App - Good in phone and average in movie
22 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is one of those movies which highlights the negative aspect of the modern dependency of people in technology. It's not an irony that the app in the move is named after "Siri".

The concept is wonderful. What will happen to you if the app controls you and decides your action on your day to day life. But again it only focuses on the partying, private life etc in the movie rather than an interesting crime plot. Nevertheless it's a good effort

The movie loses its focus when it starts killing people upon its own- does it have virtual memory or the artificial intelligence to decide how to kill and when to kill and what to use. How can a app know that it has to explode itself because someone is going to destroy the phone? It's bizarre. The movie is not predictable at the end but it's also not such a suspense that it can make people amaze. How can a doctor use such untested technology and ready to lose out patient and that too developed by a small street tech guy and not corporate giant?

But kudos to the effort of trying a different theme which can also make people think twice before getting addicted and opening their entire life in the virtual world. If you like a different movie and don't mind spending 90 mins, then it's OK to watch it
