NYC Movie Guru

Lackluster, pedestrian, emotionally hollow and underwhelming despite exquisite cinematography and a timely, initially intriguing premise.

What you're left with is a host of issues far more stimulating than the movie raising them is.

House Next Door

I've read a lot about The Social Network at this point, mostly raves about how it supposedly captures The Way We Live Now, but no one has really zeroed in on how deliberately alienating it is.

An anti-charismatic Charles Foster Kane with social issues, class status anger, and homoerotic panic.

Cavalier when not in your face cocky, this Hollywood notion of a dumbed down, sexed up Harvard is less brainiac boot camp than Ivy League Club Med where nobody does homework. A hyper-capitalist homage to Facebook, and an infomercial in biopic clothing.

Atlantic City Weekly

Manipulation is the heart of this film, both in the story being told, and by the filmmakers who molded the true story to fit their agenda.

What happens when a director and writer hate their subject? A well made, but one dimensional hit piece.

New York Press

Like one of those fake-smart, middlebrow TV shows, the speciousness of The Social Network is disguised by topicality. It's really a movie excusing Hollywood ruthlessness.

The Patriot Ledger

It captures the essence of selfishness and treachery, all under the guise of creating a system geared toward making it easier for college kids to get laid. And sure enough, in the end, just about everybody gets screwed.

Fincher's keen eye for direction and Sorkin's sharp script make this worth seeing for fans and non-fans of [Facebook] alike.

Perhaps we've become a world of Mark Zuckerbergs and it's clear that these filmmakers don't like it one bit.

What Culture

That the project is not only a success but one of 2010′s best films is a testament to Fincher's talent as a director and his seemingly perennial ability to surround himself with incredibly astute, like-minded collaborators.

The Social Network is so engrossing you don't even notice how heavy handed the films central dramatic irony could be -- that the greatest tool for communication in the modern age was created by someone who has no idea how to relate to other people.

This picture helps convey the significance of the social media revolution; the one that simultaneously brings us together and tears us apart. The Social Network is scarily good. It gets us.
