I don't even know where to begin.
The premise is ok, yet seen many times But in this movie, it is executed very poorly
The main flaw is the same as in Nerve (2016), which has a similar plot. There is NO WAY something like this could exist without the police noticing it, or someone denouncing it.
Another major flaw is in the begining. Bad guys say they kidnap the girlfriend. So Matt takes his phone and tries to call her, but no answer. We learn later in the movie that it was a lie all along, and that the girlfriend has been at work the whole time. What a bad luck! Had the grilfriend answer her phone, or just send a simple text message during the day, it would have crushed the whole movie.
The behaviour of the main character also makes no sense. During the whole film, he disobeys the instructions, risking his girlfriend's life. So why not call the police?
The worst scene is when he goes in a restaurant and finds a laptop with the whole stuff, the website, the streaming, the viewers commenting...etc. Then he runs away. Geez, just take the bloody laptop to the police!
The ending gives almost no answers but we saw it coming. Who were the kidnappers? How and why do they do this? We won't know...
Overall: an already-seen movie, but badly executed, with too many inconsistencies to take it seriously.
