Movie Info

96 Minutes is the spellbinding story of a carjacking and four kids caught in the hair-raising chaos of one night. The story builds to a thrilling climax as it intercuts between the car and the beginning of that day, following the separate stories of each kid - where they come from, who they are, and how they all ended up in one car on this fateful night. With incredible performances by a young cast, this riveting moral tale touches on the issues of race, class, friendship and our connections to

The plot doesn't spiral; it falls with a thud and then just lies there.

"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.

The film cuts with such precision that there's scarcely any room to breathe; it's the rare thriller that is perhaps too tightly structured.

Poignant and powerful, 96 Minutes gives us an insight into not just what happens but why it happens, in the belly of urban America when young men drift into bad company

Marks writer-director Aimee Lagos as a name to watch.

First-time writer-director Aimee Lagos' time-skipping thriller ultimately adds up to less than the sum of its parts, but good performances by the youthful cast help compensate for the overly familiar story.

Gritty, riveting and well-acted.

The display of rage is honest and forward, especially near the end credits, yet that intriguing fury can't catch a full breath in this unfocused and unhelpful picture.

Overly familiar plotting and a dearth of insight doom this padded, grandiloquent carjacking melodrama, no matter its claim that it's based on true events.

Whenever vapid Valley girls cross paths with wanton Boys 'n the Hood, you know something's gotta give. And when the dust settles, it ain't going to look pretty.

The director seems to be at odds with her own film, like a well-meaning but controlling parent hell-bent on choosing a child's college, major, and fraternity for them.

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.
