Anna Katharina Schwabroh,
An unsuspecting, disenchanted man finds himself working as a spy in the dangerous, high-stakes world of corporate espionage. Quickly getting way over-his-head, he teams up with a mysterious femme fatale.
Computer scientist Hannon Fuller has discovered something extremely important. He's about to tell the discovery to his colleague, Douglas Hall, but knowing someone is after him, the old man leaves a letter in his computer generated parallel world that's just like the 30's with seemingly real people with real emotions. Fuller is murdered in our real world the same night, and his colleague is suspected. Douglas discovers a bloody shirt in his bathroom and he cannot recall what he was doing the night Fuller was murdered. He logs into the system in order to find the letter, but has to confront the unexpected. The truth is harsher than he could ever imagine... Written by
When Douglas is in the 1930 reality and in the pool of the hotel he grabs the revolver and he can be seen to check if it is cocked, which it already is. Then he places the barrel in the bartenders mouth and threatens to shoot him. It's believed that when the bartender pushes the barrel of the revolver out of his mouth and Douglas pushes it back in that he is re-cocking the already-cocked gun. However, if you watch after the bartender pushes the gun from his mouth, Douglas moves the hammer of the gun back into place (because he believes he's going to get his answer from the bartender). This makes re-cocking the gun necessary when the bartender doesn't answer after all. See more »
Movie touches idea about creation and living in the virtual world and how it could impact you, how power makes you ill and crazy and you start to destroy your creation.
Yes, someone maybe can claim a movie dull sometimes, but it's really different mood, it's not action-based, but thought and dialog based. And end, altought I guessed it could be like that way, surprised me anyway.
In overall, good, very interesting point of view to virtual worlds and playing god theme. Hollywood ending is somehow very oversweet (for me doesn't matter, I like happy endings sometimes, when it involves romance :)), it raises many points to think about.
