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 »

Horrible!!!
22 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

Thank God I watched this at a friend's place and did not pay for it. The plot is horribly transparent and the whole movie felt like an episode of a TV show. If you have any knowledge of computers or electronics, watch out. You will feel feel like the movie is an insult to your intelligence.

Also, actress turned Much Music VJ Amanda Walsh displays the worst acting I have ever seen, excluding porn. She's lucky that Matt Lanter is actually decent. He's the one that carries the movie.

I hate that I wasted nearly two hours of my life watching this movie! It's a shame that they got to call it a sequel, because I was a fan of the original, which was actually pretty good.
