This movie is the fictional story of computer programming genius Milo Hoffman after graduating from Stanford and getting out into the competitive world of computer software. In his contemplation of where to begin his career, he is contacted by Gary Winston whose character is loosely based on Bill Gates. Winston is the CEO of a company called NURV, and they are on the brink of completing the global communication's system, Synapse. They need Hoffman to help them meet their launch date, so after much thought and with the full support of his girlfriend Alice, he accepts the job. Tragedy soon after strikes and Milo becomes suspicious of the company he has been wrapped up in. He learns that trusting anyone could be a mistake, and that nothing is as it seems. Written by

At the end of the cast list in the end credits, there is a section entitled "Geeks", much in the same vein as "Stunts". See more »
I was genuinely surprised by how much I enjoyed this film. Tim Robbins is excellent, as always. His uncanny Bill Gates like character will leave true computer geeks rolling in the aisles. Geeks will get the inside jokes of the film....but the script doesn't leave the computer illiterate hanging. I thought they did a good job of thoroughly explaining things to avoid confusion. Ryan Phillipe did a pretty good job...as did Claire Forlani. I gave this movie a vote of 9...I can't wait for it to come out on DVD.
