Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When the news reporter is covering the "pink ribbon" movement for Megan and Amy, she says that Amy is 15 years old. In fact, Amy had just turned 14 a couple of weeks prior, and it was Megan who would have been turning 15 just a few months later.See more »

This movie is the main argument as to why IMDb should have a rating less than 1, 11 January 2015
Author: Arifs Vicotaum

My god where to start.... this movie is so horribly bad that it actually made me write my first review here on IMDb. First of all, the "acting" is an insult and so is the directing and editing. Michael Goi clearly has no idea what he is doing. Technical screw ups aside, which on their own are already enough to drag the movie down to hell, the whole idea, concept and story are messed up as well.

First of all, the whole "Let's pretend this is actual footage" thing just makes no sense. Never really liked the concept to begin with but this movie just doesn't even try, let's ignore the fact that it would never be allowed in a realistic scenario and that a lot of the stuff in the movie wouldn't have been recorded in the first place by a sane teen, how exactly would you get a hold of effing skype calls in the first place? Next issue is how the girls act.... Michael Goi just has no bloody idea. If aliens were tasked with portraying teenaged human beings this is what they would come up with. Doesn't help that no one in the movie can act for their life. Next, for all the people who are saying that it's the message that counts and not the movie. Two things. One, not gonna say that the internet can't be a dangerous place where teens can screw up, but this is just blowing things out of proportion and is nothing but silly fear mongering by a man who doesn't understand the internet and in the spirit of a pre-civilization human is afraid of that unknown. All in all, the message isn't half as important as people think it is. Two, it's still a movie and it can be criticized as such. It's the ever lasting social justice warrior bullshit of "But the movie has a nice and positive message and is a force for good and as such whoever dares to say a bad thing about it is evil!", well guess what, not the world doesn't work like that. Even if this movie cured cancer, stopped all wars, collected kittens and brought them to orphans and then provided them with loving parents and fed every single hungry person in the world, it was still be a bad painful to watch movie.

And finally, about those 22 final minutes people like to bring up. For one it's shameless padding and two, during that rape scene that actress actually smiled, nearly chuckled. I mean bloody hell, can you get any more unprofessional than that? I burst out laughing at that point. I guess if you have a weak stomach and stuff and are easily offended those last parts can be problematic, but all i see are desperate attempts and a little Michael Goi standing in the background and screaming "Ohoh! Look how disturbing it is! This could be your daughter/sister right now! Please by scared by that and like this movie for the great message it's sending! Be disturbed!". This is just pathetic. It's not even a bad movie in the sense Troll 2, The Room or Birdemic are. It's not an enjoyable bad movie, it's just plain bad.

Overall rating, less than zero.
