  • Summary: 21 Grams is the kind of "jigsaw puzzle, one piece at a time" movie that is extremely risky and confident, but might not always pay off. Luckily, 21 Grams' emotional payoff is one of the best I've ever seen. It carefully skips clichés of the genre, and tells its story with explosive acting and expertly crafted screenplay. It has round characters who are worth caring about, and an ending that is completely satisfying.

  • Summary: 21 Grams has been edited in a way that we're constantly jumping through time, but it never becomes confusing. It requires the viewer to assemble facts as time progress, which is what makes the film so great. The movie is packed with instances of innovative direction from Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and features stellar performances from stars Sean Penn, Naomi Watts, and Benicio Del Toro.

  • Summary: 21 Grams could have been an excellent movie. Every character did their part. The problem is the director didn't put the scenes in order, making it hard to be fully engaged in the story.

  • Summary: A tragic story of three unconnected lives that are changed forever when a reformed ex-con accidentally kills a young family in an automobile accident. It's a beautifully crafted, thoughtful and intelligent character study featuring a truly outstanding performance by Benicio Del Toro. My main gripe was that it took a little too long to get to the point; particularly considering that I'd guessed the ending less than half way through the film.

  • Excerpt: Stories of 3 individuals intertwined involving a reformed convict Jack Jordan (Benicio del Toro), a stalker type stubborn professor named Paul Rivers (Sean Penn) and a widowed drug addict Cristina Peck (Naomi Watts). The style of directing was confusing at first, trying to much to be like Memento. The soundtrack and cinematography was alright. What makes this film special are the performances of the 3 main figures and screenplay.

  • Summary: Great editing and acting performances. It's a hard movie to watch because of the subject matter, but don't let that detour you away from the movie.
