Not as awful as some say
21 July 2003 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

This is a movie of the "sympathetic" kind. Full of good intentions, a little bit too quickly written at no doubt. There is no real "hip hop" movies in France (well, I could talk about "old school" for instance, G@mer is best for me), this one fills this gap, it is a hip-hop movie with some esthetic ideas (the gamer who mixes real life and game), but a little over-played, too much sometimes, Saïd Tagmaoui is far from his best (you can know him from "la haine" or "three kings"), maybe JP Kalfon could have been a really funny character here but he is not used enough. Will I dare to say it... I enjoyed this little movie, this is not "antitrust", "tron" or "hackers" but it will be ok in a computer-relative movie collection !
