Collide is an action thriller/romance that's really a poor man's version of The Fast and the Furious.  I'm not sure why I enjoyed it, since it's fraught with holes. Maybe, I was just in the mood for a film I didn't have to think about. Starring the legendary Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley, the movie has a lot of cool car chases, bad guys, drug dealers, and enough action to sort of keep your interest. It has numerous flaws, but I've seen a lot worse in so-called action films. The non-linear Quentin Tarantino style is probably accidental (or just bad editing), but it does add to the overall mood. Definitely, the best part of the movie is actress Felicity Jones. She is talented, beautiful and easy on the eyes, which is probably why I liked Collide in the first place.
