After David Kim (John Cho)’s 16-year-old daughter goes missing, a local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead, David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet – his daughter’s laptop.
This thriller is told via the devices we use every day to communicate. Every scene is viewed through a phone camera lens or a computer screen, and the tension builds well. I do have to gloat a little though because even though I didn’t figure out the ending in its entirety, I did figure out who the culprit was before the script led us there.
The technology is balanced – there’s a Windows computer as well as a Mac. But the phones all seem to be iPhone 7s, although why people ever leave that information on their phones to be viewed is beyond me.
I enjoyed the movie.
