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>

Underrated
27 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie, for the budget, is a very good movie. It is very underrated despite its poor rating. It does take a while to get into, but once you understand the main premise behind the movie, it is fantastic.

Plus, the girl in the movie (Tamara Feldman) is absolutely gorgeous and needs to be in more movies.

This movie is a better, lower budgeted version of "Limitless" (Bradley Cooper); different variable, same premise. It's the same as comparing "Equilibrium" to "The Matrix". "Equilibrium" has a lower budget, and is a better movie than "The Matrix".

This movie is definitely worth watching, even though the main actors voice is tough to get used to.
