A Movie Review: Crash

“Moving at the speed of light, we are bound to collide with each other.”

“You think you know who you are. You have no idea.”

Starring: Sandra Bullock, Ryan Phillippe, Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser

I highly recommended this film to all movie fans out there. After watching this film, you will learn values and of God’s magical touch. This film has a lot of values to learn and to think na minsan, kung ano pa ang movie na walang katuturan ay iyon pa ang ating pinapanood. According to a famous movie critic, “This film is dynamite and the acting is a knockout" and I totally agree with him. The emotions of the actors are really effective that I was taken aback and was totally awed by the film. Crash! Hands down!
