Clint Says: Wait for the digital release
The director for this film has a very specific style. If you've seen Unfriended, Unfollowed, or Searching then you know what I mean. He loves to have almost the entire film play out on a computer screen or other technological devices.
The first time around it was unique and interesting. The second time was okay. The third time felt tired. Now it feels like a bad stunt.
The bad thing is that this story is so compelling that it could have been a fantastic "regular" movie. It loses a lot by using the technology gimmick.
I would love to see this story redone in an action/suspense style film. That would absolutely be worth seeing. For now, I would say wait for the digital release.
