Goofs

The hotel computer displays the message "ESTE HUESPED HA SALIDA" under "THIS GUEST HAS CHECKED OUT". There is both a spelling mistake, the correct Spanish being "ESTE HUESPED HA SALIDO", and a grammatical error: this would translate to "this guest has gone out". The correct translation should be "este huesped se ha ido". See more »

Cyber-thriller has a few internal glitches, but it keeps on running.
17 February 1999 | by emmSee all my reviews

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?
