“The Circle” is a movie that doesn’t live up to its potential. The film has ideas about the current state of social media but it doesn’t know what to do with them. What is the tone of the film? Is this a satire? Is this a thriller? Why should I care again?
Story-wise, this film seems to lack a plot. It’s as if the film jumps from scene to scene. For example, there was a subplot involving John Boyega’s character but the film goes nowhere with it. The film’s main protagonist is a bland and forgettable character.
The main cast of this film didn’t live up to their full potential. I mean, Tom Hanks is only in the movie for a few scenes. The only standout in the cast was Karen Gillian. Her character was the only one to have any development.
Overall, this film is the epitome of wasted potential.
