Storyline

Before Tony can get to work on the first day of his new job, he manages to lock himself out of his appartment. To get back in he uses the his new security pass, which resembles a credit card. The card becomes damaged when it is used to open his front door, and then causes mayhem at work when the main computer fails to identify Tony as the new employee. The high-tech building is run by computer, which interprets its programming as meaning; "destroy all threats". The BUILDING is out to get Tony. Written by Rob Hartill

This is a remake
21 July 2005 | by marvinwright2000See all my reviews

I saw another version of this movie about 8 years before this one was released. There was a computer named Lola that was absorbing human energy and trapped a bunch of people inside a building. The newer version 1994 differed greatly from the original but the same theme was used. I like movies where computers take over some of my favorites are Demon Seed and Colusus the Forbin Project. I think one day computers will be smarter than humans possibly in our lifetime. I mean in my fathers day going to the moon was science fiction but today its an every day occurrence, these movies show the dangers of science and technologies continual progress and are to be noted.
