At the last minute a cyber-friend arrives to join the battle. The mysterious 'Angel.com' battles the virus and saves the company.

So cool
8 March 2004 | by soulcharmerSee all my reviews

Let's talk about prerequisities first.

If you hate American action flicks, if you don't revel in nerve-wrecking psycho-dramas too badly, if you can appreciate style over substance and if you're into asian cinematography, pick So Close.

Rest assured there's plenty of nonsense in this movie, even cliches from time to time, but there's not enough of it to prevent you from enjoying it. Really, even acting was fine with me. Action is exquisite, girls are lovely, effects are cool, plot is trivialized but sufficient I guess. It was meant to be easy and fun and you know what? It's easy and fun alright.

8/10
