Thoughts on Infamous

ThoughtsInfamous is a film that is trying to show the warnings of becoming obsessed with wanting a social media and wanting to become a celebrity at any stakes. Where this film completely misses the mark, is by showing us just how unlikable Arielle is in the first place, she might come from a difficult life, but she just isn’t making it easier for herself with the pair targeting the same hardworking people they don’t want to be part of. This is just a horrible film, shot badly, horrible characters a couple that just come off terribly for each other. The highlight of the stupidity in this film comes from Arielle commiting all these crimes with a giant tattoo exposed that will make it clear to identify her. It is just dull, offense and never gives us anything to support along the way.

Final Thoughts Infamous is just terrible, despite having the warning of how bad social media obsession can be.
