15 MINUTES (2000) ***

Robert DeNiro and Edward Burns are cops after two annoying European serial killers who videotape their crimes and sell them to a sleazy anchorman (Kelsey Grammer), who’s greedy for ratings. Of course, the killers become a media sensation, and the constant news coverage hinders the cops’ investigation. The film’s “statement” (the media is making serial killers into celebrities) is heavy handed and obvious, but DeNiro and Burns are good, and there’s a good plot twist about two-thirds in that will surprise you. Charlize Theron appears unbilled as a call girl and was also in director John Herzfeld’s previous film, 2 Days in the Valley.
