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

If the film had not been afraid to go a little darker, dig a little deeper and develop its characters beyond their stereotypes, it would have been a much stronger effort.

It just goes to show that, even with so much talent involved behind and in front of the camera, some material just won't work.

A carousel that gets caught up in its own whirlwind and doesn't utilize or know how to appreciate its talent properly.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
August 10, 2012
An utterly superficial movie ineffectively posing as a work of significance. Yes, "grandiosely superficial" will do quite nicely.

August 1, 2012
Directed by Fernando Meirelles from a dusty script by Peter Morgan, 360 is all superficial stimulation, hollow and stiff as it beats the dead horse of we're-all-connected narratives.

There's the sense that the filmmakers are more interested in the formal connections between the characters than the characters themselves. This is a movie in love with its own architecture despite said design venting drama, like a house that loses heat.

There are some compelling performances here - especially Foster and Hopkins - but they are held at the mercy of tiresome armchair philosophy and an almost fetishistic focus on silly people and the misery they cause.

Spending 111 minutes watching people at the mall would be a more illuminating study of human behavior-and undoubtedly more entertaining.
August 10, 2012
Burdened with a dawdling pace and a contrived storyline (and the moral vacuum said storyline creates), 360 falls short on pretty much every level.

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.

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.

Mereilles stretches some of his links to beyond tenuous.

A better title: A Few Famous and Not-So-Famous Actors Bump into Each Other and Don't Do or Say Much of Consequence. Wordy, yes, but accurate.

The movie makes for joyless viewing, big stars and all.
August 2, 2012
360 throws in enough cold weather, meaningful stares and cursory explorations of globalism to fool easily-impressed audiences into thinking they've seen something important, but there's nothing new or resonant going on here.
August 1, 2012
We hopscotch from person to person, continent to continent, grievance to grievance until things come thuddingly full circle (thus, the title).
August 14, 2012
It's a dull world after all.
July 31, 2012
360 represents the number of times you'll turn to the person next to you and say "oh, you've got to be kidding me!"

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