Showtimes: 4:15 p.m. Friday through Wednesday at Skyline Cinema in Dillon.This is one of those deplorably gratuitous movies that wants to have it both ways, but gets nothing right. Its about a website that allows you to watch live and streaming! as some poor sap gets killed. The more hits that come in, the faster the victim dies. And the tactic is never quick and easy like a gunshot to the head its protracted and complicated. In theory, the thriller from director Gregory Hoblit (Fracture) is intended as an indictment of societys moral decay of our primal and voyeuristic urges, of the fact that the boundaries that once defined whats considered shocking have long since been obliterated. But its actually a shameless celebration of that very phenomenon, not unlike the Saw movies. R for some prolonged sequences of strong gruesome violence and language. 110 min.
