I felt as though I watched the same scenes over and over. Very annoying. Genuinely ruined my evening

So frustratingReviewed byduggers02Vote: 2/10
I was looking forward to this however I would of happily took a whole season 5 instead of this. Everyone seems impressed but I found it blunt within the first 15 minutes as I was hit with "wrong path" and no other option but to "go back" therefore forcing my story into a direction not quite my choice. I know it says in the duration of this movie that it makes "you think you have a choice but you don't" but you kind of do, a lot of the time except occasionally when you cut the story off (even though personally you don't have to cut it off it could still continue with the same endings that exist rather than "go back") it pulls you out of the universe having to rewatch the same 7 scenarios before your last choice reappears.
It definitely could of been executed cleaner and clearer like Far Cry 5. FC5 made you think you had a choice because it presents you with two options however if you don't decide the game ceases to exist with the third option the choice was available but not visually, you simply just had to "do nothing" but because of that placement it made you feel like you weren't hitting a dead end.
I'm not really sure what the ending was. And as far as I know I watched nearly all the alternate choices for each opportunity given. I have an idea but It just seems even when it's going in the direction the creators have yellow brick road for you its messy and somewhat confusing to then pick back up on. I understand I can't expect a lot from an interactive movie however this isn't something i can see myself enjoying if films were to roll out in future in the same format. I would rather just enjoy my film and use my hand for food rather than clicking a remote and leaving decisions to the real game makers of the world however I do honour black mirror's ambition and regardless of how I feel about this particular film it was still true to black mirrors overall aesthetic.
I've never written an IMDB review before, but the 8.7 score this programme had on here has prompted me to try and correct this artificially inflated score. I can only assume that the first few thousand scores are all put in by the makers, actors, associates etc of the film itself, because the real seserved score is way lower.
The idea that you can control the story at first seemed like a fun idea, and it would be if the choices you made enabled you to reach the end of the film. Because when we make a choice in life we arrive at an outcome. In this film however if you make a choice which is "wrong" then the film pauses and you have to go back to where you were before in the film and make the other choice for the plot to keep moving. I mean WTF? There basically is no choice, you have to eventually make the choice the film wants you to apart from stupid things like what cereal to eat and what type of music to listen to on the bus.
If every choice could have led to an outcome, then would this have been better? Yes, but actually the plot is slow and dull, characters are cardboard cliches and there was no suspense. The best thing about the movie was the 1980's backdrop and references, but you know a film is bad when the most exciting thing about it is when somebody references 'John Menzies' and this gets you more excited than anything else.
The film centres around a game trying to get a good review. Well the film could have taken a leaf out of its own book. Should have been a lot better.
