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.

Avoid (Even if you're curious)
29 February 2016 | by komradekontrollSee all my reviews

I discovered this "gem" late one night on youtube and thought I'd give it a try. I'm a fan of hacker related movies, so I thought that there could be something here...

Well from the very first frame I realized this was just going to be a waste of time. I'm not even sure where to start. The acting, the direction, the boring characters and story... I mean I thought Insecurity (2007) had a number of issues, but at least it was enjoyable.

Any argument I've seen for why this movie is good is laughable. "It's not a movie, IT'S A WAY OF LIFE!" K bud..

I could pick it apart piece-by-piece, but trust me when I say this is a waste of time.
