Fincher is at pains to show that everyone involved in the legal talks believed they were in the right. That he does so successfully is what makes the action so riveting.
January 4, 2018
It is director David Fincher's equivalent of Orson Welles' Citizen Kane: the story of a capitalist who is awe-inspiring in some ways, but tragic in others; enviably clever and driven, but also repellently ruthless and treacherous.

An immaculate realization of clichés, a multi-billion-dollar lawsuit transmuted into a low-stakes male weepie, a bunch of college-movie stereotypes at play in a world of cruelly precise images...

The performances of Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg and Justin Timberlake as the Napster shyster Sean Parker are award-worthy. Andrew Garfield as Ernest Saverin, also gives an impressive performance.

A zesty advertisement for the further meaningless Facebookization of our daily routines, and the further squandering of our free time.
October 7, 2015
The film keeps teasing at bigger themes when it's really drivel.

What a terrific movie!
April 28, 2015
A giddy, two-hour rush of hot-blooded vertiginous dialogue and cucumber-cool cinematic curlicues.
December 2, 2013
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 keeps the movie's tech-y elements on the periphery, focusing instead on the time-honored dramatic elements of isolation, determination, avarice and betrayal.
