I started watching this movie when some of the scenes started looking familiar, I remembered playing a game demo when windows 95 came out around 1996 called Maximum Surge and thought it was great. The live action graphics were great for that time, considering other games that were being released in 96 (Duke Nukem 3D, Donkey Kong Country). I remember playing the demo over and over because as a preteen i couldn't get enough of Yasmine, and also because i thought "WoW! how can u get any better in graphics than real people?" The full game was never released sadly because Digital Pictures, the company that was making the game went out of business. They ended up selling the rights off to some other company and the lazy asses took all the prerecorded game footage and built a week movie out of it. As a video game this would have done a lot better! someone screwed up big time, and robbed the gamers of that time a possibly great game. whoever thought it would be a good idea to take 1996 video game footage and try to put it into a movie in 2003 were out of their minds.
