When Dale is on approach to Burbank he says he is intercepting the approach course ILS runway 8. He then reports just passing the middle marker which is only 0.4 miles from the airport and way too late for him to be intercepting the final approach course. He reports at 1300 feet (he should be at 1000), but the altimeter shows 620 feet which is below the airport altitude of 775. Also, the GPS shows him still 35.4 miles away from the airport. (Additionally, the entire approach is conducted in visual conditions where he'd be able to see the approaching towers from a long distance away.) See more »

Her driver's license. Her credit cards. Her bank accounts. Her identity. DELETED.
The net is an excellent movie! It's about Angela Bennett(in a great performance of Sandra Bullock) who is a computer expert who works for the Cathedral Company, cleaning virus and testing games for the clients. Angela is a typical nerd who doesn't have friends outside of the cyberspace,almost doesn't take vacations and go out, and stays almost all the time connected. One day her friend Dale Hessman(Ray McKinnon) asks her to help him,sending Angela a disk with a strange program that has many confidential informations. At the same night, when Dale was going to meet her, he is suddenly killed in a plane crash.Going to Mexico in her vacation,Angela meets a beautiful guy called Jack Devlin (Jeremy Northam)who shows to be a cold blood killer bastard and one of the guys behind all the secret of the Diskette.
Her life then turns into a nightmare: All her records are erased and she is given the new identity of Ruth Marx, a woman with serious problems with the police.
This movie is great because it shows how we, humans,depend a lot of the computers and machines(sometimes more that we should) and how vulnerable we are if someday ,someone decides to control and change our personal records,without letting us the chance to prove the error.
