CHANGING LANES (Theatrical Release USA 2002)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Changing Lanes—interesting exploration movie—takes a look at how something small can escalate into something large. The movie is worth a watch if only for the reason of watching how that process can work and shedding light on this particular human behavior. Good acting by Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Affleck lets the storyline unfold in a natural way so that a revealing of human behavior happens. The movie becomes good conversation after watching. Director Roger Michelle did a lot with a small incident’s unfolding process. It works as a thriller, drama piece. Worth a watch.

Storyline

Rage, revenge, and payback in New York City after a car accident occurs.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It becomes a thriller with just the right amount of suspense that keeps the question of ‘What’s going to happen next’ alive and well. Be aware it is not, however, a ‘nail biter’ film.
