GRIDLOCK'D: 4.5

A very slow moving film that never really gets off the ground. The acting was good, but in spite of the script, which left much to be desired; which is really too bad since there were some very positive messages in the film, such as strong personal relationships between races and how the system's red tape can inhibit people from getting help. There was no shortage of storyline and subplots, but the movie just kind of wandered along slowly never really inciting emotions, save for the few comical lines which did draw out some laughter.
