March 19, 2001
15 Minutes unfortunately fails to fully capitalize on its intriguing premise and ends up wasting the considerable talents of all involved.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 9, 2001
Belly flops in the gutter and grovels in its own gratuitous, far-fetched violence.
October 10, 2001
Yeah it's tough to condemn violence and glorify it at the same time.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
March 8, 2001
Criticizes us for watching exploitative violence even as it foists big helpings of carnage on us.
March 12, 2001
An ugly, depraved movie that is not so much an indictment of American celebrity culture as it is a worthless pile of trash.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
March 9, 2001
The movie is nothing if not ambitious. The movie is nothing if not overdone. The movie is also, well, pretty much ... nothing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 24, 2001
So eager is this film to grapple with its demons, that it doesn't realize how much like them it has become.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
March 2, 2001
The film seems exaggerated strictly to pray upon latent public fears in a calculated, predatory way.
July 23, 2007
It sounds like some crank on the next barstool venting about how everything is crap.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
May 20, 2009
"15 Minutes" is a cops-and-killers action movie naively intent on telling you things you already know about the societal pitfalls of tabloid media.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
March 9, 2001
Warhol's statement was just a one-liner, and a movie requires more than that to run two hours.
December 27, 2007
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
February 15, 2001
Slow, plodding, and so far-fetched it stretches the boundaries of 'suspension of disbelief,' 15 Minutes does very little with a good cast.
| Original Score: 3/5
September 25, 2010
Alley flasher, pubescent paperboy, toy with a broken squeaker. Edward Burns sounds like those things, but plays none of them here. He's fire marshal Jordy Warsaw. That sounds like a Pauly Shore character; Shore would arguably act with greater conviction.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
March 9, 2001
I watched an episode of Whose Line Is It Anyway? just before writing this, and it obviously warped my fragile little brain.
March 18, 2001
Every situation is ironic, every event is a moral point, every symbol is forced, and everything is a symbol...
Full Review | Original Score: D+
May 11, 2001
No se deje sorprender, pues el resultado final es más bien engañoso.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 21, 2002
It's a film that has about 15 minutes of fervor to it before it gets grounded into a mixture of sleaze, violence, and heartless melodrama.
Full Review | Original Score: C
August 2, 2002
Relentless yelling by two usually fine actors spoils this timely crime drama.
March 6, 2001
The reality of 'unscripted' programming et al. trumps the critique from the gitgo.
