Tragedy - 21 Grams review by Cherry

Spoiler Alert
10/01/2008

Well, things just go from bad to worse for the three main characters involved. Didn't know what was going on at the start of the film, but got into it, and ended up thinking the film was interesting, but heavy.

Piece by piece, the puzzle comes together - 21 Grams review by Darth Joey Jo Jo

Spoiler Alert
12/09/2008

I love Pulp Fiction, the different mini-stories that wrap around each other into one twisted and funnt whole.

I love Memento, having the benefit of remembering what Leonard's (Guy Pierce) character has forgotten and seeing the story develop from two different timelines.

21 Grams takes this idea of telling a story out of the order in which events happen to the very extreme. It's not an easy film to watch and it's easy to get lost at the beginning but don't worry, all the stories tie up by the end of the film.

Problem is the story does suffer because it's told in such a way. The main characters are all pretty bleak and trying to find any sympathy for them is difficult while your trying to untangle the plot. Ultimately, there's not much story here at all but it's saved by some great acting from some top actors and the cinematography is pretty good too.

Overall, good film but I'd just watch it the one time to savour the experience.

Marmite - 21 Grams review by AD

Spoiler Alert

Many people have praised this film, I won't.

It is a non-linear story, in fact 3 interwoven ones.

I had no interest or sympathy for any of the characters they seemed the usual cliches: born-again Christian, former drug addict & so on. If the film had been made, cut into random pieces & then stuck back together that gives a good idea of what you'll watch. I had no idea or determination to figure out the difference from past,present or future. After 40 minutes I thought "o no not another 70!" This din't engage me.

Watch it if you are a masochists that wants to feel depressed.
