Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Lampooning the simple-mindedness of utopian web cliches was arguably part of Mr. Eggers's point, but much of that point is often muddled in the book. And it's simply incoherent in the movie.
Rotten: It's so cartoony and ham-fisted it sabotages its own argument.
Rotten: The Circle feels dull, dated and ripped from yesterday's headlines. It flatlines while you're watching it.
Rotten: The Circle has a polished, handsome surface, but it also looks as if it were designed by committee, like a fussed-over corporate logo. That would be OK, probably-if the movie at least knew what it was selling.
Too close to reality
This movie gave us an insight at the dangers of social media and everyday devices that any day could be used against us.
I think it's a great movie and a great cast.
This is a great movie with a great message about social media.
Great concept, it really shows us how technology is taking over,however; the characters have little to no effect on the plot, Ty was underwhelming, and no epilogue was given. Something dramatic happened, and the movie just ended maybe 15 minutes after. The entire movie was creepy and eerie and led up to this dramatic scene and just left the audience hanging. With no idea how it all turned out. Not even Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, and the guy from The Force Awakens could make this movie good.
