As an avid user of Facebook, I felt obligated to see this so called "movie of the year". Well, to me, this is the movie of the year (so far of course). Jesse Eisenberg has really defined himself as an actor with films like Zombieland and Holy Rollers but this is his biggest achievement. He is so good at being a total a**hole while still being able to obtain some sympathy from the audience. He is quick witted, egotistical, and back stabbing, which are the usual traits of a genius. Eisenberg is a quickly rising star that has a huge amount of potential.
Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake are not to be forgotten though. They both did amazing jobs. Garfield was extremely likable and smart while Timberlake was charismatic but a jerk.
The writing was phenomenal. It was very smart, interesting, and helps the movie and story in so many ways.
Overall, this is a fantastic movie with amazing acting and writing while being very interesting and intense.
