I spent a lot of my childhood writing little videogames for the fun of it and have always kind-of wondered what would happen if I took my career down that path, so this was an especially interesting movie to me. To see how much stress and sacrifice these people go through for something that's supposed to be fun. Wow.
Overall was a great dystopian sci-fi. The concept is solid, the story is good, and the cinematography is great. The acting sucked but I can forgive that, it's still a story well worth watching for the thought provocation alone.
I had a meeting in a conference room named "NZT" yesterday, so I decided to google that acronym and found this movie. Turns out it was really good! You have to suspend reason at some points, but that's true of any sci-fi based in current times...
This movie tries really hard to be funny, and fails miserably. It's boring, and gets it's cheap laughs by being uncleverly crass. All it really did for me was make me miss "Eastbound and Down". Barely watchable, don't waste your time. I wish I didn't.
This movie was very informative, but not at all entertaining, despite the author's attempt at jarring Michael-Moore-like hijinks. The documenter got away with a lot but just wasn't a good showman.
I give it a good 2-star rating for the pure dissemination of information about unabashed corporate greed and military corruption brought about by the phone manufacturing industrry. Definitely worth watching.
