A clever little thriller/black comedy, which holds interest. 11:14 tells the inter-connected stories of a group of people, all revolving around a tragic car-accident. We see the accident, which occurs at 11:14pm, from different perspectives, as the puzzle slowly comes together.
Sure, the story works a lot on coincidence, but it's still a great build up and interesting ending, despite it being somewhat of a let-down.
The very black humour includes two sections which might just be some of the most cringing moments for men in cinema history one of them in particular had me cowering fear.
Good performances from Patrick Swayze and Hilary Swank make this a good cinematic treat.
