Quick money always ends in a big trouble!

It's one of those films with aimless narration. Indeed, it has a nice cast and characters with the basic storyline, but that did not expand and explored well as it should have been. At least the pace of the narration looked fine. Some characters looked unnecessary, and so a couple of scenes. If these all were managed, then still it could have been a decent film. Because since it is an action- adventure, they did not generate those crucial parts like the stunts and dialogues related to the gangster thing to turn it a better film in its kind.

The two veteran actors coming together for the first time added more curiosity than flavour we are looking for. They did okay and so the rest of the cast. Ideal runtime, a few stuffs were in the favour of the film, but those were not enough for the overall success. If the same film was made from the non-English world like perhaps Germany, which was one of the producers of the film would have done better than this existing one which is very familiar with this language.

People would watch it only for Hopkins and Kingley and so did am I. But they might end in disappointment, or that could be the reason to rate it fairly better. Whatever, this is an okay film, which is barely entertaining and of all, not a boring film. So trying it for one is okay, but I think not worth if you have got plenty of options over this one.

6/10

Don't COLLIDE with this film

The advertisement for COLLIDE leads you to believe that it is a "thrill-a-minute, fast-paced, speeding ride through the Autobahn."

Oh, that I wish it was.

COLLIDE tells the story of an American backpacker, with some sort of shady background, who goes to "any length" to save his girlfriend.  This length puts him in the middle of two European drug lords.

At 1 hour, 36 minutes, the best thing I can say about COLLIDE is that it is short, but it seemed a heckuva lot longer.

Nicholas Hoult (MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, X:MEN - APOCALYPSE) stars as Casey Stein and Felicty Jones  (STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE and THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING) stars as his American girlfriend.  Both are British and have very peculiar American accents...oh...and no real chemistry with each other.  They stumble through this film and never really hold the audiences attention and, fundamentally, I did not really care what happened to them.

And that is because the two warring drug dealers were played (or should I say OVER played) by Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley - two actors who haven't seen a scene they couldn't chew - and chew they do.  This is, actually, the only real spark in this film.  When these two are on screen, they are somewhat entertaining, all things considered.

Of course, compared to the rest of the film, that's like saying they are the most sober men in a drunk tank - the bar for quality in this film is not very high.

The direction, by Eran Creevy is pedestrian at best.  The action scenes, while avoiding - for the most part - relying on "shaky-cam", are unspectacular, unthrilling and dull while the acting scenes are hammy, over-the-top or underplayed to such an extent that everyone involved seemed bored.

And, so was I, unless Hopkins and/or Kingsley were on screen, then I perked up a bit.

Letter Grade:  C (only because of Hopkins and Kingsley)

4 (out of 10) Stars and you can take that to the Bank (ofMarquis)

What were Hopkins and Kingsley thinking?

When I saw Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingley's names attached to this movie I thought how bad could it be? Well, it's bad. Really bad. Dumb as a brick. Great chase sequences on the autobahns but a story that is as lame as they come. Girl needs kidney operation so boyfriend hijacks truck full of drugs and gangsters come after him. Endless escapes that happen SOOOO conveniently to keep the story going. Couldn't the producers have sprung for an extra couple of writers to punch up the story and make it less predictable? Were Hopkins and Kingsley so desperate for a paycheck that they were willing to stoop to acting in this trash? Your heart bleeds for them. When I saw the movie cost twenty nine million to make I was astounded as I figured well below ten. The distribution company that picked up this movie when the first distributor went bankrupt should pray to God that they don't join the first company in the bankruptcy courts. Don't hold your breath for any solid figures at the box office. And who are the fools likening this to the Fast and the Furious franchise? Not even close!
