Disconnect is a kind of a really truly scary film. It’s not in a traditional way of ghost, supernatural, blood, or violence. It’s scary because it is so real. When you fall deep into this movie, you might be need a shower after seeing it. I feel unsafe after seeing the whole film, especially seeing stories on the sad couple and the cyber bullied boy.
In those character, the son disconnects with his father, the wife disconnects with his husband, and the underage disconnects with the society. They all struggle in a unreal cyber world then get hurts.
The movie shows some cyber crimes in todays wired world. Here are 3 stories in 1 movie, that is cyber bullying, identity theft, and underage cyber sex.
A teenage loner is tormented because of fake identity; A hacker thefts a couples identity and savings; A local TV journalist interviews a underage sex offers online.
As the lines of this film write ‘everything you do, someone out there can see.’ Someone you don’t know is watching and tracking you online. He can record your personal info., read your emails and you Facebook updates, track your web browsing actives, even get your passwords, credit card information, and bank account. That’s horrible! It’s like we are naked in the internet!
