Watch It TODAY

It is sort of like Crash, except without all of the real-world relevance and brilliant writing that made Crash so great. The actors were good in the roles written for them; but the story-line, in its attempts to be so forcibly poignant, fails to live up to its premise and leaves the viewer thinking "What was the point of that?"

Too much gratuitous violence for me - very gory bloody scenes. I expected a lot more in terms of plot and story line from an all star cast and I was disappointed.

In a way it was like Crash, but so much more blood. I loved Emile Hirsch in it of course. He was so funny. He cracked me up in every part he was in. I loved to see Brendan Faser play a roll like that. Everyone did such a great part in the movie. It had a good plot goin on; the way it all tied in together like that. I would surely watch it again!
