Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Social Network is pretty good for a film about Facebook A movie about the inception of a social network and how the idea came to be for the phenomena that is now facebook. The movie is an interpretation of the events that lead up to the meeting of the founder and co-founders of facebook and the events that lead up to their falling out and lawsuit between the friends. It was directed by David Fincher who also directed Fight Club and Seven. The sound track was done by Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) and Atticus Ross. It stars Jesse Eisenberg who did a great job as Mark Zuckerberg. This is a made for movie story of how the facebook came to be, the story is vague as happens with this kind of story. The movie is more of a drama with embellishment on events that took place; it was like watching what happened in real life but in fast-forward. They meet, start a web site, a party or two occurs, they make it to California, meet up with the founder of napster, make it big with facebook. All while the story is being told the founder of facebook is at a hearing over the law suit between the two co-founders, so this is an interpretation of how events occurred form Marks prospective. Mark Zuckerberg has criticized the focus on the trials, stating they weren't that big of a part of facebook's history. All and all this is a well put together movie with moments of suspense and humor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Classic Film of how Facebook was created My first reaction when I heard that Sony pictures was going to make a movie based on the online fascination of the website “Facebook”, I was very sceptical of how the movie would turn out. At first glance you would most likely overlook this movie at the movie theatres to see the next greatest action or comedy film. The movie started out well in theatre which was not expected of a movie based on a website, but with great raves from credited movie reviewers it grew in popularity. With the movie hosting some big names in the music and film including Justin Timberlake (Playing the inventor of Napster), Jesse Eisenberg (Playing the inventor of Facebook) this movie became a hit of 2010. With nominations for numerous awards including best picture, and best director it truly was arguably the best film of 2010. This movie follows the creator of Facebook and the many feats he had to accomplish to get where the website is today. The film portrays a story of how friendship and greed do not mix. I recently saw the film and it kept me entertained throughout the film, I never knew how much work the website the world uses everyday has become. I definitely recommend this film to anyone who is interested in how Facebook was started.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Believe the Awards, this movie is very, very, good This is the best reviewed movie of 2010, and at the time I am writing this review, it is the front runner for several Oscars, included Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and several other awards. I understand, awards are usually a popularity contest now a days, but this movie, is deserving of every one they get. This is a movie, where every single part of it is working at a high level. The direction is perfect, the score fits the atmosphere and tone to a tee, the acting for the most part is right on the mark, and the screenplay is smart and witty. Davod Fincher was my favourite director before watching this movie, and after watching it just reaffirms my opinion of him. I found the music very good, the timing is very good to go along with what is happening with the characters. The acting in this movie is outstanding. Andrew Garfield give a very good performance, one of my favourite of the year. He dives into the role, and he is that character. Armie Hammer is very good as the twins, he handled acting beside himself very well, if you get what I mean. Rooney Mara, Brenda Song and Justin Timberlake are also very good in smaller roles. To me, the weak link was Jesse Eisenberg. I feel he just didn't bring anything to the role. He wasen't bad by any means, it just he was the role, there was nothing extra. The screenplay is great. The dialogue is great between characters, and there are funny bits put in to light the mood when the moment calls. A very good movie, a future classic.
