Storyline

On a quiet college campus, professor Hobson learns from the dean that a secret society based around hacking has been causing some trouble. Before Hobson can do much investingating, however, he learns that Bobby, one of his star students (and also an active hacker) has been killed. Although Hobson discovers that there really is a secret hacking society that has turned itself into a vigilante gang, he now has the more pressing task of proving to the police that he didn't kill Bobby himself. Will he be able to get to the bottom of this mystery before he gets thrown in jail? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

good idea marred by horrible execution
24 November 2002 | by (Limburg, Belgium) – See all my reviews

When I picked up this movie, it sure had a cool cover. And it was a second-hand cassette that I could buy for a price the same as renting it. So I thought that I could never be screwed buying it. I was quite wrong, I must say.

To begin with something positive, the idea of the movie is quite good. A society of students uses their computer skills to kill off degenerates in the society. For me, that's an idea that have could been used to make an entertaining movie. But director Andy Anderson has chosen the very wrong way and tried to make a mixture between SF and some kind of buddy comedy. The 2 main characters (John Davies & Lauren Lane) try to be funny, but they don't succeed, resulting in a irritated viewer. Also, a young Lou Diamond Phillips in the first 5 minutes of this film. The budget is also very low, but that didn't bother me.

I will even say that many low budget movies are better then those big budget special effects movies Hollywood likes to churn out. But again, the idea of this movie was good enough to make a great movie, but no cigar. Anderson would later make the great Detention (if you believe the comments this movie gets on IMDB), but this sure isn't a great debut for him.

Was this movie made by someone like Jim Wynorski (who made entertaining movies of The Lost Island and Chopping Mall), it would have be nice, easy entertainment. Had David Cronenberg been the director, he would have made a neat, little but intelligent SF/horror flick with some shocking effects. But Andy Anderson made it and this is the result. And you already know what I think about it.
