360 Reviews

  • 360 has a circular structure that's deftly pleasing, though the human drama is just facile enough to make it seem, in the end, a little too much like connect the dots played with people.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • Mr. Morgan has written some good movies, notably "The Queen," and Mr. Meirelles has won fans for neo-exploitation titles like "City of God." There's no way to know what went wrong with "360" and whether it was this uninvolving and shallow from the start.

    Manohla Dargis — New York Times

  • 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.

    Stephanie Merry — Washington Post

  • There are fleeting moments, but Morgan's narrative promiscuity leaves 360 feeling only spread out and empty.

    Nick Pinkerton — Village Voice

  • I hope Peter Morgan doesn't give up writing, and I do hope Meirelles gives up trying to be Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

    Glenn Kenny — MSN Movies

  • With a multilingual cast of mostly unfamiliar faces, plus a few stars, 360 feels too abstract, orchestrating break-ups and hook-ups in a passionless vacuum.

    Peter Debruge — Variety

  • "360" gives us much in the way of international anguish, frustrated coupling and longing stares, but there's very little plausibility or genuine emotion in its egregiously contrived story of ardor gone amiss.

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • We hopscotch from person to person, continent to continent, grievance to grievance until things come thuddingly full circle (thus, the title).

    William Goss — Film.com

  • One thing is remarkable here: the amount of high-powered talent assembled to document the obvious.

    Rick Groen — Globe and Mail

  • A mistake from beginning to end.

    Andrew O'Hehir — Salon.com

  • 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.

    James Berardinelli — ReelViews

  • La Ronde 2011-style is simply a game and its makers expert gamesmen. The film is never less than intriguing. But the artifice shows all too clearly.

    Kirk Honeycutt — Hollywood Reporter

  • Like the fork that usually comes with your airplane meal, 360 is plastic.

    Richard Corliss — TIME Magazine

  • With its international collection of mostly two-dimensional characters and its barely developed ideas on adultery, capitalism, addiction and sex, "360" is an over-plotted and dreary farrago.

    Sheri Linden — Los Angeles Times

  • 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.

    Cory Everett — The Playlist

  • Spending 111 minutes watching people at the mall would be a more illuminating study of human behavior-and undoubtedly more entertaining.

    Violet Lucca — Film Comment Magazine

  • Fizzles out with a terrible pat ending.

    Dennis Schwartz — Ozus' World Movie Reviews

  • It often feels forced and inauthentic. Perhaps it's a weakness of the direction, but ultimately the film fails to fire up all its many cylinders

    Andrew L. Urban — Urban Cinefile

  • Circular exploration of sex, love and relationships, in which interconnected characters reveal how actions, reactions and consequences impact on us all

    Louise Keller — Urban Cinefile

  • One of those movies with a plot that is intricately constructed of a bunch of seemingly unrelated parts that end up fitting together improbably, but very nicely at the end.

    Robert Roten — Laramie Movie Scope
