  • Rating: R
Larry Peerce directed this tired disaster movie about a mad sniper loose in a football stadium. At the beginning, the sniper picks off a cyclist for practice and then takes roost in the top tower of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Sent in to stop the terror is Captain Peter Holly (Charlton Heston), who wants to get his hands on the sniper without endangering the lives of the people in the stadium. Unfortunately, there is a second group of law enforcement officers, a tactical commando group, who want to go into the stadium and rush the sniper -- regardless of the danger such an action would cause to the crowd watching the game. The sniper plans to start blasting at the two-minute warning signal of the football game. Holly has to find the sniper before the two-minute warning is given -- not merely to prevent the killings threatened by the sniper but to head off the tactical force before any other unnecessary deaths are incurred by the force's bulldog techniques.

    I think that "Two-Minute Warning" was one of the greatest classic mystery/suspense films of all-time and it was also one of my favorite classic mystery/suspense films of all-time. I have seen and enjoyed this film several times and I also think that "Two-Minute Warning" had an amazing cast with an original and suspenseful storyline including a lot of entertaining, exciting and enjoyable action, drama, mystery and suspense.

    Very underrated disaster film. If you are into Airport, Earthquake or disaster films in general you will have a hoot with this one. Picture quality is great and audio quality is as good as any 70s genre film on bluray. Your collection is not complete without this baby.

    This is a older movie that I originally saw in a movie theater and was delighted when I was able to purchase it from BestBuy at a good price so my wife, who has not seen it, can watch it anytime we want.
