So were you there last night at the screening of “88 Minutes”?

If so, what did you think?

And whether you were there or not, feel free to chime in with your favorite/least favorite Al Pacino performances. Side question: Anyone out there catch him on stage in "American Buffalo," "Richard III" or anything else?

Your thoughts?
  • Great movie. Lots of drama and suspense... keeps you guessing until the end! Plus, it's Al Pacino!
  • 88 Minutes is a very good movie - interesting, fun, suspense filled story, well written, well shot, and interesting characters that are very well portrayed, especially by Pachino. The ending was a little disappointing, but what can you say or do after 88 minutes. There are very very few movies I want to see a second time and this is one of them. Thanks Lou.
  • Let's face it. Al Pacino could read the label off a can of peas and I would be mesmerized. With that said, there truly is no one else in Hollywood who could have accomplished this role.
    He seems to constantly battle some level of suppressed emotion - whether it is fear, anger, frustration or fatigue. The range of emotions that flash across his face are myriad and extraordinary.
    I start out wanting to like every movie I see. Then I leave it to the movie to disappoint me. This in no way disappointed me.
    It will offer to you an interesting plot line, indirect clues, suspense and intriguing character development.
    Bottom line - go see this movie.
  • Al Pacino was dynamic in thr role. The movie was very well done and held my interest through the whole movie. It is well worth seeing, but was a little gorey. It is definitely suspenceful.
