Reviews

Mae Holland (Emma Watson) lands a job at a tech company called The Circle. A book of nightmares company that wants to monitor the entire world through a new multi-sensory device network called SeeChange, a bit like a one portal internet but in reverse and in real life. I bet Alex Jones would be going off his head when he saw this.

While the film attempts to be a techno sci-fi it comes across like it was made by people who have know idea about the tech industry whatsoever (techno garbage). Ironic since it was produced by Netflix. While "Snowden" laid out the ideas behind this movie years in the past, it is being pushed out to the masses in an amazingly underwhelming fashion, anchored by big named actors and though services that are probably already monitoring people in the same fashion as in the film.

The future is here, "The Circle" is not.

Just realised that this was Bill Paxtons' last movie. RIP. Great actor.
