John Wood was sick when this movie was filmed so he was unable to reprise his role as Dr. Stephen Fallen. That honor went to Gary Reineke instead and the voice of the "WarGames" computer, "Joshua", which also appears in this film (John Wood voiced it in "WarGames), is noe voiced by Colm Feore who also plays T. Kenneth Hassert in this film. See more »
The coordinates given in the tracking camera shots of 45°28' N, 73°45' W put them, not in town at all, but in the westbound lanes of Avenue Cardinal just east of Boulevard Albert de Niverville, at the exit of the parking lots for Aeroport International Trudeau. See more »
Like many others have commented before me here, I have to say that this movie is bad, but not the worst I've seen. There will be no direct references to movie plots or sequences in this comment, because I hate spoilers.
I got a feeling I was watching an episode of a TV show or something, where they had gotten a hold of some extra $$$ to spend on CGI (I've seen worse of those)... All in all, it is quite an insult to the viewer, at least if you have ANY knowledge about computers and/or technology at all. There are just too many of these moments of insults to make me feel comfortable, and I found myself just begging for it all to end - fast - halfway through. In addition, there are countless "easy way out" scenarios, which also is an insult to your intelligence as a thinking human being...
This movie absolutely fades in comparison to the old "Wargames", and I think it's a damn shame they even got to call it a sequel.
Two stars from me, because of one thing and one thing only: the actors' performances aren't half-bad, considering the regurgitated crap of a script they had to work with. Still, they should never have signed on to this movie. Not really a career-move, but I guess we all have bills to pay.
To those of you who gave this movie top score...you have to be on the studio's payroll or something, that's my only explanation.
To all who haven't seen this one: by all means, watch it and make up your own mind. But lower your expectations to the floor (and then some).
