A different change of pace from "action man" movies, yet silly.
26 December 1998 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Just when I thought I'd be seeing another action-packed turkey, WIRED TO KILL did turn out as a decent surprise. Set in the year 1998, it looks too frightening enough to make us wonder how hard we're surviving a lot of society's problems. Imagine what mankind's future would be like someday! The film has an inventive twist to the usual gun-toting theme. In it, a crippled teenager uses a radio controlled device via his computer to hunt down and blast his enemies to kingdom come! That effect makes for some slow pacing, and the film itself goes downhill a bit, but it's almost predictable for the viewer to find out what happens next. Those hospital announcements and voice-overs heard several times are silly and annoying, but they often stage its dark, frightful, maybe controversial setting. It's not so much like these "warriors in the future" movies from the 80s as this shows mankind's ability to overcome the struggling ways of fate. WIRED TO KILL isn't revolutionary nor is it dumb, but it manages us to think about what calamities lie ahead.
