It is just another movie
4 May 2009 | by brucekleungSee all my reviews

I think the movie is less than OK after all. I feel that a lot of the things happen here is very similar to the plot of "Eagle Eyes". The events and how characters react are similar too. This movie is trying to be as successful as the old "Wargames". I think it is either Eagel eyes copying this or the other way around. The plot is not surprising and I could almost guessed all of the things going to happen. It wasn't like I wasted my time though as it still has some interesting values. It is just the way they did it. They could have done it better, really.Anyone agrees? Anyone disagrees? I was little bored by it though.
