fatally, attempts at building tension sag under a bloated running time. – Jim Hall, Film4, Sep 27, 2015
