Would have rated it lower, but - OK, 2 stars for touching on the dark side of "social" media. It's too bad that our heroine's abrupt shifts in viewpoint leave the plot disjointed. The characters and the acting are one-dimensional, not credible. And the stupid world-saving ending ignores the long-term implications of this serious subject.

This film was unfortunately a disappointment---too many undeveloped potential plot twists and an unsatisfying ending. For me, it was also a drag to watch Tom Hanks as an the evil character.

Dull and boring. This movie did show us how big brother can become intrusive and at times dangerous. We would have no privacy at all. There's enough tech out there now looking into our lives.

VERY disappointing....ALL the comments regarding "boring", "cancel your hold" are true. You've been warned!

It could have been so amazing;, the premise, the relevance, big stars and you'd think loads of talent taking care of this story. Sadly The Circle fell far from where it could have landed. The director gave up it seems and what is left is disjointed and unsatisfying. Do yourself a favour and cancel your hold and get The Hollars instead.

I'm amazed at the long line of people waiting to view this movie - the book must have been good. If so, this movie will sorely disappoint - there just really isn't much to it. It's really weak. You should save yourself a couple of hours and find something else to do.

Fairly disappointing indeed. I love Tom Hanks but he wasn't much on screen. Emma's acting not so great. Terrible screenplay. Just didn't come together for me. As others have said, it's boring.

Like soooooo many have said before me, it not worth it

garbage. For reasons stated in several other comments.

Not so much badly produced, written, or acted, but in the end, it just seemed a pointless exercise. Perhaps younger people, who are more deeply involved in their social media presence, would be more engaged with the film, and it's message of the dangers of Big Brother. I found it all pretty dull and redundant.
