Jon Avnet directs Al Pacino in the thriller 88 Minutes. Pacino plays university professor Jack Gramm, who occasionally assists the FBI in matters of forensic psychiatry. His recent testimony against a freshly convicted criminal seems to be the reason he has gotten a scary phone call informing him he will die in 88 minutes. As with the like-minded thriller D.O.A. (both the original and the remake), the protagonist must use his skills in order to track down who has hatched this evil plot and hopefully prevent his own demise. Alicia Witt and Leelee Sobieski co-star as the professor's star students.~Perry Seibert
First, Best Buy's selection and shipping are awesome. Recieved this gem before the estimated date and was hassel free.
88 Minutes is one of my favorite bad movies. Watch the movie and then find the HDTGM podcast lampooning it!
Al Pacino provides yet another FINE acting performance - start to finish. Lots of twists to the plot - lots of action. Good back up performances by the cast absolutely keeps one interested in watching the movie to the end. The acting and plot is so well written at times the viewer might question who is really the good guy and whom are the bad guys. For sure this movie is well worth adding to one's movie collection.
