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 »

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.

A Modern Pandora's box. Or a morality tale, for those who are lacking
9 July 2016 | by alanpginiSee all my reviews

This movie would be slow and boring, for those who don't appreciate the cerebral. However the cerebral is a big part of the story. The movie tries to steer you towards liking their good guy. But what the supposed good guy does and what he is, is not good. I sympathized with his plight, and what happened to his friends by their connection to him. But there my sympathy ends. He knew what he did was wrong, and he did it anyway. I have no empathy for people who's very job is to knowingly and illegally harm others, however removed they might feel they are from it. This movie is Pandora's box all over again, but with a technological modern spin. I give it an 8 of 10. It proves once again, that the best movies are still about story, even if technology is a big part of the story. One of those good low budgeters we all like to see, and very rarely do.
