88 Minutes

He has 88 minutes to solve a murder. His own.


88 Minutes
Al Pacino stars as a college professor who moonlights as a forensic psychiatrist for the FBI. When he receives a death threat claiming he has only 88 minutes to live, he must use all his skills and training to narrow down the possible suspects, who include a disgruntled student, a jilted former lover, and a serial killer who is already on death row, before his time runs out. His problems are made worse by his unconventional behaviour, which provides ample ground to suspect that he is not as innocent as he would appear.

109 minutes.

Nils van der Linden quote iconBut the real question is: who cares? You certainly won't — and that's long before the 88 minutes are up.

James Berardinelli quote iconIt's always a shock when a movie turns out to be this bad. It's an even bigger shock when it features an actor of the caliber and reputation of Al Pacino. 88 Minutes is one of the dumbest thrillers to arrive it theaters in a long time, so it's no surprise that it has been lingering on Columbia's shelves for more than a year.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconTry 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.

ScreenIt
quote iconThis tale of a man faced with the titular life or death deadline is so incompetently made that it nearly becomes something of a hoot to watch.
