When Evolver crushes the guy under the car by lowering the jack, Evolver does so by pushing down the jack handle. This is not correct. The handle twists to release the pressure. See more »

Great sci-fi fun!
23 May 1999 | by (Hamilton, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was entertaining and for the most part kept my full attention. There is a lot of computer talk, so if computers aren't your thing then you might search elsewhere. Basically, a kid whose excellence at virtual reality games grants him a free robot named "Evolver". Well, Evolver goes nuts and starts killing people. The story is fun to follow, with characters that are easy to follow and interesting. For the most part, cheesy dialogue but that is expected. Enjoyable little sci-fi gem, check it out!
