I don't know, I just don't find a story about a bunch of adolescent college students fighting over an idea that stimulating.
You say that like it was just some idea. That idea was worth $25B and counting. I don't know how old you are but maybe that's it. Maybe it's just not going to resonate with an older audience.
I liked the movie because it seemed fairly realistic. Not in the sense that it was exactly what happened but in the sense that it could have happened like that. There really wasn't a "good guy". They all did what was right in their own eyes, as it often happens in real life.
