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.

Trivia

The first time Gary comes up to Milo with "helpful code," there is a glimpse of the source. If you look closely at the byte casting in the if/else statement it vertically reads "GET "..."HEAD ". Followed immediately by Gary's statement. "Oh God. Oh, so much fun. I love doing this." See more »

Goofs

When Bob comes back to his office where Milo is waiting, Milo asks him if "everything was ok." When he says that, he puts is elbow on the arm of the chair, but when the camera shows him from a different angle, his arm is down and then he puts if back on the arm of the chair as if he had not done that before.

Quotes

Reporter: Gary Winston once said that any teenager in a garage could put him out of business. Is that what you've done?
Milo: [Looking around him] This is a garage.

Techno thriller panders to a digital generation
13 January 2001 | by (Atlanta, GA - USA) – See all my reviews

I praise Hollywood for creating a movie that does not have mass appeal. Too often movies of this type are designed to be for too wide an audience and all credibility is lost. This film avoids this, for the most part, by primarily appealing to a core target audience in the 15 to 35 age range.

The credits sequence began and I immediately cringed and thought, "Hacker 2...ugh." but it didn't turn out that way, much to my pleasure. Horrible computer idiocy was kept to a minimum, and generally only used for dramatic effect rather than the "computerz r kewl" aspect.

The dramatic performances were very good in my opinion and the film was superb in creating suspense. The soundtrack is rather excellent as well.

By my guess, huge changes were made to this film (based on the trailer) and I look forward to seeing an alternate version or cut-scenes on the DVD.

I definitely recommend this movie for anyone who likes technology and computers. For everyone else, I don't know if you would like it, honestly, but I can tell you it's not a whole movie about computers.
