Critic Reviews for Two Minute Warning
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.
An off-the-beaten-track story of a football stadium crowd menaced by a sniper, combined with above-average plotting, acting and direction.
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.
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.
While the acting styles of John Cassavetes and Charlton Heston clash like cymbals, director Larry Peerce preoccupies himself with grandstanding camerawork that does little to heighten tension or make us care for the potential targets.
