[shoves Angela over]
Get away from the computer. What did think you were trying to do? Save the world?
No. Not the world. Just myself.
Ah, I'm afraid it's too late for that. The offer's been withdrawn.
Um, you might wanna look at the screen, because everything on that disk was just sent to the FBI. Everything.
So... proof that the Gatekeeper program has a back door.

Cyber-thriller has a few internal glitches, but it keeps on running.
This isn't a bad movie thriller to keep you off the Internet for two hours, but can you take the risk? THE NET sounds unconvincing since our love of computers and cyber-sputting expresses what the story is all about, and a possible fad to recognize. Thankfully, it does attempt to bring some raw suspense that is head-and-shoulders above other lame films that contend to "artificial communication". Once again, Sandra Bullock knows how to keep her fans happy, and even though it's no "chick-flick", she's still the likeable character inside. This time, she's stalked in a game of cat-and-mouse and becomes ruined by an identity crisis. Even with the brand new concept of cyberware, that's just normal for a suspense thriller. An old, traditional "chase" plot gives the movie a blip on the screen, but the story is greatly paced and exciting enough to increase your pulse rate to rapid highs. The computer mess is the biggest fuss some viewers will have in common, including all those not used to this new style. A good shot at a modernization of mystery-suspense films, but you know exactly what to predict here. Why the new TV series?
