Megan Is Missing Reviews
Director: Michael Goi
Summary: Employing a mix of storytelling techniques (including webcam footage, video chats and dramatized news reports), this chillingly realistic thriller charts the disappearance of two teens who vanish three weeks apart under mysterious circumstances.
My Thoughts: "This isn't your normal type of scary film. It's a scary film on a realistic level. It's disturbing, intense, and hard to watch at times. But the message is clear and scary, especially for those who have kids. I don't have any kids of my own, but I do have custody of my niece and she will be thirteen next month and these girls are the same age or a year older. So seeing this film makes me want to keep her off the computer all together. I know there are more scary predators out there and they are not just on the computer. But this film shows you just how vulnerable young girls/boys can be to people who tell them what they want to hear and who feed on their insecurities. The Internet is a big world with many people pretending to be who they are not. So this is a great film to maybe watch with your older kids, or at least discuss with them to make them aware of how scary the net can be. I will admit that some scenes are a bit on the cheesy side, but the message rings louder. The last twenty minutes is the hardest part of the film to sit through. If you rent this film make sure to listen to the "statement" in the special features. The mans story is sad but also inspiring considering the awareness he has brought to the issue."
Meagan is Missing is a horrible movie, there I said it and it's true this movie is not that good as some people are putting it out to be. The reason why people are defending this movie is because it's mostly the fact that the movie advertise it's self as a "real shocking found footage film", even when these scenes where I can hear the director in the background saying "Cut" at the beginning of each scene. These another scene where there go to this party and these really loud music going off in the background and you know in these found footage films where music is playing in the background and when the camera will cut away the music will also cut away, I'm kidding you here every time the camera cuts away the music wouldn't audio drop, how on earth can you f**k that up. Oh one last thing I want to bring up at the party scene where everybody at the party is suppose to be smoking weed and everybody's having a good time even when they haven't lit it or inhaling it.
I'm getting pretty sick and tried of people defending this movie giving it such high ratings that doesn't even deserve it. I know I'm coming off really tough on this movie but that's called being honest and it looks like I have to be the one naming off the flaws that seemed to be overlooked by many. Don't get stress or angry with me for a movie that wasn't even trying to be something great in the first place.
The acting was horrible, the director had no sense on reality when it comes to teenagers and what they do or say.
Now the last couple of minutes of the film that's suppose to be "real footage" and I'm not going to believe that because most of it feels set up or a better to sum it up fake. At one point in this "real footage" a girl get's raped and I don't know about you but I swear to god she was smiling and looks like she's kind of laughing during it, I'm not pulling your leg here it's actually in the damn movie and it looks fake as shit. I know people are going to bring up the footage file thing that the two girls recorded themselves on Skype but the last time I checked Skype doesn't have a native or built in feature to record calls. You need to install a separate software or an add-on in order to save your audio or video conversations. And if they did recorded all that then they computer files most have no more room for storage.
Overall if you like this movie that's fine good for you, but for me this movie was freaking terrible and unrealistic.
