Plot: Nick is small town pizza delivery guy who's ordinary life collides with two wannabe criminal masterminds and forces him to rob a local bank.
My thoughts: The film reunites Jesse Eisenberg with director Ruben Fleischer. The two first worked together in box-office hit, Zombieland, which propelled Jesse Eisenberg into stardom. Jesse Eisenberg trademark persona reflects the mundane character of pizza delivery boy Nick, which also seen in his performances in previous roles especially The Social Network where he portrayed real-life character of Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg which are my favorites. 30 Minutes Or Less was so fast-paced that I never thought the running time was less than 90 minutes. The movie never failed with its adult humor and antics. Jesse Eisenberg was joined by the Danny McBride and Nick Swardson which is known for supporting roles in Adam Sandler films. This was the first time they are in major roles even if they are the playing the criminal duo. Playing the part of Nick's best friend, Chet is Aziz Ansari. Ansari already established himself as a stand-up comedian and appeared in acting roles in Funny People and I Love You, Man and now landed in a supporting role of this film. The movie is rated R-18 and opens October 26 in selected Philippine cinemas. 30 Minutes Or Less is distributed by Columbia Pictures Philippines.
