Product Description

Product Description

This is two stories in one, and it stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Bobby he is the boyfriend and Green Card wanna be holder to Lynn Collins who plays Kate. The film starts with them on Brooklyn Bridge in New York where they toss a coin and on seeing which side it is they both run off in opposite directions. Then as if by magic they both appear at the other end to meet the other one where the stories diverge and we get two alternate tales- one is `yellow' and one is `green', but not sure what the significance was except the yellow version has a yellow cab in it (?)!

Incidentally this is not two different perspectives on the same story, but two completely different stories. One finds them picking up a stray dog, then going round to her moms where they face up to family and life issues, loss and a bad case of thespianisis. The other sees them finding a lost mobile phone in the back of the cab and then getting into a load of high octane adventures with a hit man or two who want it back.

Of the two the action story is the more gripping and so it was strange to juxtapose that with a story of family frailty and relationship issues. Had the latter been more explosive like a take from Tennessee Williams play for example then it would have been a better foil for the duelling of the two tales. As it is more subtle it sort of keeps letting the film go slightly off the boil. Then it is back to the action etc. And it is all full on again

All of the acting is fine but even Gordon-Levitt (playing a Canadian who does not say `aboot' - as if) can not breathe enough life into his character in places, and we all know he is a top rate actor and probably chose to do this as he likes supporting indie films, much to his credit.

Uncertainty is about a young couple of flip a coin to decide what they're going to do with the rest of their day. We, the viewers, are then treated to two different intermingling stories (parallel universes if you like) involving the same couple and showing us what happened along each path.

It's kind of like Sliding Doors, but with a bit more action in it. One story involves the couple on the run from dangerous gangsters and the other involves them going home to their family.

Now, it could just be me (I prefer the `action' genre generally), but I found the half of the film dedicated to the couple on the run from the gang to be the far more entertaining of the two, while the story about them confronting issues with their family a little dull.

It could just be me. Maybe someone who prefers drama over action would prefer the other one. Either way, everyone plays their part pretty well and there are worse films to watch.

This film starts off ok, A couple find a mobile phone in a cab,some rather undesirable people want it back,But ends up going nowhere. What got me it switches back and fore to past and present in their lives,telling a story of family life and then jumping forward to the caos of the present as they are being hunted down over this phone.This continues all through the film and then ends, unless Im missing something, the film finishes,almost as if someones forgot about the ending.Its a pitty really as it could have been a really good film,it had potential but fell down.

I bought this because I've been enjoying other Joseph Gordon Levitt movies such as Hesher , Brick and The Lookout. This is a decent effort spoiled by the fact that they obviously ran out of time , money or interest to write an ending. My wife , daughter and i all just looked at each other and shrugged. Really lame way to finish what is actually a good film up to that point. Oh well you cant love every movie and it was cheap.

The idea behind this film seems good, but it fell very short of delivering on its promises. Overall there isn't really very much substance to it all and I found myself counting down the minutes till it ended so I could gleefully eject it from the DVD player and send it back (it was a rental). The story is in two halves, based on the flip of a coin, and each half follows the two different outcomes of the coin toss - it flits between the stories sometimes very frequently. The the more action-orientated half is quite good for a little while, but ultimately peters out into nothing, and the more drama-orientated half is just SO boring and really, really goes nowhere. I also found that in places it was very hard to hear what was being said - the music was louder than the dialogue and the DVD had no subtitles, so maybe I missed something between that and my almost nodding off from sheer boredom. In the end I do not take any message from this film other than maybe the young American couple are bad at decision making. So it was in fact aptly entitled. Give it a go if you like, though personally I'd like my 1hrs 40mins back!
