The Circle REVIEWS

  • Terrible. Just plain awful.

    May 13th, 2017

    Saw this movie yesterday, left very disappointed. I read some of the reviews so I wasn't expecting too much, but it was even worse than I had thought it would be. The writing was utterly terrible, the plot was poorly done, and even the acting was only decent, a surprising result considering the well-known cast. The overall concept of The Circle in...

  • waste of time

    May 31st, 2017

    If you are going to pick a lead actress, at least pick one who can act and has depth. I don't care how many movies she's made. IT WAS AWFUL.. And the trailer was definitely misleading as story didn't pan out as someone fighting the system but as someone joining in and egging on the worst instincts in this cult and the public. I guess that does rep...

  • Heartless movie. Unreal characters, weak story, ridiculous message.

    June 1st, 2017

    There is a passage in this movie that's so incredibly heartless. It turned an otherwise bad movie into something I can almost consider my enemy.. The passage I speak of is when Mercer (in a totally unrealistic way, but that's beside the point) kills himself by driving off a bridge. Mae is ultimately responsible for that. We see her in bed, being s...

  • Makes you think, but it's not completely memorable

    May 10th, 2017

    The Circle is a movie based on a novel by Dave Eggers. It stars Emma Watson and Tom Hanks and it's set in a near future where they have this company called The Circle which is pretty much like Google, but even bigger. Emma Watson stars as Mae Holland, a young woman who gets a job in the company, but when she sees what the company really is doing, ...

  • The Circle - Splash of Reality

    April 30th, 2017

    Kept spoilers 'light' and used only as needed to describe the opinion of the film. This film sticks front-and-center an indisputable fact that technology unchecked can and will go to the extreme. I suspect (unproven) that Ms. Watson signed on to do this film as it holds a moral and carries a social lesson. If you have children, teens, friends obli...

  • A Techno Thriller Adapted from Novel

    May 3rd, 2017

    Well, it was a bit of interesting to see this movie. I was thinking that it would be a total thriller from beginning till end. However, it turned out that the movie was more drama than thriller. It was categorized as techno-thriller which I think was a term used to describe a movie where the thriller was more on technology side. Unfortun...

  • Spoiler free review of The Circle. An interesting movie that really makes you think.

    May 6th, 2017

    Last weekend, I went to see the circle. Now, after thinking about the movie for almost an entire week I can say that I am ready to write a review. I give this movie a 7-7.5 because I did enjoy and like it, but it wasn't perfect and I did have questions. My main problem was that the movie was too short, and I think it didn't do a proper job explain...

  • much better than the low rating would suggest

    May 7th, 2017

    I just don't get why this movie is getting so many low ratings. I thought it was terrific. The writing was great, the story plausible, and the acting excellent. The story depicts a technological future that is nearly upon us. I almost didn't go see it because of the low rating, but I'm glad I did. ...

  • Nicely Made but Confused Message Film

    July 4th, 2017

    A "message" film that is confused. Tom hanks is wasted and barely used. The main character, Meg, often does illogical and really stupid things (connect ALL of your personal social media with your work's personal account? No. Go completely transparent so everything u do is record and viewed? No!Involve your close friend and family with this invasio...

  • Full of endless circular logic and irony

    April 28th, 2017

    Director James Ponsoldt's The Circle depicts the story of a not-so-distant future, or perhaps an alternative present, in which one company dominates digital media, data gathering, and surveillance services. Based upon the four-year-old novel by author Dave Eggers, you'll notice some stark similarities between this motion picture narrative and the ...
