eh thriller with some talent, but not much else. luketic hasn’t made a decent film since legally blonde, which was his first feature length film. the leads are basically all mailing this one in, though for gary oldman that still means a decent enough performance. it’s hard to believe that films like this get made. even with all the star power you’d think someone along the line would have noticed that the screenplay lacked originality.
the film does have one good moment, though, where liam helmsworth says that people don’t really want to be connected as much as everyone says – they actually want to be separate and feel connected. quite true. i think a lot of the social media stuff is about feeling o.g. and having the scoop before others as well as having your ego fed.
