This part 2 was even more dump than the part 1. However, there are some really huge scale action scenes...although, not creative at all.
First scene, the girl broke up with Zuckerberg. I thought, hmm, not bad at all, not fantastic though. Mean, with a little pushing too hard. Second scene, a sequence following Zuckerberg in a walk through Harvard's campus. My mind blown away immediately! Wow! The cinematography, especially the lighting, the mise en scÃ¨ne. It was so like me walking through the campus in real! An amazing experience.
Well, the movie was very well done. The script was tight throughout. Entertaining characters' design. Jesse Eisenberg shines definitely.
Ivy Ho is more famous as a writer. Among them, July Rhapsody (directed by Ann Hui) is my favorite. She is director and writer in Crossing Hennessy. The film is unambitious, no style, treated in old fashion way, zero superstar effect, dry storyline, overall an unsexy film. What's in it? Heartful, is in it. If you think that's important, or perhaps, the most important thing for a film, then you may watch this one.
This can be a good film choice for new filmmakers, for the reason that we see a passionate director directed a film that doesn't work at all.
The film is surprisingly realistic on both the style and the story, unlike Stone's most films that were being too playful sometimes. The story has a nice blend of opportunism vs. its opposite, perhaps cooperation. However, both share a same concept: to fulfill a dream. I like the film for its "money is not everything, although it's essential". In fact, this could be Stone's first film I actually don't feel defensive of. Douglas' recent news on health issue worries me. All actors performed well here, just like every Stone's movie.
