PROFILE
Rated: R
Release Date: May 14, 2021
Director: Timur Bekmambetov
Stars: Valene Kane, Shazad Latif, Christine Adams, Morgan Watkins
Plot: A female journalist tries to befriend a terrorist recruiter for a story, but she gets more than she bargained for
 
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.
