  1. Giorgio's rating of the film 21 Grams

    Good acting performances from all the leading ones but superb from Naomi Watts. The idea of the connected stories where dots can be linked only at the end is not original but anyway nice. The convoluted storyline seems sometimes just an artefice to make the film more challenging to follow (like if it is a sign of good direction) and some turning points are too forced and unnatural

  2. lumpenprinzess's rating of the film 21 Grams

    All the actors, but Sean Penn especially and most of all Melissa Leo are outstanding in this. They clearly enjoyed working with Iñárritu. And yes, the film is beautifully constructed.

  3. Charlie Douglas-Hamilton's rating of the film 21 Grams

    The boldness of vision is the key attraction to this. The key question is: whether the structure truly helps the story or relay the theme. I'm not sure it does. Potentially a memento reaction? The story is powerful and the performances are good (though not a fan of the cinematography), but in the end it doesn't feel satisfying. It almost feels fractured for the sake of it, but some segments work fantastically. Unsure

  4. Malt Frisky's rating of the film 21 Grams

    It's pretty bleak. And with the actors portraying who can be the bleakest it's actually difficult to pick a stand out with gold stars all round. But the other main focus is the dissected way the film is jumbled and us to detective our way in connecting all the pieces. The problem is once you've figured it out you've still got 40 minutes to and waiting for the inevitable twist/ shocking moment at the end of the film.

  5. @frassivan's rating of the film 21 Grams

    guns/god, faith/hate, parents/lovers, fortune/misfortune.. all american oxymorons at their best. outstanding performances by a stellar cast. perfectly dynamic anachronic flow. so what went wrong? maybe I can't stand all those childish contemporary neurosis anymore

  7. Absentia's rating of the film 21 Grams

  8. Aivaras_Z's rating of the film 21 Grams

    A bit convoluted at times, but works well when touching upon subjects of guilt, redemption, pain, and suffering.

  10. Johnny Mislow's rating of the film 21 Grams

    The movie was great but I really can't stand Sean Penn's face anymore.

  11. Matija's rating of the film 21 Grams

    It seems I remember oddly little about this film, after just a couple of days from watching.

  12. Leif Erikson's rating of the film 21 Grams

    i love iñarritu but 21 grams and babel are the worst

  15. Nachtreich's rating of the film 21 Grams

  16. Thomas Dods's rating of the film 21 Grams

    A raw and involving drama with truly brilliant performances from the three leads. Naomi Watts is especially good here in what is probably her best performance. The non-linear still feels completely cohesive and reinforces the trauma felt by the characters who are thrown together by the central "event". It's interesting how different Inarritu's last couple of films have been to his earlier work.
