Movie Description:
From the minds behind Searching comes Missing, a thrilling roller-coaster mystery that makes you wonder how well you know those closest to you. When her mother (Nia Long) disappears while on vacation in Colombia with her new boyfriend, June's (Storm Reid) search for answers is hindered by international red tape. Stuck thousands of miles away in Los Angeles, June creatively uses all the latest technology at her fingertips to try and find her before it's too late. But as she digs deeper, her digital sleuthing raises more questions than answers...and when June unravels secrets about her mom, she discovers that she never really knew her at all.—Screen Gems

Awful and outdated

I'm not sure what movie people are reviewing here but this one is something to forget and move on from. Really, a teenager on google figuring out the mystery of the decade, cracking passwords like Google and finding task rabbits that care so much about the greater good of their work. Having FBI agents tell her all about the case as it's going on. Sure. One of the worst movies I've seen in awhile. It was akin to looking directly at my smartphone for over 90:00 with no point or purpose. I simply don't understand the allure of a move where there is a bad plot, no acting, and nothing but noise clicks. Skip it.

Too convulted for a social media movie.

Checked this one out cause I watched it's prequel a while ago and was into it. It's more or less the same. The way it's filmed and the plot is similar but this one gets too far fetched on the latter.

It did feel too long and dull as nothing of significance was happening most of the time and whatever was happening wasn't engaging or interesting at all mostly cause of the uncharismatic lead who wasn't eye catching at all and the oversentimental scenes dragging it's runtime. Movie takes itself very seriously with too many vine beat tracks whenever some new unimportant information is revealed.

The ending is where missing's plot lost it's way as it was too violent and cliched. Searching had a seemingly authentic finale but this one took it too far down hard to believe territory.

On the whole though, there was some potential to make it better but it's ending pulverized the hope I had for it.

A sequel in equal, yet variable enough ways.

Missing is a sort of sequel to the 2018 film Searching. Missing is directed and co-written by Nicholas D. Johnson and Will Merrick. Theirs were the editors of Searching. With small references to Searching, the film responds somewhat to the previous film, but is otherwise separate from this film. Both films are set in the same world.

In the film, June (Storm Reid), her mother Grace (Nia Long) and her new boyfriend Kevin (Len Leung) go on vacation to Colombia. June agrees to pick them up from the airport when they return. Furthermore, June uses her time alone at home, to party with friends.

When the holidays are over, June is ready to pick up her mother and boyfriend. They don't report to June. June reports her problem to the police, but receives little help. June uses all the technology and knowledge within her reach to look for answers herself.

This film is portrayed in a similar way to the film Searching. Everything in the picture are screen recordings from laptops, telephones or other cameras. For example, the editors of Searching and now directors of Missing have portrayed this film in familiar, but also creative ways. They even updated this movie a bit and incorporated new or more popular apps and social media in this movie like TikTok.

Both films are about the same problem where the main character suddenly loses a loved one without a trace. However, both films are different. In Searching, a grown man has lost his daughter and tries to find her again. An older adult man may be less technical, but has adult rights and skills. In Missing, a teenage daughter goes missing her mother without a trace, but she has enough technical skills to find some traces and hints on her own. Because of her younger age, she only has fewer rights, which means that she cannot get or ask for everything from the police, for example. In this way, the main characters of both films encounter the same problem and encounter different situations and problems. For example, both films have enough variations to come across as different.

The mystery of Missing is a bit more on the predictable side compared to Searching. While watching, if you are older than a teenager, you can try to solve the problems that the main character encounters in a more mature way. You may notice other things yourself, so that some twists and turns remain a bit trite. Furthermore, Missing lacks some eye for detail and you can ask yourself how some images were captured.

Fortunately, Storm Reid knows how to carry the film well, because it is largely only told from her perspective. In this way she shows well the different wisdoms that her character has and also knows how to show different emotions. By seeing what she is typing, or wanting to start typing, you can also understand her thinking a little better. The responses she gets from others also arrive in a credible manner and time, making it seem as if the others themselves think about their reactions for a moment.
