  • Summary: A thriller seen through an eye-popping new lens - that of the media's hunt for shocking imagery, no matter the cost. In 15 Minutes, as the cops chase the murderers, the media chases the cops, and the whole thing fuels an escalating firestorm. (New Line Cinema)

    The surprise here isn't that 15 Minutes isn't a masterpiece; it's that the movie works at all.
  2. A first-rate Hollywood entertainment--at least if one can accept the schizophrenia of combining a cop/buddy action thriller with an angry satire about the shamelessness of the media.
  3. 60
    Big, loud and lurid, but no less entertaining for that.
  4. 40
    Herzfeld's sophomore movie is one long howl of rage over the relationship between criminals, journalists and thrill-hungry audiences.
  5. 15 Minutes settles into Richard Donner-style goulash.
  6. It's the poster child for bad taste, not to mention bad construction.
  7. 0
    Isn't just rotten -- badly acted, badly written, badly conceived -- it's dead inside.

    I enjoyed this one enough to give it 7. If you (critics that gave zeroes) are in a bad mood or...whatever are your problems, please I enjoyed this one enough to give it 7. If you (critics that gave zeroes) are in a bad mood or...whatever are your problems, please don't write stupid things. There are other movies that you gave good marks where it is so obvious that in your saturation by the media you started to be ridiculous searching for a good movie. Collapse
