- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsGlenn Howerton is a real stand out, commanding all the attention whenever he is on screen. The compelling docu-style directing builds tension even though we all know where it's heading. I would definitely recommend this movie.
- Rating: 3.5 out of 5 starsAn insightful movie with great acting from both of the leads of the movie. The shots and dialogue used in the movie help enhance the story that most people kind of know. It's definitely worth checking out because there's so much more to the story of Blackberry.
- Rating: 4 out of 5 starsBlackberry begis slowly but picks up steam shortly. The movie captures the uneasy alliance between businessmen and techies, and sustains the suspense till the end. A fun movie, check it iut.
- Rating: 4.5 out of 5 starsMy son and I really enjoyed this movie! I clearly remember when Blackberries were a new, big deal. So fun and interesting to see a story about something so nostalgic. I thought the acting was great and the movie stayed pretty true to the era with the environment, costuming, hairstyles. It moved along well and was entertaining to watch unfold. There was one incident that was so predictable that I cant imagine it really happened (had to do with a cab ride). Before it took place I hoped they wouldnt take it in that predictable direction, but they did. I think they thought it might add a little suspense but I was disappointed. If that situation truly did occur, Ill eat my words, but I doubt it. Thats the only reason I knocked off a half star. Otherwise it was a very enjoyable flick!
- Rating: 4.5 out of 5 starsI thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It was suspenseful, fast-paced, and laugh-out-loud funny. The story was really interesting from a tech and historical standpoint and the film was highly evocative of the 90s and how tech start-ups operated back then. The acting was good and I found myself rooting for the characters , even when they weren't being that noble. Who knew a story about the development of the first smartphone could be this engaging? A high energy soundtrack and effective use of archival footage just added to the fun.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsThis is what movies are all about.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsNot what I expected. Heartfelt story of Canadian startup that pioneered the smartphone but failed to keep up. Humorous twist to Jim Balsillie's character makes it as entertaining as it is sad. Superb acting leads to a surprisingly comedic biography. A must see!
- Rating: 4.5 out of 5 starsI went into this movie expecting it to be a horribly boring life story. BUT I WAS WRONG! This movie exceeded all of my expectations. Acting was fantastic, storyline was both accurate (so I've read) and amazing. My one and only complaint is that the actors who were supposed to be Canadian in the movie didn't really sound Canadian, but that's a very small critique to give to such a wonderful movie. You should watch this especially if you're into the manufacturing or technology industry.
- Rating: 0.5 out of 5 starsFell asleep and didnt laugh once. idk what was supposed to be funny
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsPhenomenal film, truly. Even if you don't give a single tiny shred of a crumb of a sh*t about the Blackberry phone, this movie still manages to be interesting, engaging and even genuinely funny at times. Glenn Howerton rocked this role hardcore and the cinematography alone makes it a must-see. Do yourself a favor and go watch Blackberry. It's great.
