Three people, each with their own worries and miseries and unknown to each other, finally discover solace. Set against the backdrop of two world disasters, the south east Asian tsunami and the London tube bombings, the movie narrates the struggle that each one is facing with the matter of death. George Lonegan (Damon) is an American psychic who unlike others in the business has some truly unique powers which allow him to make a connection with the dead and convey messages. He cant run his life this way anymore and wants to get the so called 'power' out of him in order to run a normal life. A French TV anchor Marie Lelay (France) has a near death experience in a tsunami while holiday in Asia which shakes her life and she is hunting for life's answers. Two British twins, Marcus (McLaren) and Jason (McLaren) are very good friends more than brothers when Jason suddenly dies in a freak road accident. Marcus cant seem to get over his brothers death and is trying to find someone who can answer his questions but finds no one. Half an hour into the movie and you realise its going the Babel way where the individual plots would eventually merge. There really is no fault with the plots per se but the coming together of the entire storyline was predictable to some extent and not all that dramatic and lacked a certain degree of climax. Coming from the Clint Eastwood stable, one expects much more and something far better but that said, its not all that bad either.
Thumbs up: Some good pieces of acting, enticing plot line
Thumbs down: Weak climax, end is not as impressive as one would have liked it to be
