Trivia

In the scene where the prison officers are looking at security footage, one mentions "enhancing" the image. The other officer states that he can't add resolution. This is a reference to futuristic police TV shows and movies where they can "zoom in" and "enhance" an image. See more »

Goofs

In both scenes there are windows facing out, clearly showing the time of day. See more »

Quotes

Decimate: I don't go dates. I don't go clubbing. I don't care about celebrity hookups or which sports teams just won. My universe exists entirely within computers.
Decimate: The moment we come up with a way to not have to eat, or sleep or any of the other things required to stay alive... I'll be the first in line.

I somehow came across this gem after stumbling on a youtube posting of Primer, a film that if you have not seen, you really should. GO WATCH PRIMER.

Anyway, Algorithm is a flat, boring one dimensional view into the life of a "hacker". It is a cliché on every level, offering nothing to it's viewer. If I had more time on my hands I would try to hack into Al Gore Ithim, however it's not worth the time. I wish there was a way to get my time back from watching it, let alone my time from warning you from the sheer boredom you will endure. Consider this a PSA.
