A shallow PSA disguised as a movie
28 May 2016 | by cosmopathSee all my reviews

As many fellow IMDb users have said, this film shows cyberbullying in a completely unrealistic and over-exaggerated way. The entire concept of the movie is laughable. The acting is dreadful. It fits into almost every modern cliché.

Only reason this monstrosity doesn't get a 1 is due to its reasonable moral that it attempts to teach, and it has apparently done its job to some extent.

Overall, there are much better films that successfully grasp the concept of online bullying. If your intent is to teach others or learn yourself about the consequences of cyberbullying through film, look elsewhere immediately. If you want a good movie to laugh at, this is a good choice.
