Affleck/Jackson/Collette ~ Changing Lanes

South African director Roger Michell directs this hit suspense thriller starring Ben Affleck and Samuel L. Jackson. Michell is actually very skilled and has a tremendous amount of mainstream appeal. He also directed last years Venus, which was another solid film albeit very different from Changing Lanes. Ben Affleck plays Gavin, a successful Wall Street attorney who must file a power of appointment for his company, which is run by his father-in-law played by Sydney Pollack. The document will sign a company over to his law firm and that company is owned by a dying man. Ethical questions certainly surround the document and as things unfold we find out even more. Doyle is played by Samuel L. Jackson, he is an insurance salesman and a recovering alcoholic who wants badly to restore his family before his wife takes his children away to the west coast. We get the feeling that Doyle is a wounded man and his actions are unacceptable at times. Actually both characters are deeply flawed and that is what makes their collision so engaging.

On his way to court to file this crucial document, Gavin gets into a car accident with Doyle. He doesn't prioritize the accident and instead must leave the scene to make it to court on time. Doyle's car will not drive and he is in the middle of a highway median when Gavin takes off in a rush. It of course begins to rain. Doyle himself was on his way to court and when he eventually gets there he finds out that he is too late. His goal was to surprise his wife with a mortgage loan he just received so his family would stay. He was attempting to get some resolution to whatever chaos he may have caused his family before this movie begins. Unfortunately for Gavin the power of appointment was left at the scene of the accident and is in Doyle's possession.

This engaging, clever thriller is in fact a morality tale that shows the importance of tolerance, patience and respect in today`s society. Although this may sound preachy, the movie is actually quite compelling and consistent, showcasing the darker side of an average person. Ben Affleck and Samuel Jackson give convincing performances as the two antagonists who have a car accident in a morning. Problem is, that little accident will lead to a twisted, troubled day where a revenge process builds a road to insanity and despair. Director Roger Michell knows how to build tension and suspense, delivering a tight social thriller after his previous and unengaging work in "Notting Hill". Sometimes the mood and atmosphere comes close to that of a David Fincher movie, discussing urban paranoia and the anger it generates. Unfortunately, the predictable ending steals some of the impact of the picture, approaching a typical Hollywood resolution. Still, "Changing Lanes" is a very well-crafted movie and one of the more intriguing surprises of 2002.

The film has the same dark, almost dream-like quality that Eyes Wide Shut and Vanilla Sky do--and the same deliberate pacing. As such, it allows the viewer to think through what is happening, to ponder the ethical and very personal questions raised. On the other hand, faster pacing might have put an edge to the suspense.
The plot is real world and easy to relate to--two men are facing life-changing appointments and get into an car accident. Affleck plays a rising-star lawyer who is about to make/or lose millions. He has no time for working out the accident details, and leaves Jackson, who plays an insurance salesman who needs to get to his child custody hearing, stranded. What follows is a cycle of emotions, revenge, one-upsmanship, and ultimately, decisions by both characters about how to live life.
The redeeming features of this movie are the realism, relevance, and moral tension that we're invited to engage. The acting is subtle, yet charged. The ending will please most. My one recommendation would have been a faster pacing to bring additional tension to the action side of the plot.
Bottom-line: This is a strong movie, well worth viewing--excellent for discussion.

After watching this movie and 'The Sum Of All Fears', both of which came out and the same time, I think it's safe to say this is the better of the two. In this sometimes subtle thriller, Ben Affleck stars with Samuel L. Jackson. Affleck plays the part of a big-shot attorney whose supposed-to-be-pro-bono job takes a turn for the worst when he loses a red folder after an accident on the freeway. He'd met Doyle Gibson during that accident, and in turn he has the folder. This then starts an awesome brawl between the two men, who are both seeking successful revenge to make up for the [bad] days they'd each had. And as the battle between them picks up, so does the movie.
I find it disappointing that Affleck and Jackson had never, before 'Changing Lanes', been in a movie together. They work so well as enemies that you're never able to chose a side; or pick a favorite. Both characters do things they'd probably never do, but in the cases they're in, they have no choice. And throughout the movie, you'll keep wondering to yourself why he doesn't just give the folder back. But remember, if he did that, there would be no movie.
As far as a supporting cast, there's not much. The appearance by Amanda Peet ('The Whole Nine Yards' and 'Whipped') is good, yet minimal. But to be honest, the film doesn't need much support. It's very strong on its own; Affleck and Jackson really mold the movie into an original piece of work. And defining this movie in a genre is difficult. It's not a comedy, nor is it a true action film. In the end it's just a thriller; and a great one at that. I gave this movie only 4 stars, and not 5, because of its (lack of) supporting cast. As I said, the film is still very strong without it, but it would have been nice to see some more familiar faces.
