The Circle Review by Kimmy:
There was too much potential for this movie to be as mediocre as it was. Great concept. Great actors that seemed like great fits for their characters. The book was good. The movie just didn’t work. I knew going in that it was going to be different than the book because one main character wasn’t even in the movie. Everything was rushed. You could not get into the movie because there was no character development. They just jumped theme to theme. I imagine people watching this that haven’t read the book remain wondering why this seeming nonsense is happening. The ending was very significantly different than the book, for the worse. Just a poor effort all around that did not need made. It’s still worth a watch just to think about the scientific/dystopian concepts at the core.
