Quotes

[first lines]
Casey Stein: [narrating] Reasons. We all got our reasons to do crazy and reckless things in life. Mostly they don't help you though. Not when you're left to pick up the pieces. But if the reason's love, maybe it's not so crazy, 'cause people believe in love. They know it keeps the world turning. And right now, that's the only thing keeping me alive.

Some fluid action sequences don't just COLLIDE with fluent storytelling.
2 September 2016 | by witra asligaSee all my reviews

Collide is very much alike Creevy's previous work, Welcome To The Punch (2013) with additional love story between Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones as plot driven.

Casey needs money to cure his sick girlfriend, Juliette. A slick drug dealer, Geran send him on a mission, hijack a truck that belongs to notorious criminal, Hagen Kahl who can do anything to get rid of anyone in his way.

Here we have two antagonists as the opposites, perfectly crafted by Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley, who are responsible to put Hoult into a series of captivating cat and mouse action caper. At some points, i personally start to think that Hoult is the 'real cat' here who got 9 lives to live.

Relationships between these one dimensional characters felt under developed. Still cast members had shown what they've got to keep our interest going.

The stages are set extremely well to pull us straight away from start with only little time to think but somehow we already have sights on the finish line. A twist might be explained through exposition about 10 minutes before end credits.

Well, some fluid action sequences don't just COLLIDE with fluent storytelling. And it takes 99 minutes of running time to find out why.
