BLACKBERRY (Released to Theaters USA 2023)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

BlackBerry—fictional treatment of a factual story—earns its watch as it tells about the rise and fall of the company that built the BlackBerry mobile phone. It details the processes involved in empire building, endeavoring to keep cherished ethical mores in place while trying to balance work and pressures of the market with serious technical competition. The movie works for its audience and expands an audience’s understanding behind the scenes when a new piece of tech is released to the public.

? Yes? No? Maybe?                                                                                      

Yes. The film is not a documentary even though it runs like a reality-based story. The movie is classified as a fictional account. The writing of the story is exceptionally good. The acting interprets several different personality-types very well. Know that the dialogue does contain profanity that precludes it from being a child-adult share.
