The surprise here isn't that 15 Minutes isn't a masterpiece; it's that the movie works at all.
63
In a season mostly given over to unwatchable movies being cleared off studio shelves, it's at least about something. And there's no denying the lurid urgency with which it jumps off the screen.
50
Less the blistering satire it imagines itself than a blustering, bloody, blundering melodrama about bottom feeders nibbling each other.
38
Works just fine as a generic but fast-paced - and rather ugly - cop buddy flick.
25
It takes a concerted effort to make a movie as relentlessly stupid and grating as 15 Minutes.
