Winner of 3 Academy Awards including Best Picture. An all star cast of characters with alot of different aspects of racism and disparate treatment. This had some real tear jerker scenes that will get you every single time you watch crash! A must watch!

Outstanding watch, the writing was exceptional, and the story interesting and provocative. The story is about how peoples lives are entangled, we get to see a fair amount of racism from just about every character, this helps keep tension through the whole movie.

Sandra Bullock has an outstanding performance; Don Cheadle gives us another solid performance; Matt Dillon steps it up and gives us a powerful and heartfelt performance. Though truly Michael Pena steals the show with his performance.

This movie is intense, and keeps you guessing, one situation creates another. Very cleaver use of foreshadowing. This is an excellent piece of theatrical artwork.

This compelling urban thriller tracks the volatile inerrsection of a multiethnic cast of characters struggling to overcome their fears as they careen in and out of one another's lives. In the gray area between black and white, victim and aggressor, during the next 36 hours, they will all collide.

My husband and I enjoyed the movie. It was quite intense at times, but well done.

This was better than I expected. If you are a student of sociology you might bring something away from this film. If your an emotional basket case I would avoid this one.

Heavy handed
Stephen J. Mellor | Tucson, AZ | 03/31/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"From the first crash scene, you understand the message. It is delivered in a crude, unsubtle, and heavy-handed way.

That message is then repeated--crudely, unsubtly--and heavy-handedly--over and over and again.

The dialog is unbelievable, the story less so, the coincidences beyond the wildest imagination, and it just goes on and on, playing the one note, over and over. Heavy handedly.

There are a few moments that ring true, rather like a broken clock is right twice a day. The acting (barring Matt Dillon) is excrable, and I thought if I heard Sandra Bullock and the woman who appears on early on (the one molested by Matt Dillon) get hysterical one more time, I was going to whack them both on the mouth.

Did I say "heavy handed"?

To think this movie was even nominated for best picture is a travesty. Winning the BP Oscar is simply nuts--especially against such a good field.

If I could give this zero stars, I would. Or less."
A bit overrated don't you think?

"I liked Crash. I really did. It was a good movie. But best movie of the year? Mehhh, I don't think so. Allow me to explain: First off, I felt like I've seen this movie before, a couple of times actually. Secondly, I found the characters to be a little thin. Racism, lets be honest, is still a strong issue in America today but I think the reasons for a character's racism should have been the focal point of the film and not necessarily the consequences of their racism. We've seen that before too. And what was with the montage toward the end where all the characters were shown to be having their great cathertic moments while the soft music - that sounded an awful like Aimee Mann's "Save Me" - is played? Magnolia anyone? I'm not slamming the movie at all. Please don't get me wrong. As I said, I liked the movie. It was good. One scene in particular moved me, but I think it was just so over-hyped and it seemed to be the only movie not revolving around [...] characters to be nominated for an Oscar and I think that helped it out in a year so much about [...] this and [...] that and traditional morals and blah blah blah. And didn't you find the movie a little preachy? Wasn't it a bit smug and too self-involved and wasn't it kind of saying: Look how much more enlightened I am than you are? Pretentious? But I digress. Crash, a worthy movie, but really, seriously, honestly, not a great movie. Really not close. I'd take the Crash with James Spader and directed by David Cronenberg any day instead."
Well intentioned, but over rated
S. Walther | Las Vegas, NV USA | 07/12/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film tugs at every emotion and stereotype you can imagine, however, it often tugs them in unintended ways. Starting with the opening shot of two young youths complaining about racism and profiling... well meaning and impactful, yet, the exact thing that they are complaining about, they do, completely unravelling all of their arguments... While I expect the movie intended to set up the dualism of racism and predjudice in many of its situations, it goes to extremes beyond what is required to drive the story forward.

However, let us not detract from the performances of Matt Dillion, Sandra Bullock and Ryan Phillippe. While the movie did win the BEST PICTURE award and deserved the nomination (but not the award), I think it's a bit overrated but enjoyable none-the-less."
