This one took me by surprise. It utilizes the found footage genre in an innovative way that makes it feel fresh and builds up genuine suspense without any cliches. John Cho is masterful too, it's a shame his performance isn't talked about enough here.

How anyone could find this movie boring is beyond me! Lots of twists and turns, and good acting. The backstory of how the movie was made only adds to the viewer's enjoyment. If you are a computer geek, you might even get more out of it! It is so unlike anything I have ever seen and I applaud the creative team that took a big risk that really worked.

So what there wasn't any car chases, explosions, or gruesome scenes? Cost effective film doesn't felt cheesy cheap B-movie and felt so in there. Pace was just right with a somewhat over his head dad going into rabbit hole of social media.
So it wasn't Oscar material. However, it wasn't Razzie material.

A good movie and interesting. Plus it makes you wonder how much do you know about your kids.

A very tense, creepy, claustrophobic thriller.

I like John Cho, but this was movie was pretty boring, esp. considering that it was billed as a thriller. A man's teenage daughter goes missing and he scrambles to figure out whether she ran away or was abducted. The gimmick? All of the film takes place on screens-computer, phone, television. It's probably meant to be, like, of the moment, but it ended up quickly becoming annoying and tedious.

COMPLETELY BORING. Done all on a computer showing computer pics of mostly the father, him talking on the computer or on the phone.. Have to read what is typed all through the whole movie. WTH.

Masterful. Edge of your seat, and just when you think you have a handle on it, BAM, no you don’t!! Excellent performances from John Cho and Michelle La.
A definite Must Watch if you love mysteries!!

Crime solving via social media. A well done thriller in our electronic times.
