    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.

    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.

    If someone suggests seeing this, do a 180 - and run.

    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.

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

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

  • Peter Debruge Variety (Top Critic)
    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.

    "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.

  • William Goss Film.com (Top Critic)
    We hopscotch from person to person, continent to continent, grievance to grievance until things come thuddingly full circle (thus, the title).

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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

    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.

    It just goes to show that, even with so much talent involved behind and in front of the camera, some material just won't work.

    A carousel that gets caught up in its own whirlwind and doesn't utilize or know how to appreciate its talent properly.

    According to 360 the world is united in broken dreams and wounded hearts. It's too bad that playing R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts" on a two-hour loop could have expressed the sentiment more effectively.
