Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The film ominously conveys a world of too much information but too little communication, where people have become slaves to glowing hand-held devices that were designed to make life easier but have made it busier and more complicated. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Apr 11, 2013

Fresh: Worst-case scenarios for our forays into chat rooms and social network sites are laid bare, as are the illegal and immoral contours of the digital landscape in this well-acted dramatic thriller. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Apr 11, 2013

Fresh: What works is the uncomfortable intimacy of peering over the shoulders of, say, Patton when she watches YouTube videos of her dead son, and the shudder of recognition that our hard drives are our external consciences. – Amy Nicholson, Los Angeles Times, Apr 12, 2013

Rotten: Journalists lie, spouses stray and thieves steal, but "Disconnect" keeps trying, unsuccessfully, to pin the blame on technology rather than its users. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Apr 18, 2013

An amazing movie that depicts the reality of our Social Networked lifestyle

This movie is amazing I am surprised it did not get more of a chance in theaters. Disconnect depicts the reality and threats of our new modern social networking lifestyle where some of us don’t know who we are talking to all we have sometimes is a user name.

Good Movie

This was a good movie with characters that the audience will be able to relate to. Definitely worth a look

Current state of our society

Most people in our country greedily consume "steroid" technology - when the new and modern advancements are simply beyond what we actually need - and this movie just points it out. I don't think it's necessarily people who consume phones like water in the desert, but it's worth debating
