Product Description

Amazon.ca

They all laughed at college nerd Mark Zuckerberg, whose idea for a social-networking site made him a billionaire. And they all laughed at the idea of a Facebook movie--except writer Aaron Sorkin and director David Fincher, merely two of the more extravagantly talented filmmakers around. Sorkin and Fincher's breathless picture, The Social Network, is a fast and witty creation myth about how Facebook grew from Zuckerberg's insecure geek-at-Harvard days into a phenomenon with 500 million users. Sorkin frames the movie around two lawsuits aimed at the lofty but brilliant Zuckerberg (deftly played by Adventureland's Jesse Eisenberg): a claim that he stole the idea from Ivy League classmates, and a suit by his original, now slighted, business partner (Andrew Garfield). The movie follows a familiar rise-and-fall pattern, with temptation in the form of a sunny California Beelzebub (an expert Justin Timberlake as former Napster founder Sean Parker) and an increasingly tangled legal mess. Emphasizing the legal morass gives Sorkin and Fincher a chance to explore how unsocial this social-networking business can be, although the irony seems a little facile. More damagingly, the film steers away from the prickly figure of Zuckerberg in the latter stages--and yet Zuckerberg presents the most intriguing personality in the movie, even if the movie takes pains to make us understand his shortcomings. Fincher's command of pacing and his eye for the clean spaces of Aughts-era America are bracing, and he can't resist the technical trickery involved in turning actor Armie Hammer into privileged Harvard twins (Hammer is letter-perfect). Even with its flaws, The Social Network is a galloping piece of entertainment, a smart ride with smart people… who sometimes do dumb things. --Robert Horton

3.0 out of 5 stars over rated April 24 2011
By Dave W
Format:DVD
Had great expectations for this film, but was underwhelmed. It just seemed to drag and I'd call it overall flat. Don't understand all the Oscar hype. Watching the additional features it's apparent that the screenwriter has a very good opinion of himself. Just didn't care about the characters. I really like the directors other films, however I found that my attention wandered on this flick.

4.0 out of 5 stars highly recommended May 18 2011
By falcon
Format:Blu-ray
this movie about the creation of the phenomenon Facebook and the aftermath is one well crafted and compelling movie.David Fincher directed it and Aaron Sorkin wrote the screenplay.s.it's not hard to tell Sorkin had a hand din it.the dialogue just pops.the acting is superb all around.the main characters are well drawn.Jesse Eisenberg plays Zuckerberg,and it's hard not to feel some degree of empathy for the character,though i wouldn't exactly call him sympathetic.Andrew Garfield plays Eduardo Saverin,a co-founder of Facebook.but it's Justin Timberlake who i found really impressive as Sean Parker,founder of Napster.he plays a totally unlikable character and pulls it off perfectly.i would highly recommend this film.for me,The Social Network is a 4/5

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing April 21 2011
Format:DVD
Unusual to find an Oscar nominee in trouble with us, but this had to be the most boring movie that we have seen in a long time. Probably OK if you are heavy into the high tech world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable! Feb. 19 2011
Format:DVD
One of those rare movies that you can actually watch multiple times and enjoy it more each time. The pace is so fast it really needs watching twice to grasp all that's going on. Well cast, well written, superbly directed - even Justin Timberlake is great to watch in this movie. And holding it all together is the genius music of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross - certainly deserving of an Oscar.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Great At All March 14 2013
Format:Blu-ray
A terribly boring film that has people that are shallow, vulgar and without a shred of morality or ethics. The writing is not great and the performances are pedestrian. Perhaps that they should have added a footnote how Facebook also is continually trying to sell people's personal information to third parties, allow free large corporate advertising on people's account (with the consent of the account holder, but without any monetary transfers for having this advertising) and how the design of the web page is so poor that it looks like an old Windows program. Perhaps they should add an alternative title of: "Perverts and Stalkers-Here's Free Information For You". This movie leaves me with the question: "Has Harvard lowered it's standards to let people like these to attend their institution?"

1.0 out of 5 stars Ordinary March 21 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I''ve seen this type of film before. Smart, arrogant young man creates something new that he allegedly stole from someone else. Yeah, yeah seen it done before. There wasn't one major character in the film I liked. I thought they were all greedy, backstabbing, hateful people, and if that's what it takes to make a lot of dough then I'd rather not.

Over all the film was a boring study on dislikable people. I'm so glad it didn't win the Oscar. it definitely didn't deserve it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie Feb. 4 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I had to add another 5 star review because someone only gave it 3 stars because they found it for 6 cents less at Wal-Mart...

It's a great movie and whether or not it is 100% accurate to the true story of how Facebook was created it was very entertaining.

OK film. Facebook sucks so Obviously I'm biased. Nothing much happens. Boring and dry. Wouldn't watch this one again. Don't buy if you don't like Facebook

Product arrived in perfect condition. This film is truly remarkable. Great script, great performances by everyone. It may very well be Fincher at his finest.
