Storyline

Max Peterson is a globe-trotting techno-whiz who installs security systems on computers. He receives an anonymous gift: a phone which sends messages that enable him to win at a casino. Max soon finds himself pursed by hit men, the casino's security chief, and a CIA operative. Who's sending Max messages? Previous recipients of similar windfalls have ended up dead. After a couple of close scrapes, Max realizes he's in danger, so he tries to find out the root of the conspiracy - which seems to have access to every security camera in the world - before he's the next victim. Why is this happening to him, and who can he trust? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not worth viewing, my opinion, unless you enjoy looking at an attractive cast, no matter what the lines
20 December 2011 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Max (Shane West) installs security systems for computers all over the world. To the chagrin of his latest client, he sets off an alarm to prove how great the security is, causing minor havoc. Soon, the hotel he has been staying at gives him an elaborate mobile phone, which has a plethora of aps. One gives him the ability to beat the tables at the local gambling venue. But, all too soon, Max realizes someone is tracking him with this phone and, horror, he learns that other folks who had just such a device ended up getting bumped off. Ouch! Soon, Max crosses paths with undercover agents like John (Edward Burns) and upsets other spies like Ving Rhames and Martin Sheen. Then, too, a beautiful but mysterious woman named Kamile (Tamara Feldman) spends the night with Max, after a brief meeting. However, she may or may not be the enemy. Will Max be able to get out of lengthening maze of danger? This film started off rather well but soon became irrelevant. The cast, including West, Burns, and Feldman, is very attractive and talented, yes, to no avail. Nor does it matter that the venues are exotic, the costumes fine or the direction has energy. With a plot that loses sense and a high-tech premise that is not easily understood, the movie is a disappointment. Look for other film ideas, such as the Bourne Identity, which has a similar look and feel.
