Film constructed of wild coincidences. A throwback to stodgy liberal melodrama of the 1960s like "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner". Says zero about the social and economic realities of LA that breed racism.

The problem with the movie is that it is so brash and transparent in its attempt to spotlight and expose every single conceivable racial divide and stereotype, it loses all credibility and can't be but gawked at.

Haggis and savvy editor Hughes Winborne manage to pull all of these threads together and weave an engaging look at the abhorrent state of racism ... in our major cities.

Uno está dispuesto a perdonarle todos sus facilismos porque, en términos cinematográficos, es un muy buen drama.

Hollywood Report Card

Tense, entertaining, and poignant- the film is a worthwhile watch. A high rate of coincidence robs it of some credibility. Yet, in some ways plays more as a myth, a parable.

It's smart, therefore, that Haggis has written such novel, precisely observed, often unpleasant characters as the ones Bullock, Dillon, and Cheadle inhabit.

I almost liked it, because of how the actors struggled, and sometimes succeeded, to rise above the domineering message and create real people.

It's the sort of movie that makes people feel like they've heard an important statement without actually having said anything much.

An already over-eventful narrative -- what, another crash? -- teeters into melodramatic implausibility.
