There's too much cheese, but there are still enough amusing action beats and funny one-liners to let one say "30 Minutes or Less" delivers, more or less on time.
30 Minutes Or Less has enough of both action and comedy to appeal to multiple demographics, and as far as crude comedies go it's a fun watch.
| Original Score: 7/10
This is a breezy, fun, and funny film that doesn't waste any time in getting its story told by propelling its characters into one crazy situation after another.
| Original Score: 3/4
30 Minutes or Less lacks logic, and it doesn't make use of its title concept in any interesting way, but the film is funny, fast and entertaining through-and-through.
| Original Score: 8/10
A raunchy heist comedy with a pace as fast as its dialogue, '30 Minutes Or Less' will have you laughing out loud.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
A consistently funny, well acted and fantastically short - basically 80mins - little comedy that's more than deserving of your time.
30 Minutes or Less is almost as dumb as its wannabe criminal geniuses, but the film barrels along at such a pace - spraying expletives as it goes - that it doesn't matter that the plot is as battered as Nick's Mustang.
| Original Score: 3/5
It's like a live-action version of a vulgar, violent cartoon: It's cheerful, willfully subversive, speedy, and lightweight.
An entertaining enough distraction but not the must-see it might have been.
It's entirely ridiculous, but it gallops cheerfully along; everything is carried off with flair and ingenuity.
| Original Score: 4/5
The bungling criminals scenario has been done better many times before, although director Ruben Fleischer makes his protagonists fairly likeable, if a little annoying at times.
It's funny, clever and pacy to a fault, and the script more than satisfies its quota of decent zings.
It's all about the characters and - thankfully - they're good ones. In fact, you're glad they're not Gone in Sixty Seconds.
Enjoyably pacey knockabout comedy with strong comic performances and a witty script, though the tone wobbles a little and it's ultimately rather shallow and forgettable (if still fun).
Less of a laugh-out-loud caper, but more an intriguingly quirky collision of bruised male egos that happens to be bolstered by some set-pieces and below-the-belt antics ...
Undoubtedly slight but terrifically entertaining all the same. Very fast and lots of fun.
Jesse Eisenberg is the only person in the movie who even comes close to being believable, but that almost doesn't matter because the movie is consistently funny.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A tasty line-up, but a nihilistic tone and lacklustre script make for a fast-food action-comedy that's diverting but throwaway.
Always unlikely to repeat the breakout success of Zombieland, 30 Minutes Or Less attempts but lacks the wit and surprise of the director's last film
Sexism may be inseparable from the imperatives of male aggression. 30 Minutes or Less ridicules this...
