What a terrific movie!

A giddy, two-hour rush of hot-blooded vertiginous dialogue and cucumber-cool cinematic curlicues.

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.

The Social Network may not turn out to be the definitive movie made about the plugged-in generation, but it's a pretty good start.

Director David Fincher seems drawn to these stories of misguided rebels who become monsters in their attempts to reorder the world.

Even if you've never touched a computer in your life, you'll find plenty to be fascinated by in this movie, as it shows that, whilst technology may be moving fast, the human capacity for hubris will always remain the same.

... A classic American story of capitalism and greed, friendship and betrayal, fueled by envy and lost innocence ...

At last, a movie you can actually discuss afterward. And not just on Facebook or Twitter. No, you'll want to chew it over in person, with friends, for hours.

It's hard work making a character you don't like into a character you don't like, but can still respect.

Perhaps we've become a world of Mark Zuckerbergs and it's clear that these filmmakers don't like it one bit.
Dave White

It's part Citizen Kane, part Goodfellas, part Revenge of the Nerds and the most entertaining film you never knew you would want to see.

The Social Network is so engrossing you don't even notice how heavy handed the films central dramatic irony could be -- that the greatest tool for communication in the modern age was created by someone who has no idea how to relate to other people.

You wouldn't think that [Fincher & Sorkin's] talents would gel, yet their collaboration on The Social Network is brilliant ... a gripping tale of ambition and envy, betrayal and resentment.
Shaun Munro

That the project is not only a success but one of 2010′s best films is a testament to Fincher's talent as a director and his seemingly perennial ability to surround himself with incredibly astute, like-minded collaborators.
