- "88 Minutes" focuses on a college professor (Pacino) who moonlights as a forensic psychiatrist for the FBI and receives a death threat claiming he has only 88 minutes to live.
Al Pacino chews up so much scenery it's surprising there's any left by the end of this fetid thriller.
Compare 88 Minutes with "Sea of Love," another murder mystery that Pacino made, in 1989, and you find him sporting the same loud ties, but everything else has leached away: suspense, credibility, wit, and the lost art of flirtation.
This may be the most preposterous movie of the year. It is certainly the most ridiculous movie starring an Oscar-winning actor.
Forget Pacino; it’s all those red herrings that reek.
We may have to sit through worse films to come this year, but with any luck, there'll be none as guilelessly, idiotically misogynist as this one.
One of the dumbest thrillers to arrive it theaters in a long time.
This slimy, slug-minded mystery thriller starts out dead on arrival and then, like three-day-old fish, gets really bad really fast.
Actually, it's pretty much the definition of absurd.
