Reviews

In an online world, who's controlling who? Puppet master? Victim? Which will you be? When strangers Jim (Matthew Beard - An Education), Eva (Imogen Poots - 28 Weeks Later), Emily (Hannah Murray - TV's Skins) and Mo meet William (Aaron Johnson - Kick Ass) online in his chatroom, they're completely seduced by his fast-talking, charismatic character. But beneath the surface lies a much darker truth. William is a dangerous loner, channeling all his energies into cyberspace. He's become an analyser, a calculating manipulator who finds it almost impossible to interact normally with others in the real world, instead turning his hand to manipulating people online. When the timid Jim opens up to William, it sparks a fascination that quickly turns into a dark downward spiral, with the twisted antagonist coercing the rest of the group to become pawns in his deadly game. As the cat-and-mouse situation escalates to devastating heights, can William's anti-social networking be brought to an end?

Format: DVD
Chatroom is a 2010 British drama thriller film directed by Hideo Nakata, about five teenagers who meet on the internet and encourage each other's bad behaviour.

The plot: Teenagers meet in chat rooms, and on many occasions celebrations take place in the main chat room named "Chelsea teens!". The chatroom is portrayed on screen as a real-life room where people talk as a regular chat room on a computer screen...perhaps stealing a tiny bit from 'Tron'. After a paedophile posing as a girl enters the chat room, they install a password to fully secure the site. The main character's bad behaviour quickly produces problems with parents that try to take his computer and mobile phone away. Things get even more complicated with crime, police, guns and a suicide attempt.

The lowdown: Firstly, the premise of the chatroom actually being acted out in 'realtime' rooms is great as it allows for surreal random characters and great sets, filled with real actors as on-line personas. The cast is good too, with the oh-so-lovely-English-Rose Imogen Poots and Aaron Johnson (Kickass).

Is the Internet really this dangerous for young people? Well, maybe. Of course, the writers have to deliver an exciting script and they arguably deliver. I liked Aaron Johnson as a baddie for a change.

Overall verdict: pretty good.

Another non-horror, but no doubt marketed by one by the powers that be, maybe because the director of it is actually-wait for it-Hideo Nakata, who shocked the world between 1998 and 2000 with the memorable and frightening 'Ringu'. Flash forward to 2010 and we're now dealing with cyber-bullying, though such a worthy and engrossing subject is sensationally blown apart by the flashy high-tech MTV presentation that interpolates upon proceedings with the regularity of leeks in the park after a hammering. Aaron Johnson, (a young dude praised by many, and lifted from innocence by the female director of his first major film, who proceeded to have his babies) is so annoyingly transparent here that you couldn't imagine anyone, no matter how gullible, falling for his self-spoiler manipulation web as he so desperately works to enthrall a select group with "issues" to fight back against something that wasn't even bothering them in the first place till he brought it up! Admittedly coercing a shy loner (sensitively and delicately showcased by Matthew Beard, the real find in this mishmash of zoned-out whining) to kill himself in front of his PC to purge him of his pain is a vile embodiment of Johnson's character as ego-maniac and attention-seeking cretin, and you'd so wish he'd take his own advice. Cyber-bulling is a massive deal today as computers threaten to envelop those who maybe once controlled them, and there's so much the film could do with a subject more likely that the unconvincingly bad wannabee thriller pap of 'Eden Lake', but it just trips on the sidelines and lets a multitude of flashing images and computer graphics faff about in eye-tearing prettiness.Read more ›

One of my favourite films. It's not something you should watch if you're looking to be cheered up. But the story, plot and acting is flawless. It's just amazing.

Never thought it would happen but ive finally found a good british thriller... now you've obviously got a fantastic leading actor which always helps sell a movie like this but its impossible not to become engrossed by the plot and story-line. i heard before i watched it that it was originally a play and when watching it you can clearly see a development of the characters which means little time is wasted... finally ive seen a good british thriller, good times

Format: DVD
Hideo Nakata takes a very simple idea, that of online interaction between people and turns it into something sinister with this film and targeting the angst-ridden, emotionally-charged teens of London he manages to put together a well thought-out and compelling film which whilst not perfect was still an effective British thriller with plenty going for it. A Film 4 production and funded by The National Lottery the small cast of 5 lead characters each have their own reasons for seeking solace online and we are given an insight into their lives whilst at the same time are witness to the Machiavellian behind-the-scenes manipulation by William brilliantly portrayed by Aaron Johnson.

Johnson is excellent in Chatroom it has to be said, he puts in a believable performance as William and commands your attention in the scenes he features. A sociopathic character seemingly without conscience he has his own reasons for being the way he is and time is spent getting to know him and his back-story. Whilst not a sympathetic character by any stretch of the imagination his offline persona and personal life do give an insight into why he acts the way he does and provides an explanation for how intelligent and manipulative he is to be able to wield such power over other people.

Equally impressive is Jim played by Matthew Beard, a shy, introverted character haunted by an event from his childhood and unable to shake off the past. He finds it hard to make friends and seeks an outlet for his loneliness by spending time online, he is drawn to the Chelsea Teens! Chatroom believing that he is making friends with like-minded people and needs the support of people his own age.
