Facebook founders criticize 'The Social Network' film

LOS ANGELES, USA - The Social Network film, has been criticized by Facebook founders Mark Zuckerberg and Dustin Moscovitz before its release.

David Fincher directs the film, which depicts the story of how Facebook came about, but not much is known about the project outside of the trailer that has been released.

Fincher, who has helmed movies such as Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, faces negative comments from the Facebook founders who think the film is a dramatization of history , which proves to be less exciting according to Moscovitz. Despite the assessment at last month's D Conference, the founders have not outright condemned the movie, although preferred that it had not been made.

The Social Network is the first major Hollywood outing based entirely on the social networking giant, and it doesn't come as a surprise that the film portrays the founders in a more dramatic light. Hollywood movies have often twisted and reinvented historical facts to set a popcorn rush of entertainment for viewers. Only those who have crossed paths with the founders, and themselves, will know the truth behind how facebook was founded.
