This has to be one of the sharpest scripts in recent cinema history, and perhaps cinema itself. The characters are brought to life so vividly, and the dialogue is the work of master artist. I haven't seen all of Aaron Sorkin's work, but this may well be his magnum opus. The dialogue, yes, is very tech savvy, however it doesn't make it so complicated. I'm only intermediate when it comes to computers, however I knew exactly what was going on and quite frankly, enjoyed all of the dialogue. I was never bored by it, Fincher's direction is amazing, he really pulls you into the story and brings the magnificent script to life. It further confirms his status as a master film-maker, and is a superb follow-up to his excellent Benjamin Button. It's just extremely well-done, it's some of the best film-making you'll see all year, from script to direction to sets and even performances. Everyone in here is spot-on perfect as their characters. Justin Timberlake is surprisingly great in his role, won't give away for those who may not know, and Jesse Eisenberg continues to establish an impressive resume. A great film that honestly I would love to see again. Highly recommended!! 100%, 10/10 and Bravo to Mr. Fincher for bringing such a compelling story to the screen, and telling it so well without being too "Hollywood"
