Pretty amazing technology for 20 years ago
20 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What I find amazing about viewing these TekWar movies some 20 years later is that so much of the technology shown is "everyday stuff" today

  • ipads, tablets, eyeball recognition, houses run by computer, etc.




This movie was made five years before flash/thumb drives were on the market. Kudos to William Shatner for producing the series.

I guess one day we will have holograms and lifelike robots - wish I would still be around! I know there are some in the works already, not just with us in daily life. (I'm one of those who still does a double-take seeing that the Dick Tracy two-way radio wristwatches from our 1940s comic books are now a reality - so bear with me!)

Most of the story line was pretty good. I thought the ending could have been better - it just sort of stopped.
