Storyline

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.

Entertaining and intriguing.
26 May 2001 | by (Cincinnati, OH) – See all my reviews

The aspect of speeding up network traffic was definitely intriguing, but of course nothing much was done with it in the story since this is, after all, a mainstream movie. As a software developer (a.k.a. Geek) I was hoping to see this concept developed more. Very entertaining and I recommend it.
