In 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer genius Mark Zuckerberg begins work on a new concept that eventually turns into the global social network known as Facebook. Six years later, he is one of the youngest billionaires ever, but Zuckerberg finds that his unprecedented success leads to both personal and legal complications when he ends up on the receiving end of two lawsuits, one involving his former friend.

Watching The Social Network, after the film came out 8 years ago and after Facebook launched 15 years ago, helped me to better review the social media storm in our lives. How it all began was much more 'humane' than it looks today. Film portrays the college life, 'Harvard' label critic and entrepreneurism process well. I praise Jesse Eisenberg's acting as he was able to convince me how smart Zuckerberg can be in real life.


One of the greatest movies of all time. Where people go wrong is in thinking this is an entirely accurate documentary about Facebook, which it's not.


Social net work is about Facebook, but not the company, it's mainly about these two character Mark and Eduardo, the friend ship and conflict are great, and you really buy Jesse Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg, at least in this movie. I have no idea what kind of person is Mark Zuckerberg, but in this movie Jesse is Zuckerberg. i really don't think there is much flaw in these movie, i mean it is based on true events. The story is amazing, I love the way they tell the story through "flash backs" if you even can call them flash backs. It is very interesting that they over shadow the story with the reading of the law sue. Most of the time you will get bored or annoyed but the exposition, and this movie is basically full of that, it haves to be, but the movie it's not boring. My greatest concern before i watch these movie that is this movie going to be boring as hell, you expect this movie to be full of dialog, and scenes that just two characters with close up, cut to another cut, but it is not. I think they change the characteristics of Mark Zuckerberg from real life, not completely different, but different enough to makes this character interesting, because they have a very interesting story in hand, all they need is interesting characters. When they have dialog, the way they to keep us audiences interesting is to constantly change locations and scenario. Every time they give out important plot information, the scene is different, the location, the relation between the characters, the situation, sound in the back ground, it keeps the scene fresh enough for the viewers invested. But yet again, this movie is all about exposition, and there is really not much they can do about it, even it's entertaining, and the scenes are fleshed out, it still gets a bit bored from time to time, it's not at a point that is bad, it's just a little flaw of the movie that the creators really can't do about it, i really think they make the best out of it, every second of them hacking is extremely entertaining, from cuts to cuts, sound design, and the lighting, it is just beautiful. I said it before, this movie is all about the character, and they really did fleshed out these two characters. Everything that happened, you buy it, you believe it, not because it is real, it's because of you believe these characters would do such action. And i have to say, the performance is amazing, there is just one thing i like to point out, mainly because of the actor Jesse Eisenberg, he always do this, most of the characters he play, they all tend to talk really fast, it's not out of the character, but after seeing some movies, he talks fast all the time, I don't know why, but it's not wrong, at least in this movie. The clash of these two character seems so natural, the build up of the conflict and distance starts early all the way to the climax of the movie, and the impact was extremely powerful. And there are a lot of smart film making and writing. In conclusion, this movie is beautifully shot, and characters are great, the story is great, you can actually feel something after seeing this movie, unlike most films today, so I recommend people watch this movie.
