It doesn't feel like a cookie-cutter cop thriller, and, on top of that, it's actually about something.

Herzfeld's a secondhand-meister, simply regenerating themes, styles and a story line that we've all seen -- and tired of -- somewhere before.

The movie is nothing if not ambitious. The movie is nothing if not overdone. The movie is also, well, pretty much ... nothing.

Two horrifyingly bad hours that should stand as a reminder to keep Hollywood away from big issues or anything else it can put in its mouth and choke on.

The filmmaker tries to eat his cake and have it as well, giving his audience ample servings of what we presumably want while slapping our wrists for it at the same time.

De Niro and rising star Edward Burns have just enough knowing, gritty give-and-take in 15 Minutes to make you hungry for more.

There's a dynamite movie to be made about the collision -- and collusion -- of celebrity culture, violence, and media complicity. But the hot-button 15 Minutes isn't it.

A tiresome screed that purports to teach us a lesson about violence and the media even as it serves up much more than the minimum daily requirement of stabbings, bloody gunshot wounds and relentless stomach punches.

Warhol's statement was just a one-liner, and a movie requires more than that to run two hours.

Less the blistering satire it imagines itself than a blustering, bloody, blundering melodrama.

Boasts a fine cast and makes enough cogent points that it rises above standard cop fare.

Its savage indictment of the nexus involving media, crime and a voracious public is a cinematic statement difficult to ignore.

A jumping off point for showy, contrived, borderline exploitation sequences that fail to tie together because they're not really there to do anything but sell themselves as money shot thrills.

It's to Herzfeld's credit that the movie's caustic observations hit the mark as often as they belabor the obvious.
