When I think about the name of this move, “30 Minutes Or Less,” it gives me a giggle. Not because I found this movie hilariously funny but because the title of this movie is so ironically true for a story which is 30 Minutes or Less in itself.
Seriously, You will have the entire idea of the movie within a few minutes and then you will feel like the story is just being dragged. There are numerous unnecessary scenes in the movie and not to mention the dirty jokes which will not make you laugh at all.
Jesse Eisenburg is totally used up in this movie. He is a good actor and a good actor definitely needs a good story to comply with. In this movie, The fault of story goes on the head of the actors.
Aziz Ansari, yet another name in the comedy movie world, needless to say, makes you laugh once in a while here and there in the movie but beyond that world, you don’t know who he is.
Also knowing that this movie is an exaggerated version of a true story. Or so it seems, may be after the writers denying that they didn’t know the real stuff. Like we are buying that, eh?
Anyway, coming back to the plot, this movie could very well end up in 30 minutes and give you the same idea of the movie as it gives after the forceful dragging.
My advice, If you are going to watch this movie, don’t have any preset expectations. Watch it for the joy of watching and it be worth the time.
