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...

  • 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, ...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • It's the Circle of Politically Dull!

    April 29th, 2017

    Robbie K back, after being off the grid for a week. Tonight's review is on the latest "dystopian" feature film called The Circle. Former Hermione Granger, and more recently Belle, Emma Watson leads the film as she attempts to take us into the workings of a technological conglomerate who has knowledge as its key principle. Yet the trailers paint a ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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...

  • Hollywood, please, give real screenwriters a chance!

    August 14th, 2017

    One would think that a top notch producer-duo like Anthony Bregman and Gary Goetzman, an amazing cinematographer like Matthew Libatique, an unbelievable composer like Danny Elfman, two talented editors like Lisa Lassek and Franklin Peterson, and incredible actors like Tom Hanks and Emma Watson would guarantee a great film, right? -- Wrong... this ...

  • The Circle (2017)

    May 2nd, 2017

    I was a big fan of Dave Eggers' A Hologram for the King. It was a fantastic read for enjoyment and to analyze. The film adaptation also did not disappoint. When The Circle was announced as a film I immediately checked out the book. To my disappointment, the film wasn't as interesting an got to bogged down to its technological ventures and wasn't e...

  • 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...
