This is Sci-Fi masterpiece!
17 November 2001 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that really surprised me. I did not, for one second, think that it would be this great. But I was brutally wrong, and I'm glad that I was, because this is one of the finest sci-fi films of all time! The Incredible atmosphere covering the film and the visual style created by the director makes it a unique experience. A ride! A ride you need to take in order to know what real sci-fi is all about. Lars Bom, playing the lead character J.B. does it as a pro, leaving no doubt that J.B. is the best at what he does.He hacks into computers. Though I'm sure he's never done it under pressure before. He has 35 hours to find out who's stolen his bosses money, or....he'll die. Simple? Not really!
