The film's generic, meaningless title is a sign of the dullness to come.
- Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald, August 16, 2012
360 is a classic example of how you can't always judge a movie by its credits.
- Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor, August 10, 2012
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.
- Stephanie Merry, Washington Post, August 10, 2012
Much like its own characters, it dithers too much - and it dares too little.
- Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle, August 09, 2012
'360' is classy but utterly amorphous, and that seemingly benign title gives far too much away.
- Trevor Johnston, Time Out, August 07, 2012
Like the fork that usually comes with your airplane meal, 360 is plastic.
- Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, August 03, 2012
One thing is remarkable here: the amount of high-powered talent assembled to document the obvious.
- Rick Groen, Globe and Mail, August 03, 2012
"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.
- Kyle Smith, New York Post, August 03, 2012
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.
- Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, August 02, 2012
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.
- Manohla Dargis, New York Times, August 02, 2012
The movie makes for joyless viewing, big stars and all.
- Ella Taylor, NPR, August 02, 2012
360 throws in enough cold weather, meaningful stares and cursory explorations of globalism to fool easily-impressed audiences into thinking they've seen something important, but there's nothing new or resonant going on here.
- Alonso Duralde, TheWrap, August 02, 2012
A mistake from beginning to end.
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, August 02, 2012
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.
- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, August 01, 2012
I hope Peter Morgan doesn't give up writing, and I do hope Meirelles gives up trying to be Alejandro González Iñárritu.
- Glenn Kenny, MSN Movies, August 01, 2012
We hopscotch from person to person, continent to continent, grievance to grievance until things come thuddingly full circle (thus, the title).
- William Goss, Film.com, August 01, 2012
Any lingering goodwill is sapped in the final minutes when a character earnestly opines, "We have come full circle." Talk about a cycle that needs breaking.
- Keith Uhlich, Time Out, July 31, 2012
There are fleeting moments, but Morgan's narrative promiscuity leaves 360 feeling only spread out and empty.
- Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice, July 31, 2012
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.
- James Berardinelli, ReelViews, July 30, 2012
360 has the pedigree, cast, and scope of a weighty film, but nothing much to say.
- Alison Willmore, AV Club, August 02, 2012
