The Last Half Hour is Amusing
22 March 2003 | by OriEriSee all my reviews

The incredibly gratuitous use of stock footage (you see the same CGI footage of the mouth about a 15 times, and the three seconds 4th of July fireworks about 20...I kid you not) and cliches at the end of the film makes it amusing, along with a complete abuse of space and time as a takes about 6 hours to make it from somewhere in Manhattan to another to watch 4th of July fireworks and along the way passes city hall, and goes over several bridges qand finally through a tunnel (which, incidentally, is portrayed as being a conrete tube on the river bottom as opposed to buried beneath it). Maybe the driver was really bored or just incredibly lost. Definitely a "C" movie (do they go lower?) but going in forewarned, you can still get some chuckles out of it, especially if you know NYC at all.
