Goofs

The company's owner explains their project is to create an artificial intelligence that can go anywhere in cyberspace and be able to see through any camera, hear and speak through any phone line, hack computers at will, and even control remotely accessed systems (like the SCV, or the orbital laser system that shot at Bo earlier). However, on more than one occasion, Pericles demonstrates powers that it is unlikely that a computer could have, most notably the ability to levitate a garden hose (a decidedly low-tech device).

A Weird, but clever movie.
7 July 2001 | by (Woodinville, Washington) – See all my reviews

You have always heard of small towns that are said to be the perfect American town. Well, Black River is a too perfect town. Everybody is nice. Anybody that is mean they get rid of. A perfect American town except there is something wrong with the town. There is a "big brother" watching you at every corner. You can never leave the town because "big brother" will not let you. It is a good movie. If you like weird movies then you should see this one.
