I just got in from watching it. It's probably one of the best films this year.

The story is compelling, interesting and incredibly well paced. All the main cast deliver quality performances - Andrew Garfield and Jesse Eisenberg especially. Even Justin Timberlake is good. Maybe even a little better than that.

The direction is close to flawless, one of Fincher's better efforts, and the script is a tight, efficient monster. Once the dialogue gets up to speed it's fast, clever, witty - but it never panders to the audience by slowing down and letting you take it in, they are relying on you to keep up.

This isn't the facebook film, this is a David Fincher film about friends, loyalty, power and betrayal. Maybe not quite as good as fight club or Se7en, but it's pretty damn close.

What the fuck?

God i hate social networking.
What is wrong with people these days?
What happened to just visiting people, or calling them, or even sms.

All it seems like is a dick-measuring contest to see who has the most "friends", half of which they dont even know.
And to all those facebook post-whores, nobody gives a fuck about what you had for breakfast.
Dont even get me started on the "games".




Sorry, im just a big hater of social networking, and the fact they made a movie about it is just sad.

"A story about the founders of the social-networking website, Facebook."

thats enough to be about facebook to not deserve existing to me, if I wanna watch a movie on loyalty, power and betrayal, a movie about some creators of a shitty site isn't where I would turn.

Braveheart maybe? or Robin Hood (New one haven't seen the old one in a while) jk.

It looks stupid and boring so I doubt I'll see it

...I can't tell whether you're being serious or sarcastic...either way I would seriously agree with you on the first bit...although for the sake of not being flamed by any Scots on the forum I'll skip the last bit

well I'm half scottish, so it should be fine, I just own the angry attitude, I'm still too british to punch a burning terrorist in the face for example.

Take note the wording in your own quote; the movie is about the founders of Facebook, not about the site itself.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?
