Storyline

The world is a bleak desolate place where the people live in elevated cities. As the ground is uninhabitable, the citizens spend most of their lives wasting their time in virtual reality. Carver is a dream-breaker whose job is to enter the world of VR and fix what is wrong. And what is wrong is that his gal pal Dinah has been murdered in VR which should not be possible. But Carver soon finds that Dinah has constructed a transducer which allows people to enter VR without other equipment, but creates a rift. That rift causes people to enter VR, but also allows the creatures from the game to enter the real world. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Wow, oldie and not a goodie
22 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this uncut gem from the early days of SciFi Channel. It was their "Cinema Event" of the month or some such. Their way of making the repetitive nature of the channel with all its Buck Rodgers and 70's scifi, seem non-existent. So they threw some money into this concept and got themselves yet another low grade SciFi flick shot in Canada. Pare' was convincing as the lead but seemingly disinterested in his surroundings. The other actors/actresses seemed like they were overacting when matched against him. Though low budget it had some interesting set design. I even believe they built a miniature city for those futuristic exterior shots these films need. No pricey first generation computer effects here. Its a shame too, after seeing the stirring and incredible work of Mamoru Oshii and his film Avalon, I know this film could have been made better with a better budget and finer attention to details in story and effects. Alas, not every director seeks to max his budget for the sake of the art.
