Did I really have to give this awful film a score at all?
I watched this "film" while making a Sunday Roast as I didn't think it would hold up to much and I was soooo right. I found slicing roast beef and checking the veg far more enjoyable than trying not to laugh at the silly story-line and cardboard acting.
I guessed what was coming right from the beginning.
It seemed as if they took the concierge man straight off a hot-dog stand and gave him a part in the film. Either that or it was one of the directors' Grandad!
Unless you have something far more interesting to take your mind off this horror, leave well alone !!!
Firstly I have to admit to being a bit of a geek and I thought this film would be just a bio of the monster that is.... Facebook.
I had no idea that the conception of 'lil old Facebook was so controversial.
I was pleasantly surprised that, although I loved the Geek-isms it also had a great storyline. The actors are well suited to their characters and play them well without the usual over-indulgence when making a movie like this. I swayed between feeling sorry for the creators and envy for the groupies!
Clever, surprises around corners and certainly made the watcher think (although my head hurt at times).
At the beginning of the film I was slightly confused, but this just added to my "ahhh I see" moments. I was left wondering how a persons mind can create something like this, although maybe he dreamt it ;-) The acting is brilliant, the pace was perfect and the characters were totally believable. There were times in the film that I didn't think I would be able to keep up but it just grabbed me by the scruff of my neck and dragged me along. I think it is genius to make such a visually stunning and trilling film also very touching. The SFX were totally believable and pulled me in.
How on earth did this get an IMDb rating of 8.7! I had to check a couple of time to make sure that: 1. I had watched the same flick as the other reviewers 2. I hadn't fallen asleep and woken up on a Sunday afternoon in 1980 3. My fondue had not been stolen for the plot and 4. That I hadn't missed a guest appearance from Columbo! I love a good "easy watch" film but this was just boring. I feel the storyline was weak, not knowing whether to follow the tales of woe about the lawyer or the trial of the boy with neither being strong enough to carry the film. The only good thing I can say was that the cast were well suited to the film (although that's like being told you were a good swimmer when everyone else round you are doing the Doggy Paddle) and it made me crave a cheese sandwich. I'm off to cleanse myself with an episode of Perry Mason!
Terrible, predictable nonsense. Some "Spoilers" contained.
I want back the hour and a half that I spent watching this film!
After reading the storyline I looked forward to a film that I thought would be reminiscent of Sybil (one of my favourite films of the era) but I was bitterly disappointed. The only similarity is that one character has multiple personalities, oh and for a film made in 2010 there was enough cheese to make a 70's fondue! The story is about a woman's visit to her husbands home-town and his brother to find out more about her husbands past as he has tried to commit suicide. I spent the film waiting for some sort of surprise or twist but there was neither. The acting was truly awful and the actors looked like they were reading from cue cards. Anyway, I'm glad to be home and off to watch another film on DVD to take the bad taste out of my mouth!
