Morgan just skims the surface of most of the stories, leaving you disappointed and frustrated when something with potential goes unfulfilled.

[A] subtle and striking globehopping ensemble drama of human interactions shaped by sex and love, honesty and deception, allure and retreat...

Though the cinematography looks sleek, with shots through windows and in mirrors, split screens and city lights that blur and sharpen, the stories equate to a tangled mess.

Much like its own characters, it dithers too much - and it dares too little.

If someone suggests seeing this, do a 180 - and run.

Morgan's dramatis personae connect only in the way a house's wiring connects after a visit by a duff electrician.

There's one Anthony Hopkins monologue to remember, but that only highlights everything the rest of the film so sorely lacks.

The script never quite engages on an emotional level, the individual stories lack dramatic impact and there are some annoyingly pretentious moments.

If you're hoping for an intelligent night out or any of the usual services, 360 demands a brisk refund.

The episodic nature of the project keeps the character development to a minimum, and thus the emotional connection remains at a frustrating distance.

Even at a relatively modest 110 minutes Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles's sprawling ensemble piece tiresomely outstays its welcome.

'360' is classy but utterly amorphous, and that seemingly benign title gives far too much away.

A great disappointment by the City Of God man's high standards.

You'd hardly recognize the inspiration of Arthur Schnitzler's 19th century play "Reigen," or its previous cinematic interpretations (by Max Ophuls in 1950 and Roger Vadim in 1964), in Fernando Meirelles somber take on "La Ronde."

Like the fork that usually comes with your airplane meal, 360 is plastic.

It's as interesting as a viewing exercise as it must have been as a writing exercise. But traveling 360 degrees with your story means you end up right back where you started.

The big thing about Fernando Meirelles' 360 is that you never forget you're watching a movie. That's not a compliment.

One thing is remarkable here: the amount of high-powered talent assembled to document the obvious.

"360" gives us much in the way of international anguish, frustrated coupling and longing stares, but there's very little plausibility or genuine emotion in its egregiously contrived story of ardor gone amiss.

See it for its willingness to take you somewhere you don't expect.
