Storyline

After four years, Jake Cardigan is prematurely awoken from his fifteen year cryogenic punishment to a world very different than the one he knew. Much more than before 'Tek', the highly-addictive electronic designer narcotic of the 21st century, seems to be prevalent. His wife has divorced him and disappeared together with their son. He wants them back and he wants justice for those undercover policemen who were murdered by unknown conspirators which led to his imprisonment for a crime he did not commit. He links up with his ex-partner Sid Gomez, now also an ex-cop, and they go to work for the mysterious Bascom who owns and runs the giant Cosmos security corporation. Their first job is a seemingly easy missing persons case trying to locate a missing scientist who may have developed a crystal to destroy Tek chips.

Good Sci-Fi Movies & Series
12 September 2000 | by (Coastal Georgia) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie, and the series as well, was better than the previous reviewer gave it credit. For being made in 1994 it presaged the movie Matrix in a couple of ways; notably the term used-the "Matrix" (though it referred to different things) and the long coats worn by the stars. I thought it was technologically a pretty good production, and the sci-fi stuff was pretty cutting edge. I thought Shatner did a better job than he otherwise is given credit for. And the sets were nicely done. All in all, it held my interest, got me involved in the stories, made me like the characters, kept me wondering how things would turn out, and had me watching the entire series. And after they were all done, it made me wish they had continued the series with more episodes.

So I gave it a 7.
