Film Brief: Unfriended

Unfriended - poster smallSince Modern Family beat Unfriended to the punch by framing an entire episode within an OS X desktop, you can’t give the feature film a whole lot of credit for originality.  But it’s still fairly effective, and holds your interest for the brief 80 min. running time.  The problem is that Unfriended soon corners itself, then relies on one ridiculous, unexplained theory of the rope solution after another to arrive at its end.  Could have been so much better if more thought had gone into the plot.

Though hesitant to watch a film shot in this format, I remembered back to how good The Blair Witch Project was in thinking outside the box.  Difference is, the storyline worked there.  3/10
