Entertaining

It works as entertainment and manages to offer quality in the performance.

Although the plot lengthens during the film, it manages to be entertaining. Highlights include the good performances from the entire cast, excellent production design, good photography, good directing, and compelling makeup. On the other hand, the script is not its greatest strength, it does not explain why that happens, there is no development of some characters and others end up discarding them. I feel like there is a message behind it, but it can't be made known.

I like how they apply psychology to the main character, it describes why it is like that but it does not describe why he is doing it, something that you expect throughout the film, although it manages to entertain and to stand out in the technical aspects.

A Boring, Flat and Completely Pointless Hostage Thriller

Prime Time honestly would've worked out better as a short film. Actually to be blunt, Prime Time is a pointless waste of time.

So the main reason this Polish thriller is utterly worthless is just because of how stretched out it is. Without giving out actual spoilers, the film is all just about a man who interrupts live TV, threatens the crew with a gun, and demands to talk on live air. It is a very weird, very unusual, but a smart idea that wasted it's opportunity. You can seriously just watch the trailer and say you've basically seen the movie.

The film's only upside is the lead performance, in which is thrilling enough to hold you through. It probably would've been great if it was a short film with a 15 minute runtime, as the rest is just unnecessary, flat and boring dread.

Another tribute to Sidney Lumet

As I have already said about MONEY MONSTER - a film whch the topic is very close to this one - and another Polish movie released by Netflix last year. LE GOUT DE LA HAINE - French release title - Sidney Lumet's shadow and spirit seems to be in both films. A radical critism of the human world and society, thru networks for instance. Gloomy, depressing but so close to reality.
