    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Keep your eyes on Garfield - he's shatteringly good, the soul of a film that might otherwise be without one. The Social Network is the movie of the year. But Fincher and Sorkin triumph by taking it further. Lacing their scathing wit with an aching sadness, they define the dark irony of the past decade. show more

    But make no mistake, whether the movie is fair or horribly unfair - I know nothing of the actual facts and can't make that determination - its portrait of Zuckerberg is a hatchet job of epic and perhaps lasting proportions. show more

    The film owes much of its success to the inspired pairing of Fincher and Sorkin. show more

    This account of Facebook's founder, and of the website's explosive growth, quickly lifts you to a state of exhilaration, and pretty much keeps you there for two hours. show more

    Most of all, it is the improbably entertaining story of how new media are altering the very nature of courtship and friendship. show more

    A work deeper than its nickname, "The Facebook Movie," hints at - coils around your brain. Weeks after seeing it, moments from it will haunt you. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The film comes down to a mesmerizing portrait of a man who in any other age would perhaps be deemed nuts or useless, but in the Internet age has this mental agility to transform an idea into an empire. show more

    Fincher and his screenwriter, TV writer-god Aaron Sorkin, have made a seemingly modest picture that achieves something close to greatness the old-fashioned, slow-burning way: By telling a story with faces, dialogue and body language of all types, from awkward to swaggering. show more

    Bob Mondello NPR

    Terrific entertainment - an unlikely thriller that makes business ethics, class distinctions and intellectual-property arguments sexy, that zips through two hours quicker than you can say "relationship status," and that'll likely fascinate pretty much anyone not named Zuckerberg. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    David Fincher's film has the rare quality of being not only as smart as its brilliant hero, but in the same way. It is cocksure, impatient, cold, exciting and instinctively perceptive. show more

    one of the few films that I believe will stand the test of time ... impeccable filmmaking and an underrated performance by Jesse Eisenberg

    Aaron Sorkin absolutly nailed it! It has been a long time since I have heard such fabulous dialogue in a modern/pop film... so this was such a breath of fresh air! Obviously, the storyline lends itself to to be the easiest movie on earth... but Fincher and Sorkin really stepped it up a level and mde it ithe fabulous movie that it is!

    This is a movie that left me wondering what all the hoopla was about, and why there was a need to make this picture in the first place. It is about the bunch of back-stabbing, greedy weasles who created Facebook. So what. I hope the shallowness exhibited by the characters (with the possible exception of Eduardo) is not a true depiction of what the younger generation will do to turn a buck. I ********** watching this movie, and I am sorry I did. The people depicted in this film were despicable. Why are we glorifying them ? Because they're billionaires ? What has happened to our priorities - and our decency ?

    Great movie! Very entertaining and interesting to find out how Face Book started. Amazing to see how such young people can become millionaires/ billionaires. Face Book was an amazing idea that has taken the world by storm.

    This movie was just "okay". Everyone in the movie, except for Eduardo, was such a jerk I really didn't care what happened to them. It isn't like Zuckerman was nice and money corrupted him, he was always a jerk. The "twin bothers" were like a joke....not even slightly believable. The only thing I was even curious about was the reconciliation of Mark and Eduardo, and the movie did not address how that happened.

    I was aprehensive about buying this movie since I'm not into any sort of "social networking". However, this was a great movie! I took me a few minutes to tune my ears to the speed in which the characters spoke, but, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. The characters are well developed and the acting was superb.!
