News & Interviews for 96 Minutes
Critic Reviews for 96 Minutes
"96 Minutes" is a mere introduction to Sociology 101, but it's brisk enough to rustle the reading list and keep the conversation alive.
The talented Mr. Ross makes Dre's panic and adrenaline-fueled behavior all too believable. You watch as he sees his horizons dim. What could be sadder?
The feature debut of writer-director Aimee Lagos, the film feels overstuffed and overcooked, as if the filmmaker were trying to get too much out all in one go.
Like 21 Grams minus the breadth, acting, or visual style, Aimee Lagos' first feature follows two pairs of friends on a collision course.
Audience Reviews for 96 Minutes
A story of kids from different parts of town coming together on one unexpected night and the concequences they have to deal with. It was a pretty good movie.
A decent little indie drama showing a carjacking from both the victim and perpetrator point of view. It all comes together with the downfall of a young man who was trying to do right, but was hanging with the wrong people at the wrong time.
96 minutes is a story of two boy from the poor side of town and their fatal collision one night with two privileged girls in a carjacking gone wrong. There isn't much to say about this one; its got a Crash vibe to it where it analyzes people in a sociological aspect, often using flashbacks. Unlike Crash however, these sequences are abrupt and choppily placed in the movie and it could get disorienting.
My main criticism is the poor acting jobs. Brittany Snow is adaquet, but the real weakness is the two male leads. Evan Ross at times is okay, but he often delivers his dialogue in a forced manner. Trautmann portrays am obnoxious wannabe gangster, and he could be absolutely terrible, constantly yelling and spitting words as he tried to talk tough, making him difficult to understand.
It was just a tedious film overall, despite not the poorest of setups regarding suspension building. I was too annoyed to care about the film and it wasn't as intelligent as I hoped.
