Piece by piece, the puzzle comes together - 21 Grams review by CP Customer

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.

stick with the scenes going into various time zones and you will be rewarded with piecing together of the tragic lives of the main characters.

Not easy to follow at first but if you keep a tight attention span you will not be disappointed.

Not for lazy viewing -where the story is spelt out for the less intelligent!

Tragedy - 21 Grams review by Cherry

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.
