Storyline

Before Tony can get to work on the first day of his new job, he manages to lock himself out of his appartment. To get back in he uses the his new security pass, which resembles a credit card. The card becomes damaged when it is used to open his front door, and then causes mayhem at work when the main computer fails to identify Tony as the new employee. The high-tech building is run by computer, which interprets its programming as meaning; "destroy all threats". The BUILDING is out to get Tony. Written by Rob Hartill

Quotes

Linda Ferillo: [after CAS stops the elevator abruptly and is unable to make it go down with her access card] That's strange. The elevator is suppose to go straight to the bottom if there's a problem.
Tony Minot: [dryly] You know Linda? Your faith in this building would be very touching... if it weren't so damned dangerous.

OK OK, we're not talking Kubrick here!
29 November 2003 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Unfairly trashed little telemovie I feel. Sure its derivative and non too brilliant in its execution (as it were). Simplistic tale of a computer techo who is taken on in a high-rise that is the domain of the computer-in-charge.....a la GREMLINS 2. The computer takes an instant dislike to Reiser and after multiple "violations" marks him for "deletion"

Sure, just about everything you see has been done before...but hell its still entertaining in a B-Grade, got-nothing-else-to-do-anyway kinda way! OK, the script is crap....the fx somewhere between acceptable and less-than-average but Reiser's infectious attitude keeps the thing's head above water!

A solid 5 which makes the thing not a total loss. Watch it, have a laugh!
