44 Minutes: The North Hollywood Shootout (2003) | Full Movie

Published on 28 Jul 2021 / In Film & Animation

⁣44 Minutes: The North Hollywood Shoot-Out is a 2003 American made-for-television crime film directed by Yves Simoneau. The film premiered on the FX Network in June 5, 2003. It is based on the real life event known as The North Hollywood shootout which took place in ⁣1997.


Homicide detective Frank McGregor (Michael Madsen) tracks a violent duo of bank robbers: Larry Eugene Phillips Jr. and Emil Mătăsăreanu. They were named the High Incident Bandits by the LAPD.

On the morning of February 28, 1997, police officers get ready for work, while Phillips and Mătăsăreanu prepare to loot an armored bank truck. Meanwhile, SWAT officer Donnie Anderson (Ron Livingston) is mourning the death of his father. The latter was a policeman for over 31 years. He displays a lack of coordination with his unit during a raid on an apartment building, which almost causes one of his team members to be left alone with suspects, and is forced by his superior to take time off. Meanwhile, Phillips and Mătăsăreanu park outside the North Hollywood branch of Bank of America and wait for the armored truck to arrive. They are frustrated when the truck does not turn up and decide on robbing the bank instead. Donning black masks and homemade body armor, they enter the branch, firing at the roof with AK-47s. At the same time, an LAPD patrol car passes by, and the officers observe the robbers entering the bank and call in a 211 for an armed robbery.
Phillips and Mătăsăreanu force the manager to open the vault and fill a duffel bag with all of the cash in the branch. While Mătăsăreanu has his back turned, the manager places a stack of notes rigged with a dye pack. With other officers arriving and setting up positions surrounding the bank, Phillips is shocked to see dozens of them and decides to walk outside, firing at them with his AK-47 and quickly being joined by Mătăsăreanu. The officers are heavily outgunned in the shootout. Anderson listens to the call on his radio, gathers his SWAT team, and races to the bank. After several minutes of firing and injuring both officers and civilians, Phillips and Mătăsăreanu decide to make a getaway. Mătăsăreanu drives their car while Phillips walks beside it and provides cover fire.

On Archwood Street, Phillips separates from Mătăsăreanu and starts firing randomly at the pursuing officers. While reloading, Phillips' AK-47 jams, and he is unable to clear it. He draws a pistol. Raising the finger, he continues firing at the officers. Then, he turns the pistol on himself, shooting himself under the chin while being simultaneously shot by McGregor. Meanwhile, Mătăsăreanu carjacks a pickup truck but is unable to start the engine since the driver disabled the fuel tanks before fleeing. The SWAT team arrives and corners Mătăsăreanu, who then takes cover behind his car, and a close-range gunfight ensues. The SWAT team eventually fires below the cars at Mătăsăreanu's legs; Mătăsăreanu is repeatedly hit in the feet and legs. Severely wounded, he drops his weapon and surrenders. It is later revealed that he dies of his gunshot wounds at the scene before paramedics can arrive.

The ending notes how the aftermath of the shootout proved to be a miracle, with no civilian or police deaths. It also notes how public opinion of the LAPD went up immensely due to their handling of the shootout. Actual footage is shown of LAPD officers receiving medals of valor and the public sending them thank-you notes and flowers in appreciation of their heroic efforts. McGregor closes by noting in an interview that "in 44 minutes of sheer terror, not one officer ran away. Everyone did their job, and I think that means something."

I would describe myself as an agnostic, though heavily Christian sympathizing, spiritual nationalist, patriotic Englishmen and national socialist. The 'branch' of national socialism I subscribe to is esoteric Hitlerism. I equally support my theistic and atheistic racial brethren alike; taking no definitive stance of Christendom over Paganism and vice versa. I believe all white factions should unite by putting their race first before any other label and work together for the betterment of our kind. I am not a racist by it's modern definition; that is to say one who hates another race; though by traditional definition I am; that is to say one who believes there are clear biological distinctions between the races of the world and there are superior and inferior races based upon inherent characteristics. I believe in a mission of racial unity in which Arabs, Africans, Whites, Indians and Asians work together to help preserve our nations, cultures and race from the poisoness miscegenation promoting degenerate ideology of Marxism that has sought to destroy the natural diversity of the modern world.

I remember when this happened. The cops and the public are VERY lucky these guys had no fire discipline. If they could shoot, there would be dozens and dozens dead. Come to think of it...I wonder now if this was a false flag to erode our gun rights. Thanks for posting this, I will watch it tonight while I relax with the wife.

I'm still shocked nobody except the gunman died. Even though they were spraying and praying they managed to get a few good shots off; shooting some cops multiple times; including in the chest.

Considering they were using anti-Armour piercing 7.62×39mm and I've seen body cam footage of people dying after taking a shot or two from 9mm; it's safe to say the cops were VERY lucky to be alive after that day.

Still you are right though; guys couldn't shoot any better than they could piss thank god. I hope you have a good night with your wife and enjoy the video 👍

Phillips did the right thing without hesitation, and so did his parents on his birth certificate. Attacking the synagogue of enslavement and deceiving it.

I'm confused about the parent comment. What did they do that was good? I presume give birth to him is what you're getting at?
