Critic Reviews for Two Minute Warning

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (9)

  • I thought perhaps the movie would at least include a little pop sociology to soften its blood-letting. Not a chance. It's a cheerfully unashamed exploitation of two of our great national preoccupations, pro football and guns.

  • There is just enough energy remaining to make Two-Minute Warning an amusing time waster.

    September 27, 2015 | Full Review…
  • An off-the-beaten-track story of a football stadium crowd menaced by a sniper, combined with above-average plotting, acting and direction.

    September 27, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Efficient enough as formula suspense, but it fails to confront the implications of its subject, preferring instead evasiveness and fast cynicism to pull it through.

    September 27, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Two Minute Warning, about a mad sniper in a crowded football stadium, has the suspense, the compassion, the human vision and the individual nuance you would expect in a movie about a foot stepping on an anthill.

    September 27, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The cast of excellent actors is completely wasted.
