I saw this movie last night. At first I did not like the format which mostly was looking at computer input. I told myself to keep an open mind. In no time at all I was wrapped up on this story of a father desperately trying to find his daughter. The story was riveting; it keeps you glued to the movie right to the end. Truly enjoyed it!

I am so glad to see so many positive reviews for this film, and I can see why, as it is an excellent film. How nice is it to see a Chinese/American cast lead a film, very welcome indeed. The story is excellent, I really liked how it unfolded, it's a thriller set very much in modern times, the prime obstacles being social media, and the people who live their lives through it. The action was excellent, and as a lover of twists in movies, I was well served here, plenty, lots of things I didn't see coming, really enjoyed.
Personally I didn't like the direction of the film, just as the same format spoiled The Shallows, I didn't like the way the story was told, too much advertising for the media giants, and it distracted from the film. The start was very slow, and the ending stretched the imagination beyond belief.
A few minor quibbles, but they didn't detract from what is an excellent movie, the best thriller I've watched in a cinema for many years, I also felt it gave an important message about Social media, and the dangers and restraints it places on people.
Nice to see the thriller genre can still surprise. 8/10
After reading the reviews that said it wasn't as gimmicky as it looks, I decided it's worth having a watch. They weren't wrong! It has a different style, and I do think it takes a bit of time to get used to what you're seeing - but this movie is definitely unique, and takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions. Worth every dollar.
