360 is a group drama movie directed by Fernando Meirelles, starring Anthony Hopkins, Ben Foster, Rachel Weisz, Jude Law and many other international actors. The film has been shot in many countries starting from Vienna, Paris, London and Colorado. Revolving around a group of people belonging to very different social backgrounds and how their lives weave together. Peter Morgan, the writer of the movie, took inspiration from Arthur Schnitzler's Reigen, which had the zeal and enthusiasm in it. But here in 360, it often feels fake forced and inauthentic.

Plot: The movie seems an eye candy with so many locations swapping so many famous actors popping in and out of the scenes. The movie interconnects the world, and we flawlessly move along with every new location. It portrays a beautiful message that there is both good and bad within all of us and also confronts us with the reality of 21st century. The actors and the director have done a brilliant job and should be applauded for the same. There are many scenes that have been pushed hard to seriousness and boldness. Because of too many characters sometimes things are difficult to understand but it is all worth giving a second thought.

For people who like to watch serious cinema, this movie is a perfect go but for those who are expecting it to be an entertainment flick it is a disappointment. At a point, it seems tiresome and boring with the plot going here and there. We come across moral triumph and failure in human life which comes out through the movie very abruptly and vaguely. 360 is a movie with so many talented actors involved but still lacks behind in presenting the exact purpose.

Verdict: It turns out to be a mess instead of a masterpiece.
