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

Quotes

Linda Ferillo: [after CAS stops the elevator abruptly and is unable to make it go down with her access card] That's strange. The elevator is suppose to go straight to the bottom if there's a problem.
Tony Minot: [dryly] You know Linda? Your faith in this building would be very touching... if it weren't so damned dangerous.

Ok plot, but one stupid scene after another
24 May 2002 | by jelleoelleSee all my reviews

This is a movie where you constantly will be commenting about how stupid and unrealistic one scene after another is. It could have been a good movie, but it just gets too enoying, because you keep seing a computer doing the most stupid things, that no computer would, and people do things that doesn't make sence. They seem to have programmed the computer to kill intruders and vandalists!!! Watch it with friends so you can have a laugh at it.
