Storyline

Inspired by true events, 96 minutes is the story of four young lives slammed together in one shocking moment. The events of the night in inner city Atlanta, Georgia, unfold in real time as we inter-cut between a carjacking and the beginning of that day, following four separate kids - who they are, where they come from, and the seemingly innocuous decisions that lead them towards a life changing conclusion. With no adults to guide them, they're left on their own to try to survive not only this night, but the complex reality of the world they live in. Written by Anonymous

Driven from the ghetto
24 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Writer and director Aimee Lagos wanted to make an urban drama about young people in Georgia but something went wrong with an almost not developed script and poor execution. It can easily be compared to the film Crash but in my opinion it is shown up by the more superior Boyz n the Hood which was made in the early 1990s, especially as how ordinary young black characters are dealt by the police still has not changed.

The film shifts back and forth between a carjacking and its aftermath to the events leading up to it. Two female college students, one of them studying law become victims of the car jacking.

Two young males, one black who is a high school student wanting to escape from his gang culture environment and his white friend, from a broken home, uneducated and want to be accepted by his black friends end up being the perpetrators.

The 96 minutes of the title seems to relate to the carjacking until one of the character's arrives at the hospital and not the length of the film which actually feels rather long in itself with its expletive filled script. The extent of the swearing is off putting as you feel its trying to disguise a weak script which only livens up at the conclusion of the film when one of the females gets to meet one of the attacker's again.

Thankfully the plus points is the acting, David Oyolewo has a minor but important part. At least they do their best to sketch out their roles.
