Default '88 Minutes' - High-Def Digest Review

Peter's review of '88 Minutes' has been posted. He says it's awful. This Blu-ray is also pretty bad, with a poor transfer, decent audio, and ok supplements. This is a movie that audiences and Al Pacino should have avoided. Not even worth a rental.

Allow me to concur with every, single word Pete wrote about this flick. I caught it in theaters and spent the last two-thirds of the movie wishing I had purchased a ticket for something else. I'm a huge Pacino fan, but '88 Minutes' is one of the most underwhelming projects I've ever seen him tackle. Ugh.

Here's to hoping 'Righteous Kill' isn't more of the same.

I too am hoping, the current trailer has good bits but plays out almost like the Death Race trailer--they show you EVERYTHING!

88 minutes is one of the worst stinkers in a long time. No wonder it stayed in release-hell for eternity. This was on DVD in Europe over a year ago. Did it eben get a N. American theatrical release?

I think Peter Bracke is one of the few people in the world who has ever called the Dennis Quaid/Meg Ryan remake of DOA good.
