Goofs

The white laptop Jane uses to look at the IP file is a MacBook, yet the windows and command prompt are those of a Windows system. Not only is the C:\WINDOWS\Desktop> prompt a windows one (as well as it saying MS-DOS), but it isn't even valid for newer versions of Windows. This, as well as the output from the mem command, indicates the computer is running Windows 95, 98, or Me, which is very unlikely for such a new and expensive computer. The mem command is also used twice (and edited to include specific information) to look like she's doing something, when in fact it accomplishes nothing. See more »

worth the time
9 December 2012 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Surprisingly enough this film had a solid plot even though it has been done thousands of times before. The film keeps you invested throughout its entirety and has the energy of suspense/intrigue. The action sequences were well thought out and done in a real sense rather than CGI or special effected. The film has a Bourne theme to it with the female lead. Although there are real no known actors in the film it is carried rather well with the cast.

If your film savvy lies in interest of spy films with black ops and secrecy involved and betrayal than this film will be right in your wheel house. I myself enjoyed it and would recommend it.
