Saw this movie yesterday, left very disappointed. I read some of thereviews so I wasn't expecting too much, but it was even worse than Ihad thought it would be. The writing was utterly terrible, the plot waspoorly done, and even the acting was only decent, a surprising resultconsidering the well-known cast. The overall concept of The Circleinitially sounds interesting, but when explored in depth and presentedthrough the film, multiple flaws can be found and at times, it almostseems "stupid". As the movie progresses, the main character's choicesand actions seem contradictory to how she was introduced, and itbecomes hard for the audience to relate to her and put themselves inher shoes. By the end of the movie, it became quite clear that TheCircle had hoped to offer some profound social commentary on technologyand human behaviour, but ultimately failed to do so by creating such apredictable and "cheesy" film. The dialogue was almost laughable attimes, and there wasn't a single character that felt complex or real.While somewhat entertaining due to the futuristic depictions oftechnology and fast-paced plot, The Circle offers little more thanthat. Rather than provoke discussion or any deep thoughts afterviewing, it leaves you with a large sense of disappointment anddissatisfaction with the way in which the writing and the story werecarried out, as well as frustration with the immense amount of plotholes and motive flaws. Overall, The Circle tries to make a name foritself amongst the many "dangers of technology" movies, but as always,lazy writing and a poor and predictable plot can only lead to thedisappointing result it ends up being. See The Guardians of the GalaxyVol. 2 instead. Anything else.
