So bad it's actually Funny...
3 January 1999 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Watching the dish one day me and a friend where flipping through the channals and happened to discover Terminal Entry on one of the channels. It said AO (adult Only) so we thought what the hell! Only if we knew the truth. Just the cheap credits make you want to turn it off right away. Let alone the plot. A bunch of high school kids hack into this Terriorist Satellite and hack into this "game". Now how do they get the password for this game. SImple at the start of the movie with the only NUDITY in it anywhere. AO my ass. Well anyway they start playing this game and are telling "Agents" who happen to be real to assassinate and blow up all these places. Well then this one moron who hacked the game, decides to blow up have the united states which ends up really happening but he doesn't know that it is. Finally He decides to top it all off, and to Agent # 23 gives the location of the farm house, and tells him to kill the six kids in side and even downloads his picture into the computer so he knows who to kill. Well this is one agent right..Well when they show up TO KILL 6 TEENAGERS, theres 10 of them , then suddenly more and more appear outta no where. Then of course the military guys that have there own plot happening show up and just makes the movie even more screwed. You don't need to be a thinker to watch this one. It was a good laugh though!
