Pretty Bad, 25 August 2006
4/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This movie was pretty bad.

As a thriller, it would've been bad even if the technology were right; Michael Parks is terrible in this -- completely emotionless -- and any sort of sympathy that they try to drum up for him and his ex-girlfriend is completely lost.

From a technological standpoint, this movie requires more than a leap of faith. It requires a lobotomy. Some of the technology, it gets right. Most of it, it gets wrong, wrong, wrong. That bit at the end, the bit with the super-duper signal that deafened the girl and blew up all of the computing hardware, is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen in a movie. Ever. I stopped the film at this point. I can't believe that a technology adviser for a movie would let the scriptwriters get away with this ridiculous junk. Have you ever accidentally turned your headphones all the way up? Did you have a seizure? Did blood leak from your ears while your stereo exploded in your face? Come on.

Anyway, there's a lot more that I could say, but the gist of it is: Not Worth Your Time.
