If you're suffering from a severe case of Comic-Con FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), fear not! IMDb has got you covered with Kevin Smith aboard the #IMDboat! Watch all of our coverage of the big event at IMDb.com/comic-con.
8 of 10. A dystopia setup for young, attractive, anti-system hackers to attempt to overcome. A virtual reality sci-fi set in space on a spaceship that needs, fittingly, debugging. The debugging, to add a further twist, is being done by hackers convicted as criminals who are serving there sentences as a combination of community service and separation/imprisonment from the rest of civilization.
Space science fiction is essentially a virtual experience at this point, so combining it with computers, hacking, and virtual reality makes it more immersive and you have to wonder whether the characters are real or virtual. Throw in some criminals and an out of control bio-AI that's been setup by the military, and you have the horror element.
This isn't a Star Trek space fantasy sci-fi, an alien fantasy, or a time travel fable. One of the missing elements is why there are ships in space at all, what purpose if any they're serving society. That's left to the imagination, but the ending has a smooth, unforced sequel setup for filling in more of the future it happens in.
