The film's generic, meaningless title is a sign of the dullness to come. full review

Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald

360 is a classic example of how you can't always judge a movie by its credits. full review

Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor

Though the cinematography looks sleek, with shots through windows and in mirrors, split screens and city lights that blur and sharpen, the stories equate to a tangled mess. full review

Stephanie Merry, Washington Post

Much like its own characters, it dithers too much - and it dares too little. full review

Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle

Like the fork that usually comes with your airplane meal, 360 is plastic. full review

Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine

It's as interesting as a viewing exercise as it must have been as a writing exercise. But traveling 360 degrees with your story means you end up right back where you started. full review

Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service

One thing is remarkable here: the amount of high-powered talent assembled to document the obvious. full review

Rick Groen, Globe and Mail

"360" gives us much in the way of international anguish, frustrated coupling and longing stares, but there's very little plausibility or genuine emotion in its egregiously contrived story of ardor gone amiss. full review

Kyle Smith, New York Post

With its international collection of mostly two-dimensional characters and its barely developed ideas on adultery, capitalism, addiction and sex, "360" is an over-plotted and dreary farrago. full review

Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times

Mr. Morgan has written some good movies, notably "The Queen," and Mr. Meirelles has won fans for neo-exploitation titles like "City of God." There's no way to know what went wrong with "360" and whether it was this uninvolving and shallow from the start. full review

Manohla Dargis, New York Times

The movie makes for joyless viewing, big stars and all. full review

A mistake from beginning to end. full review

Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com

360 has a circular structure that's deftly pleasing, though the human drama is just facile enough to make it seem, in the end, a little too much like connect the dots played with people. full review

Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

I hope Peter Morgan doesn't give up writing, and I do hope Meirelles gives up trying to be Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. full review

Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies

We hopscotch from person to person, continent to continent, grievance to grievance until things come thuddingly full circle (thus, the title). full review

William Goss, Film.com

There are fleeting moments, but Morgan's narrative promiscuity leaves 360 feeling only spread out and empty. full review

Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice

A better title: A Few Famous and Not-So-Famous Actors Bump into Each Other and Don't Do or Say Much of Consequence. Wordy, yes, but accurate. full review

James Berardinelli, ReelViews

La Ronde 2011-style is simply a game and its makers expert gamesmen. The film is never less than intriguing. But the artifice shows all too clearly. full review

Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter

With a multilingual cast of mostly unfamiliar faces, plus a few stars, 360 feels too abstract, orchestrating break-ups and hook-ups in a passionless vacuum. full review

Peter Debruge, Variety
