Synopsis


88 Minutes
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, Rovi

    Pretty Good Suspence Movie

    Posted

    I got this movie thinking it would have some action in it but it turned out to be more of a suspence movie rather than an action movie. That is alright though because Al Pacino more than made up for it. He did a superior job acting in this movie. The other actors also did good but were not as good as Al Pacino. The movie overall keeps you thinking because you don't know who the villian is til close to the end of the movie. The Blu-ray video was great as well as the sound. I have surround sound but this movie doesn't have enough sound to really let you enjoy your home theater system. Thats o.k. though since this is a decent movie to watch. I would recommend this movie to anyone.

    Al Pacino saves movie

    Al Pacino has always been one of my favorite actors. After Scarface you can't not like Al Pacino. However, in this particular movie, he is the only good thing going. I think this movie is only good if you are extremely bored and have nothing else to do. The plot and story concept is very weak and there really is no build up or suspense. I give this purchase a 4.5 out of 10. If you like Al Pacino that is the only reason I say buy 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.

    Good action/suspense/thriller

    I enjoy a good action/suspense/thiller that keeps me guessing until the end and 88 minutes delivered. Al Pacino does a great job (wish I could say the same about his hair though!) as well as the supporting cast. From the opening scene I was captivated and enjoyed the movie. Be sure to watch the alternate ending as it really added to completing the movie. So much that it should have made it to the theatrical release!

    This was a good movie, my wife and I liked it! This movie got really mixed reviews. It really keeps you guessing and has a good twist at the end. However, I didn't like who the bad guy turned out to be. Al Pacino is great as usual. I highly recommend it, (mostly because I'm an Al Pacino fan). Also, some other twisted plot movies are Tortured, Street Kings, and Insomnia.

    Horrifying

    That was a horrible movie. No wonder it never hit the theaters. A plot that seemed sqeezed out of dried out lemon, with completely unrealistic moments. A top notch psychologist is played like a teenager, rinning around scared. And the last scene with the hanging girl is just physically unrealistic.

    Typical Ending

    88 minutes is an alright movie. I was into it for most of the movie but then the ending, like so many movies, was just ridiculous. Al Pacino was good in it but the other actors...not so good. I probably wouldn't watch it again if given the opportunity.
