Jackson has made a career out of playing angry black men, and Ben Affleck has made a career out of playing bland white men, but here the writing gives them both room to actually explore these stock racial archetypes and show us something much richer and more complex. This is a slightly above average thriller, even if it is more insightful than actually thrilling.

An insurance agent Doyle Gipson (Jackson) and lawyer Gavin Banek (Affleck) have a car accident. Gavin leaves his folder accidentally. Both of their lives change when an important document was not returned. An important quote that somewhat summarizes the main topic of the picture - “I want to do this right.” and “I’m really sorry.” Subjects of forgiveness, clear conscience and priorities were touched. The 2 figures change after the accident, Doyle is a just man who turns to rage because of frustration while Gavin is a conceited person who transforms into a sensitive generous man. Soundtrack was alright and performances honest, the supporting cast was somewhat disappointing though. Changing Lanes was alright, snail paced with idiotic characters which could have altered …
