The Circle [Movie Review]

A young tech worker takes a job at a powerful Internet corporation, quickly rises up the company’s ranks, and soon finds herself in a perilous situation concerning privacy, surveillance, and freedom. She comes to learn that her decisions and actions will determine the future of humanity.

The Circle is an interesting story to be told. Herewith a great cast Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, Karen Gillan, and John Boyega. But with a poorly used talent, we see a story with potential being based on an outstanding book.

The Circle was a very slow-paced film you don’t get to a good plot point until the middle of the act. Not only that John Boyega’s character was the less seen in the film in the moments he appears are moments that you want to see more of him.

The story of how social media can affect one another plus knowing that privacy doesn’t exist on the internet. Where The Circle is the antagonist. We don’t see that much development in the film just a little with Emma Watson’s character and that was not much.

The rest of the cast was amazing including Emma Watson. Their performance was outstanding I don’t blame them for the pacing of this film. Would have wanted to see more Boyega but that didn’t happen.

The Circle needed more development in their problem and more character development. I think that is what was missing in this film. I still enjoyed the film but the first thirty minutes are too slow for this film. I would have had a little more fast pace and more emphasis on the situation.
