Max Peterson is a globe-trotting techno-whiz who installs security systems on computers. He receives an anonymous gift: a phone which sends messages that enable him to win at a casino. Max soon finds himself pursed by hit men, the casino's security chief, and a CIA operative. Who's sending Max messages? Previous recipients of similar windfalls have ended up dead. After a couple of close scrapes, Max realizes he's in danger, so he tries to find out the root of the conspiracy - which seems to have access to every security camera in the world - before he's the next victim. Why is this happening to him, and who can he trust?Written by

Okay, now your servers are down because of a power surge, a grid malfunction, or maybe even a bomb. Now, if the intruder tries to reboot your servers or access the data, he'll always hit this screen.

Ugh...so many clichés and such bad directing, it's classic. Bad despite itself.
Echelon Conspiracy (2009)
Wow, this is an exercise in how to make a movie look good and not be good. It seems on the surface to have all these flashy elements, visual and plotwise (conspiracies, snipers, computers with minds of their own, you know the routine). But it's so crappy, to use a sophisticated word, it's painful. It's just badly directed. Yes, the script is lame, yes, the acting is lame. But the direction makes the least of even these elements.
Why watch it? Why write a review? It's odd, really, that it can look so good and stumble so badly. If you watch the first minute, you'll be sucked in. If you watch five minutes, you'll see already how clumsy it is.
Too bad. Some nice stuff in the wings here.
