#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – 5 teenagers are introduced to each other in a chatroom called “Chelsea Teens!”, all with different personalities. But when one shows its darker side, it threatens the life of the others.
Plot: When strangers Jim, Eva, Emily and Mo meet William online in his new ‘Chelsea Teens!’ 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.

Interesting movie shows teen loneliness and the dangers of internet manipulation
It’s a rather odd movie, this Chatroom. Most of the story (not all) takes part in cyberspace, which is visualized in an interesting way. The chatroom is not shown through a computer screen with typed text, but as a real room where our characters meet. This gives this movie quite a strange feel, theatrical at points, but it is quite effective.
Will is the guy behind the chatroom. It all starts out fairly innocent but slowly we get drawn into his real intentions. The people who come in his chatroom all have their own issues. They are lonely in real life, traumatized or misunderstood, and in the chatroom they find people who they can tell their stories to. At first this seems to have a healing effect, but slowly we see that all is not what it seems to be.
What this movie shows, IMO, is the loneliness many people face, and also the dangers of using internet for our main communication. Like Will’s mum tells him at one point; ‘You can not help yourself if you are only talking to strangers. You need to communicate with us.’ The plot is not too difficult to figure out and quite predictable, but it’s worked out reasonably well and for me, the movie just got under my skin. There is no winner in this movie. I would not name this to be a thriller, but more a psychological drama. The feeling I am most left with is sadness.
Though this movie doesn’t come close to the strength Hideo Nakata’s ‘Ringu’ or ‘Dark Water’ have, and has a whole different feel to it, I do consider it worth watching.
Social Network Room(s)
This is more a social drama than a horror. And it is described as a drama thriller here too. Not something you might expect from Nakata. But then again he seems to handle the whole cyberspace setting pretty good. It took me a few seconds to realize what he was doing with the chat-rooms. And I have to say, I liked what I was seeing.
But it is not enough to sustain a whole movie/story. There is also quite a bit of social commentary going on. And while it touches topics that are more than hot, I don’t think it handles the whole thing as good as it could. There seems to be something missing. I can’t put my finger on it, but I would have loved a bit more, especially because the setting allows you to delve into areas, that might not seem available if you would have done this conventionally.
