User Review

Quite good, despite a few cheesy scenes.

Rating: 8/10


My rating: 7.6

It was better than expected. It definitely reminded me of "Crash" and
especially "The air I breathe" with multiple story's, drama and the
city atmosphere, it has a similar feel to it.

Despite a few REALLY cheesy scenes in the end, it really was
entertaining all the way trough. The acting was good, most noticeable
by the mesmerizing Jessica Biel and the always strong actor Forrest
Whittaker.

Biel has a few nudes scenes in the movie which was done very tasteful
and very sexy ! and if you didn't think much of her before, you most
like will be in love after watching her dance :-). Too bad this is
probably the only thing this movie will be known for, as it lacks
serious promotion and probably will go straight to DVD.

Hope it will do good, just spread the word I guess.

It should find it's indie audience I'm sure.
