Storyline

A political thriller that charts the exploits of disillusioned ex-hacker Terell Lessor. A return to New York, coupled with a humiliating attempt at getting a new job, serves as the catalyst for him to take action against those who slighted him in the past. Employing strategically placed spy-cams, and operating in tandem with backer, strategist and lover Olivia, he captures compromising footage and broadcasts the edited clips via a newly-minted website. Recognizing the power of their model, the two begin to target CEOs, politicians, those who represent the worst of the establishment. Soon Terell's every move is front-page news, law enforcement is after him, and copy-catters are taking his abduction-and-confession model to extremes he never imagined. With these forces colliding, Terell has to decide whether his actions are sustainable - a decision that will compromise his agenda, his first taste of romance, and his physical wellbeing.

Complete crap
15 September 2007 | by (St. Louis) – See all my reviews

If you like Michael Moore movies then you'll love this one. The main character (Terell) is obviously more over the top in his methods, but they both ambush powerful figures, videotape them, then edit the footage to make them look as bad as possible. It's really sleazy and hard to root for him as a hero unless you're some kind of anti-establishment, anarchist, Marxist, or assorted nut job. The movie sets up all these straw men for Terell to expose who are ridiculously stereotypical. They're all racist, arrogant, rich, greedy, snobby, condescending. The film tries to convince you that every white housewife is a bitch, every white kid is a spoiled brat, every white person who works in an office is a pompous jerk. I can take a well-done movie where the villain is a senator or CEO, but I don't want to be preached to that there's an organized establishment designed to protect itself and keep everyone else down.

An annoying plot line involves how the hero is a computer genius but was previously forced out of his company at age 19 by venture capitalists who took his invention and got rich off it while he got nothing. It's just more stereotypical crap. And if he's such a genius how come he can't get his life going again afterward? Because he's a spiteful jerk who sits around feeling sorry for himself instead of moving on with his life.
