21 Grams has been edited in a way that we're constantly jumping through time, but it never becomes confusing. It requires the viewer to assemble facts as time progress, which is what makes the film so great. The movie is packed with instances of innovative direction from Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and features stellar performances from stars Sean Penn, Naomi Watts, and Benicio Del Toro.

A tragic story of three unconnected lives that are changed forever when a reformed ex-con accidentally kills a young family in an automobile accident. It's a beautifully crafted, thoughtful and intelligent character study featuring a truly outstanding performance by Benicio Del Toro. My main gripe was that it took a little too long to get to the point; particularly considering that I'd guessed the ending less than half way through the film. But on the whole a solid and moving drama that is yet more proof that Del Toro is the most consistently great actor working today.

Interconnecting story told with emotional weight and topped off by three excellent performances. This sad tale concludes in a raw and satisfying manner.

This is a movie about how three people find their lives quietly intersecting. It's less in-your-face about the interlocking plotlines as, say, Crash, which actually allows the subdued emotional portrayals of the principle actors to shine. A haunting portrait of grief and forgiveness.

Watts, Penn, Del Toro...I love when movies cast brilliant actors. At first the movie starts out a little confusing. It takes a little bit to get into the groove of things. But once the story got going I was hooked in. When I read the summary I had a feeling that this was going to be something like Crash or Babel. However, movies like these never fail to be original and different. The acting in this movie carried it from beginning to end. Watts was the most amazing character out of the 3. Penn's role was a bit stalkerish and I kind of disturbing, nonetheless this was top quality acting. The reason I couldn't give it the other half was because it was a little long and the back and forth started to get a little redundant towards the end.

"21 Grams" is a superb dramatic thriller, expertly laid out and told with incredible conviction. Three individuals (played to genius-level by Sean Penn, Benecio del Toro, and Naomi Watts) is a power-house of emotions that tell the literal and metaphorical weight of the human soul. A touching portrait of life where there are more grey zones than anything, this masterpiece is one that will fall forever under the category of greatness.

Some people may be turned off by all the jumping back and forth this film does. Luckily the three leads carry enough weight to make this film work.
