Si una película logró insultar a cada persona en cada rincón del planeta, ésta fue Crash, y al parecer esta mi*rda logró ganar el Oscar a mejor película.
The cast is very varied and has a good number of well known stars but even that doesn't save the movie. The acting is good I guess but nothing mindblowing. Fraser's acting seemed very below average compared to other roles he has done. The writing is decent but I found it kinda stupid at points.
Almost every character is annoying,illogical, and stereotypical. I could not relate to any of them. Bullock's character was one of the worst, all she does is bitch and bitch about how angry she is. I just wanted to punch her right in the face.
The movie is so hypocritical, the best example is a scene where Ludicrous' character starts to talk to his friend how Bullock became afraid when she saw them and how racist that is. Yet a second later they pull out their guns and steal her car at gun point..wow way to live up to your stereotype. Good job Haggis, you really showed how bad racism is. /end sarcasm
The music was alright in the beginning, but after hearing the same type of song for over 90 mins I got very annoyed at the Enya inspired crap.
As for the plot, there really isn't one, it's just a bunch of things that happen to these people. This movie is also very unrealistic. Its almost hilarious because of all the coincidences. Its so absurd that all these characters magically keep finding each other, or as the movie says "crashing" into each other.
The first half was very boring and not very entertaining and it somewhat tries to save itself near the end but it just doesnt succeed. This movie is exactly like a crash, everything is mangled and loosely tied together. In the end the movie shoves racism in my face and really insults my intelligence. Yes Paul Haggis I can see racism is bad, but unlike what you're trying to show in this movie, life does not revolve around racism. I guess I better be careful next time, the racist cop that molests me might end up saving my life. Shure life may sometimes do that, but Crash takes that idea and jacks it up to the extreme, where its both improbable and illogical.
Best picture my ass, Brokeback Mountain at least gives a realistic and touching story of two men who try their hardest to make their relatioship work in the face of oppression. This movie is way overrated and I believe its probally because of how hard it tries to pull on your heart strings. I hope I never have to see this piece of crap again. In the end, this movie can be summed up in 2 words....QUEER FEST!
Most gritty movies can go 5 minutes without saying an f-bomb, but this movie can't go 10 minutes without mentioning racism twice. A cop gives a very thorough search: racism. An Iranian argues with a locksmith over a door: racism. A couple of black guys scare a white woman, and she talks about it after they robbed her car: racism.
Second half: horizontal thumb 6/10
We instead see most truly good scenes about different races getting along and the cinematography and music is striking, but clearly it contrasts to everything we saw in the first half.
In the end, this best picture winner is higher than The Greatest Show on Earth and Out of Africa but lower than Kramer vs Kramer. Do you know what is the only good thing about this movie, Brendan Fraser is actually in a good movie.
