ATM Games
30 August 2001 | by drosse67See all my reviews

This movie is a poor man's WarGames and isn't that bad, if you have nothing better to watch and you have no expectations. It has local appeal for me as it was filmed in Leesburg and Fairfax, VA. Lee Montgomery was an annoying child actor (in Ben and Burnt Offerings) and in this movie, he's an annoying 20-something actor. Next up: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun with Helen Hunt (another former child actor)....and then into oblivion!
