The Social Network is a hit

27 Feb


Facebook is a cultural phenomenon that has distracted much of the world into a “social networking” frenzy. A movie about a couple of Harvard guys creating a website does not sound like an engaging premise, but when millions of dollars are at stake and a friendship is put to the test, then Hollywood can “build” this story into an outstanding film by putting David Fincher in the director’s seat with a script from Aaron Sorkin.

It is hard to believe that Facebook has only been around ten years, but Mark Zuckerberg’s (Jesse Eisenberg) decision partake in cyber revenge turns into an unstoppable business venture where he becomes a shrewd businessman that eliminates his Harvard connections from the financial equation. Of course, this leads to a series of lawsuits that become the film’s stabilizing backbone for these intriguing characters.

Of course, this film exaggerates here and there but if you give this modern classic a chance I guarantee you’ll “like” it.

    My problem with this movie was that everything you saw, was most likely not what happened. However, I was able to drop my disbelief for awhile and just enjoy what I see, and that’s exactly what happened. Nice review.
