MOVIE REVIEW

Review by Robert Bell

Shelved for over a year and featuring a fancy new prologue, 88 Minutes hasn't had an easy time making it to the big screen. There are many reasons why a studio might choose to sit on a movie for an extended period of time. One of these reasons includes the potential marketability of the film's star; if they have a television show coming, or a higher profile film coming, they may be able to draw a larger audience at a later time with increased exposure. Some other culprits may be a multiplex crowded with films of a similar genre, or the general quality of the film itself. Full movie review »
