The greatest movie ever made..!
It was OK. I don't see why everyone loves it so much. It wasn't very smart or deep or well-directed.
Unfriended: Dark Web: Matias (Colin Woodell) is a bit of a nerd but he really loves his deaf girlfriend, Amaya (Stephanie Nogueras), he's working on an app to translate his spoken words into text but she would prefer if he learned sign language, things aren't going great. but it's games night and he joins his friends online to have some fun. He has a new laptop and and as the games progress he finds hidden files and a Norah C IV starts to contact him claiming the laptop is hers, yes: he found it. But the files turn out to be vids of women who have been kidnapped and the abductors could have murdered them. The gamers are drawn into a game of cat and mouse with the denizens of the Dark Web as Amaya comes under threat.Tension builds throughout the film as the action unfolds on Skype, messages, pop-up screens and side windows. Unwise decisions are made as the online and real world battle ensues. Adequate acting all round apart from a few OTT moments by gamer AJ (Conor Del Rio) result in a convincing enough film with some shocks and frights. A worthy directorial debut by Stephen Susco who also provides the screenplay. 7.5/10.
Have not seen the first 'Unfriended' in a while but remember not being hugely enamoured by it, though a re-watch is in order. Decided to see 'Unfriended: Dark Web' because the advertising was cool and creepy, the idea really intrigued (even if it is not the most innovative of ones) and it was also part of my quest to see as many 2018 films as possible.'Unfriended: Dark Web' has problems and is more an uneven film than a great one, but it has more than enough good points to make it an above average watch. Going by vague recollection of the first 'Unfriended', 'Unfriended: Dark Web' is darker and bleaker than that film, with a scarier view of humanity and technology and less of the supernatural element, and all the better for it. If anybody asks if the film works well as a standalone, the answer would be yes it does and that it does is more than a good thing. Am not usually a fan of the type of camera work used in 'Unfriended: Dark Web', which tends to be overused and abused. To my surprise though, it added to the unsettlement and was used cleverly and intelligently, an essential part of the storytelling even and reflective of how screen dominates lives. The lighting and setting are also hauntingly effective. The writing for the first two thirds provokes though and does a nice job exploring such a relevant topic and the dangers of it, perhaps not saying anything much new but effective in making its point without bashing it around the head of the viewer and doing it with realism.The direction fares credibly in keeping the intrigue and suspense going, the horrors depicted are done so well, very truthful (part of why it's so unsettling) and very easy to relate to. The story is deliberate but has a lot of suspense, chills and shocks, the beginning establishes the characters well which makes the slow pacing at the start justified and the character relationships well drawn.In terms of acting, 'Unfriended: Dark Web' is variable, there is a sense of fright and urgency but there is a tendency to overact, particularly when the character writing becomes less focused and instead more frustrating. That's one of the film's biggest faults, the characters making decisions far too quickly and most of the decision making is just so face-palmingly stupid and implausible.Faring worst is the last act, which quite badly undoes everything so promising and well done about the first two thirds. It becomes both rushed, in story structure, how characters act and not properly tying up everything, and dull, when the atmosphere does lose lustre. It also gets ridiculous to a mind-numbing degree and sense goes completely out of the window. A shame. Overall, does a lot well but it's also problematic, so a worthwhile and effective but frustrating and uneven effort. 6/10 Bethany Cox
I'm going to start off by saying that I actually personally enjoyed the film. More jumpscares, better deaths, and a more overall realistic approach that the first installment failed to produce. The whole movie leaves an eerie feeling as the whole theme is based on a real thing known as the dark web (although it's greatly exaggerated in the film) it still leaves a mark after you leave the theater. Overall the movie is great, although it's more of a "watch it at home" type movie rather than actually going to the theater.
Unfriended: Dark Web is the sequel to Unfriended from 2015. In this movie, a teenager obtains a laptop that was originally owned by someone who had apparently belonged to an evil online cult. The man eventually comes in contact with the teenager who now has the laptop and is willing to do whatever it takes to get it back from him.I didn't see the original Unfriended because it simply wasn't for me despite being based around social media and whatnot. I also wasn't looking forward to this, but I decided to watch this regardless and give it a chance. All I can say is that it's something I deeply regret.Let's start with the only genuinely good thing; the relationship between the main character and the love interest. The main character's girlfriend is deaf and the main character has to find a way to make their relationship work. As such, he creates an application that is supposed to help them with their communication. I found this pretty clever the more I thought about it, especially since there aren't a lot of movies that explore the complexities of a relationship like this.Despite liking the relationship, I feel like it's not necessarily deserved because I found the main character extremely stupid and unlikable. It didn't take me that long for me to dislike him either. Around a half hour into the movie, he admits that he picked up the computer from a lost-and-found bin where he works. He didn't just leave the computer sitting in there to buy a new one? Just how desperate was this guy?! He has a job, so he must be making money, so why couldn't he have saved up money to buy a new and fresh computer? The plot wouldn't have happened if he didn't just leave the computer in the lost-and-found.The other characters aren't necessarily much better. Aside from the villains, these are the types of characters to make hasty judgements without questioning anything. I know these are teenagers, but in some cases, they have no sense of judgement. Sometimes, they just don't listen, other times they are too manipulative, and in the worst case scenarios, they charge into situations blindly without giving a thought.While watching this movie, I was at least going to give the villain's motivation some credit for being plausible. The villain wants his computer back so he wouldn't look shady if one of them were to have called the cops. From what we see in the first act of the film, the actions that he and his cult members have pulled are worthy of punishment. If it wasn't for a small twist in the last 10 minutes, I would've just said "that's a believable motivation." But no, as the movie ends, the villain's true motives fail to make any sense.As for some of the smaller issues, I feel as though this movie fails to realize what it actually is. Despite it being marketed as a horror movie and a sequel to a horror movie, it's not very scary. At times, it seems to come off as a genre similar to a horror like a thriller or slasher movie with some of the deaths. Considering the fact that this is not supernatural unlike the first, it barely gives off the impression that it's a horror by offering nothing supernatural.If you're a hardcore fan of the first movie, then you may end up liking this. As for me however, I currently think it's the worst movie of the year with it failing in many different areas.2/10
