Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Circle is a crushing disappointment. With Netflix money, a cast including Patton Oswald, Tom Hanks and Emma Watson and an intriguing central concept it’s almost impossible to mess up. But they did. It’s not that it’s badly made – it isn’t. But it’s just so dull and by the time the dénouement comes around it comes so out of left field that the film ends with barely a whimper. One to miss for sure.
