Storyline

In the near future, a new law has criminals sent to a virtual reality world as their prison, built by a shadowy corporation called Zircon based in Seattle. The designer of the system, Steven Falcon, realizes the danger of it being overloaded and of hackers who try to break in and steal files only to have the prisoners try to break out via that method. When Falcon threatens to quit the operation, he becomes marked for murder by his employers who force him to enter the Matrix virtual reality/afterlife to find the source of the danger of the system crashing.

This movie is crap.
30 January 2001 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of, if not the absolute worst movies I have ever had the misfortune of seeing. I only rented it because I happen to like Julie Benz, but she couldn't save it for me. The plot is hopeless, and the acting is worse. The special effects are dated, so you really have no excuse for seeing this, unless you like to suffer.

It doesn't even fall into the so bad it's good type movie.
