Not bad, just a bit lazy

I watched this movie and eXistenZ on the same day, and liked this one far better. The premise (a continuously existing virtual world, complete with virtual conscious entities) is very similar to a book called Realtime Interrupt by James Hogan. Of course we need to have a few murders, and our hero is the prime suspect who has to solve the mystery singlehandedly, and the plot twists are all predictable. I guess it's my experience studying artificial intelligence that made me appreciate the attention paid to the world itself (after you download into a virtual body for a few hours and then leave, the virtual character tries to figure out where he is and where he's been for the last two hours). Not as bad as it could have been.
