Movie Review: Bad acting, boring hero leaves ’88 minutes’ lacking

It is always a shame when a movie with so much promise turns out to be a disappointment. In "88 Minutes," John Gramm (Al Pacino) works as a college professor and a psychiatrist for the FBI. Upon receiving a phone call in which someone threatens to kill him in "88 minutes," Gramm must narrow down the suspects ­­­- who are all pretty much his students - before time runs out.

There have been horror movies that have truly terrified us. Movies such as "Psycho," "The Exorcist," "Alien" and "The Shining" have terrified audiences long after they left the theater. "The Eye" is not one of them.

Texas wildcatter new endeaveor for Day-Lewis

Many people might believe that "There Will Be Blood" is too long and uneventful to be entertaining.

However, it must be understood that the film is not an action movie, but a character sketch. As a film, "There Will Be Blood" is not necessarily a terrific, must-see motion picture, but it is a good, solid movie and I recommend it.
