Uninvolving from start to finish, the would-be thriller Anonymous traffics in a certain bland slickness, placing it squarely in the international crime subset of generic action features.
Everything feels requisite, from the mother weeping over her lost job and unpaid bills to the tiny slip that eventually proves deadly. But requisite is a long way from real.
"Anonymous" likely intends to be thought-provoking, but it only invited questions about the illogical choices of both the characters and the filmmakers.
An uninspired thriller offering even the minimally computer-literate viewer few insights into the world of hacktivism.
Anonymous mocks the idealism of anarchy by way of a ridiculously romantic depiction of online crime; it feels like a rom-com version of the far more weighted series Mr. Robot.
Anonymous is riddled with shortcomings, but none is greater than its inability to provide a single reason to care about the plight of its protagonist.
The film fails at being realistic, entertaining, and sympathetic but at least you get some really cool shots of Hong Kong right? By the time we get to the ending, a confusing and poorly explained double cross is left on a cliffhanger and we learn fuck all about what actually happened in the last 40 minutes of the film. Even if you were waiting for an oil change to your car and needed 90 minutes to kill, I wouldn't recommend this to you. This movie is a complete waste of time even for a Redbox rental. Final Verdict, leave the Mr. Robot plot to the USA Network.
