Faking and pretending are not always innocent pranks...
20 October 2014 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

All inventions mankind developed have - apart from advantages and progress - brought along their use for pleasure and/or for felonies. Internet is no exception here, and uwantme2killhim? depicts a story about a misuse of Internet opportunities. The screenplay is solid, the thrill is out there, with sophisticated twists included, and the performances of the 2 protagonists - Jamie Blackley as Mark and Toby Regbo as John - are distinct. The almost 1,5 hours pass without unnecessary ballast, and the film can easily be recommended to be shown at schools for teens - despite the fact that the issues depicted happened decades ago and, since then, lots of countermeasures have been introduced.

Being based on a true story provides additional value to the film; strong 7 points from me.
