5.0 out of 5 stars entertaining thriller
confussed by reviews?, lets be straight! there is no justification for serial killer!, DE NIRO and BURNS make that clear in this rollercoaster film of mayhem and chaos. DE niro playing a hard ruthless and cop is a blessing!. the film is far superior and realistic than NBK.(almost like a fairy tale approach). this film gives a clear message! ,when crime is in the streets...

3.0 out of 5 stars “15 Minutes” on BLU RAY – Playability Issues With UK Machines
A terrible thriller and one that should have been so much better given the great cast (ugly and violent too - but in a crass way).

But typical of Amazon - all the reviews for this BLU RAY version are actually for the 'DVD' issues. And the BLU RAY seems cheap too. Don’t…

Even if you wanted to buy this on the best format - as of February...

5.0 out of 5 stars entertaining thriller, 26 May 2013
This review is from: 15 Minutes [DVD] (DVD)
confussed by reviews?, lets be straight! there is no justification for serial killer!, DE NIRO and BURNS make that clear in this rollercoaster film of mayhem and chaos. DE niro playing a hard ruthless and cop is a blessing!. the film is far superior and realistic than NBK.(almost like a fairy tale approach). this film gives a clear message! ,when crime is in the streets its dealt in the streets..no air time or fame should be given to killers.this is dirty harry style! it is fast n furious! moments of extreme violence,superb action with suspence! and a shocking scene that will have gripped in the seat.!! watch this movie! remember and believe my review!

3.0 out of 5 stars “15 Minutes” on BLU RAY – Playability Issues With UK Machines, 21 Feb. 2014

(VINE VOICE)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
A terrible thriller and one that should have been so much better given the great cast (ugly and violent too - but in a crass way).

But typical of Amazon - all the reviews for this BLU RAY version are actually for the 'DVD' issues. And the BLU RAY seems cheap too. Don’t…

Even if you wanted to buy this on the best format - as of February 2014 - this USA-only BLU RAY is what's known as REGION-A LOCKED. Which means it will not play on your UK Blu Ray player unless it's a 'MULTI-REGION PLAYER for BLU RAY' (not DVD) - which very few machines are (even some that cost above £800 aren't).

Until such time as "15 Minutes" is given a UK or Euro release on BLU RAY that we can actually use - fans on this side of the pond will have to wait...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, not great..., 15 Sept. 2001
This review is from: 15 Minutes [DVD] (DVD)
Interesting film, but rather disappointing and sometimes lacked meaning and excitement although the storyline is generally good and nothing like I expected - prepare to be surprised! In all, a good film but by no means Robert De Niro's best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really not that bad, 24 Dec. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This film premiered on TV a few weeks ago and I have to say I really liked it. I'm a big De Niro fan, but this film isn't just about De Niro, his appearance doesn't make it what it is, it's a good film on it's own. The story the film tells and the way it's told to me was original and powerful, slightly amusing but leaves you with a thought provoking message about how modern society works. It's not a multi oscar winning film or a Goodfellas or Deer Hunter, it's not suppose to be like them though and is a good entertaining film that'll certainly hold your attention.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fight Fire With Satire, 7 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Over the years American humour has evolved - 15 minutes works as a thriller but is really a cynical satire of the reality talk show culture we live in today. Perhaps influenced by the similarly cynical Ace In The Hole from way back in 1951. De Niro and Burns make a surprisingly good combination. Burns is left to carry the movie for the final third following De Niro's surprise demise. Charlize Theron pops up in a cameo role as a favour to the director who gave her a break in the excellent Two Days In The Valley.

The blu ray (from Alliance Canada) is region A locked - so a multi region player is required ( disc will play on some region B Panasonic models via function - top menu). The picture quality is excellent with nice colour balance and pleasing levels of detail. The dialogue heavy audio is presented as lossless .DTS HD 5.1. None of the dvd extras have been ported over to the blu ray.

Of the 3 New Line titles licenced to Alliance only Running Scared has been released by Warner ( multi region) - so we still await 15 Minutes and The Cell. However if you can play this Canadian blu ray I would recommend as it represents a significant upgrade on the dvd

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 15 Minutes [DVD] (DVD)
Two russians come to america to find their 15 minutes of fame.Kelsey Grammer plays a TV exec that will do anything to get a story and follows De Niro on his cases.On commiting a crime,the ruskies are persued by Police detective De Niro and Edward Burns as a fire investigator?.Expect torture scenes and surprising outcome in the story,very good violent movie!

4.0 out of 5 stars The most under rated film of the year!, 18 Sept. 2001
This review is from: 15 Minutes [DVD] (DVD)
This film had a bit of everything, good guys, bad guys, guns, humour, a bit of love and a certain Mr De'niro. It's fast pace makes this a very watchable film even if you have an attention span of a goldfish. So go on boost this film up the rankings!

4.0 out of 5 stars A cracking film, well worth watching!, 24 Sept. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: 15 Minutes [DVD] (DVD)
This was one of the few films of this year which had everything an action packed thriller should have - Non stop action! In this totally original film De Niro plays a cop who goes on chat show and is involved in a kind of 'Cops' TV program, when two foreigners find a hole in the justice system and find a way to literally get away with murder and film all of their viscious acts with a comcorder, De Niro must catch them and end their sick adventure. With action lerking round every corner this film is a must see for any action junkie!
