Marvellous storyline which has a twist and unexpected ending. It’s been a while not having this kind of movie and truly hard to find these days. For those mystery fans, this is the one. It blew me out completely from the start to the end.

Such a great modern take of a mystery thriller, Searching has so many great twist and turns and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The screenplay is really solid, the directing and use of technology to present this film is really fresh and clever. All mystery thriller fans should definitely check Searching out.

Superb thriller, suspense from start to finish!
Overall: 5
This movie has easily been one of my top and favourite movies of the year. Behind the exciting and thrilling plot, lies lessons and awareness of the dangers that lurks the internet. The plot was extremely well thought through and written. Just as you thought you had it all figured out, a new twist keeps your interest peaked. Additionally, it was refreshing to see a brand new way of how the film was made. I’ve never seen a film delivered in such a way. Five stars, everyone should watch this movie!

One of the best thrillers in 2018
Overall: 5
Absolutely loved this movie! The content is culturally relevant and the storytelling is interesting (through use of technology). Pacing was good, with the right amount of suspense built up for the right moment. The entire movie was captivating throughout - it draws a good balance of various emotions in the audience. The plot seems simple (with twists) but doesn’t take away value of the movie. It conveys multiple messages reflecting the online world as well as family relationships, which can be educational to young people today.

Beautifully directed with never-ending twists
Overall: 5
The beauty of the movie was all about the cameras used and it always gave the perspective of being watched via the internet. This third-person aspect definitely played a huge role in building up the thrill to the ending and ensured that the twists stay in tact without revealing too much and making it too unpredictable at the same time.

Just wow!
Overall: 5
expected this to be a long, draggy movie... but it was completely the opposite! It was relatively short and kept me captivated the whole time! The twist at the end was just so good! Really unexpected! Highly recommended!
