Clearly has potential. But a weak plot, and a limited budget hampers it terribly.

|Credit, IMDb| After a tragic accident claims the lives of Luke Gibson's (Gooding Jr.) wife and unborn child, he is left with critical injuries and complete amnesia. A new technological breakthrough from the Hexx Corporation - a Psi-Comp Implant that's hardwired into Luke's brain - saves his life, but Luke soon finds out that this new technology comes with a price and that the Hexx Corporation harbors sinister plans for the new device. With the help of new allies, Luke tries to recover the memories of his past while uncovering the Hexx Corporation's true motives.

While watching Hardwired, I couldn't help but think this had so much wasted potential. I'm somewhat a sucker for Sci-Fi type movies, with plots like these. If done right, I find them fascinating. Hard Wired's problem is the budget doesn't cover it enough to meet this potential. Hard Wired's 1st half is especially much better than the 2nd. I was really intrigued by the happenings, and what Cuba's character was finding out. However the 2nd half becomes dull, and largely interesting for the most part. With a rather weak ending in my opinion. Val Kilmer is barely in the film, and seems to be only interested in a paycheck.

Performances. Cuba Gooding is rather solid here for the most part. I was rooting for him throughout the 1st half, and he did his best to cover the sloppy ground he had to cover during the 2nd half. Val Kilmer is hammy, and doesn't give much of a performance. Michael Ironside's character is interesting, and I enjoyed his work.

Bottom line. I actually enjoyed this to an extent, but the 2nd half really ruins things. For a low-budget film, it's not that bad though. And you could do much worse for a DTV film starring Cuba, believe me.

4 1/2 /10
