Trivia

The scenes in the computer lab were filmed over the period of a few days in a school in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada that taught visual arts. The interior locations were not changed very much from how they looked in real life: the only major changes were the addition of some colorful lights and the windows were blocked out with paper. The main theater where the "supercomputer" was housed was in reality a gigantic green-screen room that the school used for the creation of virtual sets and motion-captured action. The school was paid $5,000 for the use of the facilities in the film. It has since been bought out by a much larger school. The futuristic exterior of the computer lab is actually a government food inspection agency half a block away from the school. See more »

This movie is just awful
23 December 2003 | by (Vancouver Island, BC, Canada) – See all my reviews

I appears to me that this movie was originally filmed with the intent to be used for a video game.. Almost the entire movie is filmed in the first person shooter format.. and you can tell when the input of the gamer/watcher is required. It is my guess that the original format was rejected as a game and never used... So to try to salvage something out of it, the film maker decided to make a movie out of it.. This movie is so bad, I think it may even gain momentum as a cult following like that of others in this category like "Attack of the killer tomoato's"

This move is a "C" rated movie if not lower,

Avoid it unless you are studying how bad a movie can get
