Computer Game gone wrong movie
30 October 2003 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Well. I have to say I saw this film when I was 14-15 and I found it amusing.

It is based around a group of teenagers who gather and play an adventure game together. They try to find the ultimate game and finaly they find a very exciting one that sends terrorists to targets.

They seem to have full control over this terrorist network indeed.

By coincidence they find out that the terrorist acts they plan are executed for real!

Nice twist, but the movie is definetly dated and it hasn't age well.
