While Milo makes the "wrong" choice, it propels him into the storyline of this movie. Slowly we see that Robbins would put a James Bond villain to shame. Eventually, Milo figures that out, too. Don't worry about being too slow to pick up what's going on, the major plot is spelled out so that even the most clueless jock can keep track.
Some interesting cinematic devices are used (notice the digital art during a climactic sequence) and the actors compel us to take part in the story. Plenty of clues forshadow important plot elements, so viewers may feel smarter than they really are as they predict what will happen next. For the real propellor heads, actual HTML & BASH codes are used. Massive Attack's "Angel" fits perfectly into a key dramatic moment.
How much longer can Tim Robbins go on playing charismatic psychopaths without getting typecast?
Four stars for plot, four stars for revealing the plot, four stars for acting. Overall, a great Friday night entertainment flick. Won't win any awards, but who cares? It's fun.
"You're a one or a zero, alive or dead." In the binary computer world of business, Gary Winston (Robbins) is trying to capitalize on other's inventions and knowledge, as well as their time, money, and careers, to further his profits and control within and without his company NURV. Robbins does a fine job with his part, and looks the part as well (Similar look in the film to Bill Gates, as intended.) The story is played out in a pleasing way, and grabs your attention after the introductory period, about 25 minutes long, and goes until the last minute or so. The story is real to life, and the actors try (and fail at points) to fully ingage their interest and full ability into their roles. Peter Howitt did a great job in deciding which scenes to keep and which to discard from the theatrical version, as seen in the commentary on the DVD. The use of directors from James Bond films, and The Matrix helped the aesthetics of the film as well.
Overall, it is a good film that can be seen again, and is worth your time.Read more ›
The themes throughout the movie speak about important topics such as using talents for good instead of just working for material purposes and other ethical questions. I found the storyline about how computer information should be made readily available to everyone instead of a tool for monopolistic individuals (Bill Gates, definitely!) quite intriguing I do not really believe any of the events that took place could actually happen, but the object of must stories in books or movies is to create a fictional setting and have compelling characters, creative storytelling, etc. unless the events are based on actual events. I would compare this movie to WESTWORLD where the technological advances are beyond present day capabilities, but most aspects of present day society are similar to those of the late twentieth century/ early twenty-first century. I found the movie suspenseful and couldn't stop watching it until I got to the end. I cannot give the same approval to the majority of movies being made now.
