An average movie

Even though this movie has a rather lame reputation, since it was dealing with an interesting story, I was still eager to check it out. Well, eventually, it turned out to be indeed a fascinating story but, unfortunately, they didn't manage to turn into a great movie. I mean, it shows that David Fincher is a great director to have managed to make such a fascinating movie about the creation of Facebook but I'm afraid Bill Condon is only a decent director and he really struggled with this material. Indeed, it seemed rather tricky to translate the digital world of hackers to the silver screen and the end-result was never really convincing or intriguing enough. In fact, it was downright annoying during some scenes. Another issue was that they never seemed to be able to choose how to represent the two main characters. Indeed, sometimes, they made them quite harismatic and then suddenly really nerdy. Even more problematic were the secondary characters who were so poorly developed that I couldn't keep track on who they actually were. The biggest victims were such fine actresses like Carice van Houten (I still don't know who she was actually playing) and the lovely Alicia Vikander who were completely wasted here. So, the damned thing felt like a huge missed opportunity but, since it was such a terrific story, I still think it is worth a look.
