Overall enjoyable and recommended but it did two things incredibly well: 1) visualization of computer interactions was elegant, simple and highly effective. Huge props to them for this tactic. 2) managed to make Parenting in the Age of Internet an incredibly scary prospect.
Believable story and characters that are all flawed JUST enough. Oh, and a nice soundtrack
Lots of familiar tropes - crazy crew, innocent new kid and quiet no-nonsense paternal leader... But still enjoyable within its predictability. The battle scenes were quite intense. If this was an Oscar grab, it falls flat. If it's just a "war makes you an asshole and then you die" movie, it succeeds wildly.
If I were a more eloquent individual I could wax on about how powerful and important this movie is. The story of such a huge dissent told while it is happening is a bit unreal. I wish there were some uplifting message at the end about governments reigning it in but I saw none.
Must see for anyone. Period.
Cinematography was honestly gorgeous. Can't sing it's praises enough. Acting was believable and solid. However, Story was boring, predictable and unengaging (for me, remember this is subjective).
Would not recommend but would suggest looking up screenshots or snippets just to enjoy the cinematography.
