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 our past. Not all of them are innocent, not all of them survive, but in these 96 minutes the choices they each make will change their lives forever. -- (C) Official Site

  • 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.

    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.
