Not what I was expecting. At all. I saw the first Unfriended and absolutely hated it. My feet were dragging going into the theater, but coming out I had a happy pep to my step.
You are looking at a monitor during the entire movie. Windows and chat boxes fill the screen at all times. This was a little hard to follow, but after a few minutes you get into the groove of it.
Things happen fast and you are concentrating on numerous things at all times. The story is good but I feel that there wasn’t enough character development to really care what happens to them. The plot twists and turns, and when you think things are going to come together for the group, something else derails it.
This movie is definitely best enjoyed by the younger generation that is “up” on all of the social media apps out there. It was fun and it didn’t get tedious since it was so short. If you’re into chatting, texting, and video chatting you should check it out. If texting annoys you, you’re probably going to want to skip this one. It would drive you insane.
About the Peetimes:
Let me preface these Peetimes with a word of warning. This movie has so many things going on, twists and turns at every corner, that finding a 3 or 4 minute slot that would be easy enough to sum up was impossible.
What I have entered is, in my opinion, the best times — even though I highly recommend just staying in your seat for the whole movie.
