Good. This is a scary look at how the news is made these days. Jake Gyllenhaal plays an absolute creep free lance video guy selling his footage to the news, but what is even more creepy is how the people at the news station react when they see his footage.
The first half of the movie was very fresh and kept me locked in , but by the middle of the film I had the last hour figured out. At that point it became more exciting as well as more formulaic. The ending is a little too Hollywood for me, I was expecting something a little different and better based on the first half of the movie, but it was still better that a bunch of the crap the studios are cranking out on a daily basis. The best way to go into this movie is just sit back and go with it and try to ignore the huge plot holes in the story and you’ll enjoy it. This was easily one of the better movie I saw this year, so give it a shot and drop me a line and tell me what you think.
