Critic Reviews of "Five Minutes of Heaven"
St. Louis Post-DispatchNovember 05, 2009
A director whose breakthrough was the story of a madman's last stand has exceeded that feat with the story of an angry man's next step.
Seattle TimesOctober 15, 2009
Two marvelous performances from two Irish actors turn Oliver Hirschbiegel's Five Minutes of Heaven into a tour de force.
ReelViewsSeptember 09, 2009
The movie might have been more tense had it been a little more quiet. Neeson and Nesbitt, however, are so good that narrative hiccups never threaten to lose us...
Christian Science MonitorSeptember 02, 2009
So many movies set in Northern Ireland are about the Troubles that we might justifiably ask, why another? Five Minutes of Heaven is far from the best of the breed, but it does at least take a new tack.
Los Angeles TimesAugust 28, 2009
Ultimately, Five Minutes of Heaven is stronger as a whole than its individual parts.
Entertainment WeeklyAugust 26, 2009
It's an original movie idea that feels written for the stage, all the more so since so much of our attention is diverted to admiring how the actors act, in roles with a high degree of technical difficulty.

Tense tale of guilt and atonement in Northern Ireland.
Movie MetropolisJune 22, 2010
The film deserves credit for not offering any easy answers, but it also fails to ask any interesting questions.

... about real people shaped by real situations and experiences that echo through their being long after the events are over.
Concrete PlaygroundApril 14, 2010
Pitch-perfect performances and an incredibly powerful first two acts do a lot to make up for the film's loss of momentum towards the end.
