What is 123movies?

123Movies is a network of Vietnamese sites where you can watch movies for free. It is completely free to watch. Until 2018, it was broadcasting from Vietnam through the official domain, but because of the claims of the American Motion Picture Association, the government was forced to block it.

Currently, the site continues to exist thanks to clone pages. They offer the same movies and functionality as the original site. Therefore, 123movies fans always have access to their favorite movies and TV shows from anywhere in the world.
Why is the 123movies brand popular in the English-speaking world?

The English-speaking community is sensitive to copyrights. So if you want to watch a movie, you have to buy either it or a subscription to legal sites. At the same time it is hard to call a good movie a cheap pleasure. Not everyone is ready to pay a lot of money for a monthly subscription.

The governments of English-speaking countries also pay close attention to Internet piracy. That is why the illegally posted films are quickly removed and the sites are blocked.

The salvation for many people in this situation is exactly 123movies. It broadcasts from Vietnam and it is quite difficult for the government of other countries to influence it. Moreover, the large number of clones of the site simply does not allow it to do so. Therefore, users can enjoy watching their favorite movies without any restrictions and problems. The site is absolutely safe for use in English-speaking countries.
