The Circle – Trailer vs. Movie #25 (-7.6)

As is typical with all my posts, please be aware there are possible spoilers.

The trailer that I watched for this movie is below:

The Circle is not entirely what you would expect it to be from the trailer.  I expected it to be a more thrill / suspense movie, but instead its more of a movie that asks questions about society drama.

Unfortunately the questions that are asked are never really answered.  If you expect to see a lot of Tom Hanks and John Boyega you will be disappointed.  This movie does make me wonder though how Tom Hanks would be as a real villain.  Hes not that here, but there are flashes of it.

Karen Gillan does a great job with what little she is given in the movie, but her story really doesn’t go anywhere or make sense by the final act.

Emma Watson talks about being afraid of unfulfilled potential in the trailer and this is what The Circle is.  Big name cast with a lack luster story with no where to go.

(10/10 is a perfect rating)
