The Social Network - Movie Review

I saw 'The Social Network' recently. I liked it. I give it a 6 out of 10. It would be interesting for the people from the IT industry who have been following the growth of Facebook. This movie is the story of Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook (Did you know it was known as 'TheFacebook' when it was launched?). Aaron Sorkin adapted his screenplay from Ben Mezrich's 2009 nonfiction book The Accidental Billionaires

 Jesse Eisenberg does justice to his role as Mark. I enjoyed every second of this movie. It is fast paced and pretty much takes you through the history of creation of Facebook and life of Mark Zuckerberg - the youngest billionaire. What is interesting is it also leaves you with a lot of questions. To those of you who think it might be a movie about Mark as a 'hero' - let me just tell you this - it is not. The movie takes you through his early Harvard days, the ups and downs in his personal life and ofcourse all those law suits. Andrew Garfield as Eduardo is awesome. And how can I forget Justin Timberlake!! He looks good as always! Except I wasn't really impressed with his acting skills. Long way to go yet Justin :-) The last scene of the movie is nice. Many people I know who have seen this movie found it strange or abrupt end, but I loved it. If you have seen it then let us discuss why.

I found it to be an interesting and fun movie. Do check it out!


  1. Interesting post. Mark has had a curious professional life and it would be interesting to watch the movie.
    One thing though, if you liked it that much, why is it just 6 on 10? :)

  2. It is 6 as it didn't touch my heart. Movies that touch my heart get a higher score. Well made movies like this one get scores around 5 to 6. :-)
