Great Movie
7 May 2013 | by philssSee all my reviews

This is a taught sci-fi thriller starring the beautiful Maeve Quinlan and Billy Wirth. This movie preys on our fear of the unknown, in the form of a computer virus that can make the machines designed to heal us, kill us. What a surprise ending also, didn't see it coming. There are some good plot twists and you really feel empathy to the victims of the scheme. It is fantastic to see a movie in which the computers that people use are real, not all just Apple paid commercials, and the use a a Palm Pilot VII was perfect in the setting of a hospital. Billy Wirth is too underrated, he is an excellent actor and was a very believable lead character in this movie. All in all a fun movie with the amazing Maeve Quinlan.
