Jay Baruchel refuses to rely on the now standard Michael Cera nerd tics (the ubiquitous stuttering and the quiet-sensitive intelligence posing). Instead, he finds ways to live inside the skin and life of a good guy who has unfortunately listened a bit too carefully to the jokingly disparaging remarks of those around him for too long. Grade: B.
With so much drama and so many crossed narrative lines, the comparisons to 'Traffic' and 'Crash' will seem blatant and overplayed, but the aim here is more tightly focused than it might initially seem. There's a lush, overgrown forest, but the tallest tree in the center is Max Brogan (Harrison Ford). He comes to illustrate all sides of the immigration debate without merely flip-flopping between positions. Grade: C.
