When Nic and Jonah are decrypting the IP address of the person they believe to the hacker named "Nomad", Jonah starts to dictate the IP address 220.127.116.11 to Nic, and start writing it to the wall. But after this scene, this IP address is not written in the wall.
Whilst we hear the full IP address spoken, we never explicitly see it written down in full (camera angle). Also interesting to note, is how he repeats 147. There's nothing to suggest however he actually writes this down in order either as we see the first 3 octets afterwards, but 147 does appears twice on the wall, one of which is circled. See more »
Nic, I offer to help, not because I think you need it, but because I know you don't.

Starts out strong - and then runs off the rails
I actually enjoyed this movie for more than half of it. It had a great atmosphere and pretty good characters. It was kind of a throwback to 70s-style Sci-fi, before everything had to have a lot of action in it. Lawrence Fishburne may not have a lot of range, but what he does, he does well.
Apparently, the makers didn't think today's viewers would settle for that sort of thing, so about three quarters of the way through, it takes an abrupt turn to Stupid Town, and the try to jam every cliché trope we've come to expect from more modern sci fi: implausible escapes, contrived chase scenes, ridiculous shoot-em-ups, and Matrix-style special effects. At that point, logic and continuity are just thrown out the window. Then, when they decided the movie was long enough, they slapped on an ending that may literally have been drawn from a hat of possible options.
It's too bad, because if they'd stuck it out the way it was going, it could have been good.
