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.

3/4 

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 review

Stories of 3 individuals intertwined involving a reformed convict Jack Jordan (Benicio del Toro), a stalker type stubborn professor named Paul Rivers (Sean Penn) and a widowed drug addict Cristina Peck (Naomi Watts). The style of directing was confusing at first, trying to much to be like Memento. The soundtrack and cinematography was alright. What makes this film special are the performances of the 3 main figures and screenplay. Wonderful lines from Paul - "There are so many things that have to happen for two people to meet." "How many lives do we live? How many times do we die? They say we all lose 21 grams... at the exact moment of our death." Jack - "God knows when a single hair moves on your head." Premise of 21 Grams was good and could have been better if told in a direct man...
