When Eastern European criminals Oleg and Emil come to New York City to pick up their share of a heist score, Oleg steals a video camera and starts filming their activities, both legal and illegal. When they learn how the American media circus can make a remorseless killer look like the victim and make them rich, they target media-savvy NYPD Homicide Detective Eddie Flemming and media-naive FDNY Fire Marshal Jordy Warsaw, the cops investigating their murder and torching of their former criminal partner, filming everything to sell to the local tabloid TV show ”Top Story.”
15 Minutes review by Soap2day
15 Minutes immerses the viewer in the atmosphere perfectly created by the director.
For all the 120 minutes this movie is running, there is not a minute that will be wasted watching it.
The single most impressive movie in the genre Action, Crime, Drama.
This movie was made in 2001 and is watched in one breath.
You have to hand it to John Herzfeld for putting together a great cast.
