For an action-thriller that dares to question who is guilty and who isn't, the plot really doesn't reach the mark. It's unrealistic at best, and the acting, though good, doesn't breathe any life to the flat writing. What it does offer is a little bit of action, a bit of thrills, a small, emotional spark, and a night of entertainment that doesn't stick once the movie is over. Just a run-of-the-mill action movie that Pacino couldn't even help make into a grade A film.

Entertaining outing for Pacino, with action, suspense, plot twists...but a foreseeable conclusion.

I think that Al Pacino could've picked a better movie to star in.

88 Minutes is about is an hour and a half of wasted time and effort. Al is pretty much is up to his old, old tricks in this unrealistic thriller that gets more inane the longer is goes on. Just not worth it.

Rating of

A lethargic and ridiculous thriller that gets worse and worse as it goes along and the cast either sleepwalks or overdoes it; one is neither entertained nor caught up in the storyline as it appears Pacino isn't either. I think it's funny how a condemned man on death row can request a live interview on MSNBC and get it immediately. Hardly a way to occupy two hours. Final Grade: D

This film brought to you by MSNBC.

Al Pacino sleepwalks through the role of a go-to crime fighter named Jack Gramm who races against the clock to stop a murder - his own.

The script (such that it is) is cliche-riddled with all the sloppiness of a drive-by shooting. The predictable culprit taunts our bored-looking protagonist - whom everyone in the picture can immediately identify - with a faux-Jigsaw computerized voice in a failed effort to replicate Dennis Hopper's "Pop quiz, hotshot!" from Speed: "Tick tock, doc!"

The cherry on top of it all is either a well-placed stegosaurus toy during an attempt by Al Pacino to deliver a serious, lengthy monologue or this dialogue exchange:

Jack: "Somebody hired Sara Pollard to be with me last night, then killed her. Took my semen, deposited it into Dale Morris."
Frank: "Do ...
