Storyline

Five very different characters are thrown together in one weird, mashed up day. It started out like any other, but 24 hours later everything had changed. South West 9 takes you through the windscreen of the new millenium. The death of idealism, capitalism, religion and hippies. Even the drugs don't work anymore. The 'summer of love' generation have come down and they're ready to riot. Seattle. Stockholm. Paris. Genoa. May Day riots. Written by Anonymous

23 September 2002 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie is by no means truly awful. It just often feels like it. It is directed with a real verve, and there are one or two genuinely fresh touches which threaten to lift it into the same area as something watchable. But at the end of the day, the one word that describes this movie accurately is "stale".

The "script" is a horrible misfire. It tries (and fails miserably) to:

*Be hip

*Contain likeable characters

*Rip off Pulp Fiction / Human Traffic / Anything you can imagine

*Be profound

So. How do you build a film on foundations like that?

Exactly. You can't. What more can you say?

It looks nice, some of the better (Who the hell cast this movie?!) actors try hard, and the locations ring far truer than the whitewashed London of, "Notting Hill".

But trust me, you'll be bored.
