Chatroom

I knew this film was meant to something scary, the title made it obvious would the story would involve, but I had low expectations, because it was rated low by critics, but I was going to give it a chance, directed by Hideo Nakata (Ring, Dark Water). Basically bored teenagers Jim (Matthew Beard), Eva (Imogen Poots), Emily (Game of Thrones' Hannah Murray) and Mo (Get Out's Daniel Kaluuya) meet William (Kick-Ass's Aaron Taylor-Johnson) online. William's charisma seduces them, but he is not what he seems, he is calculating, manipulative and does not have time for people in the real world. Jim is vulnerable and has no idea how dangerous his new friend William really is, Jim confesses he is on anti-depressants, William now knows he has found a victim, he vows to help Jim come of his drugs, and the rest of the group fall in line in their meetings and in the chatroom William creates online. Eva and Mo realise that William is not offering friendly advice, he is playing a deadly game, but it has already begun, and Jim is set on the path of self- destruction and going to do the unthinkable. Eva, Emily and Mo do their best to save Jim, but William chases them across the internet in a game of cat and mouse, shutting down their systems and cutting them off from his victim. William and Jim come face to face in blur between fantasy and reality on the underground, without online security everything has become real, it is a race against time for Jim to be saved, and to stop William, someone will meet their fate. Also starring Megan Dodds as Grace, Game of Thrones' Michelle Fairley as Rosie, The Mimic's Jacob Anderson as Si, Ophelia Lovibond as Charlotte and Richard Madden as Ripley. Taylor-Johnson is alright as the sulky teenage rebel who hates his parents and everyone, the supporting cast of up-and-coming mostly unknowns do okay but overact often, the plot could have been clever, an intimate chatroom created to lure in the most vulnerable people to punish or kill them, but it is done in a predictably dull way, it only has small moments of really dramatic stuff, a disappointing British thriller. Adequate!

I didn't feel a good story to it

Yeah of course its underrated but to be completely honest with you, i thought there wasn't a story to make the film more interesting or entertaining in a way. It was suppose to be scary but to me, it seemed like a poor budget film "trying" to be frightening and it tried too hard to have a major poor result.

I know its suppose to be about a group of teens who meet up for real and talk to one another online in order to seek revenge to their selfish families. Yeah, it sounds like it was used a lot before in movies and yet, this movie just wants to copy everything and just forget about the rest. This does not make a successful British movie, a good movie should consist of a better story line, better actors and better settings. This is one of the movies that I wouldn't have time for because it looks unfinished and poorly made! Don't watch this is all i can say........

Faceless

I'm either a complete ignorant regarding cinema's art or have the technological savvy of a granny who stills calls a PS4 Nintendo but nevertheless i found this movie to be quite appealing unlike the rest of the world. Thou I might agree that the pace and the quality of the actors was a bit over reasonable, the central theme and the conversion to the on-line world got me completely hooked. The contrast of the Gray real characters into enthusiastic colorful on-line characters was to me the most interesting and subtle detail which mixed with topics as powerful as suicide and faceless manipulation made the watching of this movie quite remarkable
