A gang of four eyed crooks led by Kurt Bishop (McCarthy) are ripping off top dollar computer chips from a list of factories. The night they hit Dynaphase Systems, two dirty employees are staying late using company resources to develop their own plans for a security microchip worth millions of dollars. Psychopathic Bishop raids the Dynaphase facility and downloads the mainframe before the employees have a chance to completely erase their work from it. When Bishop discovers the value of the stolen, but partially erased information, he sets out after the rest of the chip design, letting nothing stand in his way. Written by

Rutger Hauer really should get himself a new agent. Last night I was horribly fascinated by his 1997 movie "Bleeders". It was so awful it was like watching a train wreck... I couldn't look away!
Then this afternoon "New World Disorder" came on, and it didn't sound too bad.
Hauer plays your typical grizzled anti-tech cop. Everything from references to 8-tracks, the beat up old car he drives, to his wardrobe complete with bow tie beats this into your brain throughout the whole movie! Gimme a break! He deserves better. Some of the old Rutger shows through, but generally he plays an old fart and it pained me to watch!
The soundtrack music was lame and many of the characters were flat, it played exactly like a "made for TV" movie. The plot was okay, and it barely kept me watching, but it could have been so much better! How disappointing.
If you really like Rutger Hauer, as I do, you can get a few moments enjoyment from when he is able to put a little personality into the role, but generally this movie was a predictable waste of time.
