Editorial Reviews

The world has gone to Hell, and Hell has sent it back! By 2068, war and ecological assaults have ravaged the Earth's atmosphere; the ozone layer lies in shreds, and continent-sized storms punish the landscape. Camps of survivors fight for whatever scraps of food remain, using anything to survive -- including other humans. Former US soldier Captain John Thomas Garth is hired by former soldier Lapiree to lead a team of mercenaries into the Vincent Estate to retrieve pricless art stored just before the world was left in ruins. Garth and his team find the Vincent Estate has an automated defense system code-named Encrypt. Guided by a holographic Chinese woman named Diana (Vivian Wu), Garth and his team find themselves in a maze of deadly obstacles, including a deadly robot called the Rook, as Diana holds the key that could bring about the destruction of the entire world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Post War Robbery Sci FI! August 3, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Encrypt was not a Hollywood blockbuster. But it's still worth a watch.

The film takes place in a post war setting where the enviorment has been ravaged by bio chimical weapons. The atmosphere has been destroyed due to chemical atmoshpehric warfare. (Not apocolyptic this time) Garth is a former US army captain who lives in a city with a band of survivors. Their exsistence is bleak since food has become scarce. The people of the world have basically come to small bands fighting over what little food is left.

Eventually Garth is approached by a former rival from when the world was still normal. He is brought to a millionaire who collected fine art before the war. He also has a stash of food and medicine that Garth's group could really use including Garth's father. Garth is persuaded to break into the VIncent estate to steal some of the art in exchange for supplies for his group. The only hitch is that a high tech security system is in place and has wiped groups out in the past. Garth was mainly chosen for his ability to think outside the box.

Eventually he and a band of four other highly armed mercenaries make their way to the Mansion. When they get there they meet resistance right away from a robotic guard that can use invisiblity. They make it past the first obstacle and get into the Mansion. Once inside a hologram, Diana, appears to them and speaks to them plainly as if she were a real person. She claims to be in charge of the security system, but is unable to deactivate it do to protocols placed within the system. It's discovered later that she was created from a real person close to Mr. VIncente. She would prefer the thievs to leave instead of continuing on where they are likely to be killed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed December 13, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The usual SyFy made for TV fare. I didn't watch much of it because I'm hearing impaired and all I could do would be watch. I really thought that since The SyFy Channel has such a good track record of providing closed captioning with their broadcasts that a DVD with their name on it would have CC. NOPE! NO CLOSED CAPTIONS!

3.0 out of 5 stars decent effort for low budget attempt November 21, 2010
By jasmine
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I found Encrypt a decent effort considering the obvious low budget nature of the project. The concept of a virtual security system with potentially lethal consequences is interesting especially when it is linked up with a virtual guardian if you will in the form of the lovely Vivian Wu. Most of the sets are well designed and decently decorated, the costumes are ok. The characters are somewhat predicable and cliche but having said that I think the director was able to get a decent performance out of them. In fact the overall direction of the actors and scene coverage was pretty good. The action sequences are also pretty good as well as the cinematography considering the obvious limitations in budget. The show was shot a few years before the digital cinematography revolution and it looks like it may have been shot in 16mm. I would be curious to see how the film makers would have done had they had the chance to shoot digital. The ending is a bit cheesy but the final shot is beautiful. Overall, not a waste of money or time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Encrypt September 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Fast-paced, flat-out action....I loved it. The CGi was worth the movie, especially Diana and the weapons that protected the item they were all after. Boiled down to greed...of course...but well worth watching it.
