    I just saw 21 Grams a couple of nights ago and I thought it kicked ass! Anybody else see it? Drama through and through... you gotta be in the mood for such a heavy flick.

    I haven't seen it yet... it was on my to-do list quite a while back, but I never got around to it. I'll probably end up just getting it on DVD.

    Yeah, I've seen it and loved it. It was such an intense movie, with some of the most believable acting I've seen in a while. Loved the plot, the depth of the characters, the way it was filmed, pretty much everything about it. It's not the most feel-good movie, but I guess it's not supposed to be!

    Overal it makes a good story but I just didn't like the film. It was real confusing at certain bits and the characters seemed a little to melodramatic for my tastes. In acting your supposed to go for the extreme polarities but god damn.

    i thought it was pretty slow...

    all that 'cool' editin at the beginnin was pretty pointless..and really added nothin ta the story...

    and that big speech at the end? twas pretty corney.

    if it werent for sean penn.,, i reckon i'd hate that movie:)

    I love this movie, is one of my favorites. The acting is great, so emotional. It's a very overwhelming film, but its great. I love Benicio del Toro and I think Naomi Watts did an excellent job.

    For me, it completely suprise me. I thought I was going to see something but it was totally different from what I expected to see, it kinda blew my mind.

    aw i missed it. the one chance i got to see it and they wouldn't let me in cos i had no ID to show i was fifteen. it's true, i say!!

    i only wanted to see it cos i love benicio del toro, but it got some really good reviews. it should be out on video in the uk soon, so i'll be getting that.

    im all for nonlinear story telling but 21 grams took it to a new level of sucking. the movie was just way to all over the place to follow. i was bored out of my mind the entire time i was watching it. in my opinion this film is way way way over rated.

    the one good thing about this film was benicio del toros character.
