  • Summary: Uncertaintly thrusts a young couple, Bobby and Kate, into two alternate storylines on the same summer day in New York City. A flip of a coin sends the pair in two opposite directions – an afternoon in Brooklyn forces them to confront self-discovery, loss and the value of family, and in Manhattan the day suddenly takes a turn into a break-neck tale of intrigue, suspense and murder.

  1. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lynn Collins are so interesting that it's easy to put up with the decision-making dithering that goes along with the title.
  2. A taut, skillful exercise in cinematic clockwork.
  3. In a way, the film ultimately gets snagged in its own contraption.
  4. 42
    The leads are immensely appealing, but the sum of their experiences equals nothing more profound than two earnest people wrestling with a tough decision.
  5. Reviewed by: Todd McCarthy

    Half formulaic and half simply unimaginative.
  6. 38
    Dicey entertainment, indeed.

    Una película con buena propuesta artística, pero con falta de fondo. Reseña: http://cineplacebos.webnode.es/news/dos-colores-dos-historias-ningun-sentido/ Cuando dos historias no se entienden para dónde van. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Incredibly slow and directionless. The characters aren't fleshed out and are unlikable, particularly the female protagonist.

    The movie begins with two lovers running in opposite directions on a bridge, which somehow initiates what seems like two parallel worlds with two sets of identical protagonists. I was interested in the beginning, and accepted the absurdity of some of the character's actions on the grounds that the film was centered around some surreal dream sequence. However, this development isn't expanded upon (with the exception that every notable event is mirrored in the opposing story line.) At any rate, a whole lot of nothing happens and is concluded with an extremely unsatisfying ending. Most of the movie was spent with each set of characters doing trivial things (such as buying olive oil) or running away from some non-descript men with guns as fast as the female lead could run (accompanied with much whining). Damn you netflix and your awful grading scale.
