      Dennis Harvey Variety Slick, watchable but ultimately somewhat pointless... Jun 30, 2021 Full Review Carlos Aguilar RogerEbert.com The thematic intent has legs, but not enough. Feb 8, 2021 Full Review Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews Prime Time boasts an intriguing premise and an extremely engaging first act, but it loses this initial energy as time runs by, ending with a predictably fitting yet underwhelming final act. Rated: C+ Jul 24, 2023 Full Review Cody Dericks Next Best Picture A stunning central performance does a lot to rescue what the film's screenplay lacks. While it's an occasionally refreshing look at a hostage crisis, "Prime Time" is unfortunately understated to the point of being nearly anonymous. Rated: 5/10 Jul 8, 2022 Full Review Zofia Wijaszka Daily Dead Prime Time by Jakub Pitek is his great directorial feature debut. he film touches upon the issues of incompetence of those in charge in tough situations, mass media, and displays Poland's picture at the beginning of the new millennium. Rated: B Feb 11, 2022 Full Review Andrew Kendall Stabroek News ... too facile to be anything beyond a ghost of a compelling idea. Oct 25, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
