Movie Reviews

A tense, slow burn
Jonathan Strawn | Albuquerque, NM | 02/02/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film is a slow burner, with almost no action for nearly the entire running time, and then everything goes crazy at the eponymous two minute warning. It has a huge, ensamble cast, led by Heston and Cassavetes as the lead police. Almost every character gets a moment to shine, and when the bullets finally start flying there is a lot of tension as these characters run for cover.

For such a large cast and huge spectacle the film seems really small for a large portion of its running time. Only in the final, action packed minutes does the movie really use its cast and scope to full potential.

This movie is a wonderfully refreshing change from the frenetic action of contemporary film, really drawing out suspense as long as possible. The enigmatic, never clearly seen sniper adds to the tension, and his motives seem to be as an agent of chaos as much as anything else. I highly recommend this for anyone who loves slow-burn thrillers and the style of 1970s cinema."
Worst of the 70's Disaster Movies - BORING
RamboLiberal | Pittsburgh, PA | 05/03/2010
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Wasted 2 hours of my life watching this boring movie. It is the worst of the 70's disaster movies & 70's mostly TV stars casting. Just about everyone in this movie is phoning in their lines including the writers. There were no characters even worth caring about."
