Panic Button starts off with the winners of a social network's online competition boarding their private jet. But somethings odd - there's no flight attendants in sight, and an in-flight competition starts

The questions are more than merely personal - whoever's behind it wants the contestants to confront the terrible aspects of themselves, having apparently found great knowledge through the internet. Should they cause trouble, a randomly-selected person from their "friends" list dies.

Naturally these people aren't terribly likable but thats forgivable as their bad aspects being brought up is the main theme of the film. Its a very engaging movie.

The only bad thing about the film was towards, a couple of twists were brought up, which didn't exactly work. Definitely worth watching though!
