Editorial Reviews

After losing his wife in a horrific car accident, Luke Gibson (Academy Award ® Winner Cuba Gooding Jr., Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Jerry Maguire, 1996) wakes up in the hospital to find his once idyllic life on the brink of destruction. Implanted with a lethal microchip and monitored closely by a Hope Industries executive (Val Kilmer), Gibson is plagued by strange visions and haunted by a past he cannot remember. If he wants to survive, his only chance lies with a group of renegade hackers who may be the only ones who know how to stop the dangerous corporation before it's too late. Also starring Michael Ironside (Terminator Salvation).

At the time of this writing, this movie is going for just $5. Given that price, you'd be hard pressed to find a better value for your five dollars in a recent movie production.

The movie has its fair share of mistakes such as the cover not matching what val kilmer actually looks like in the movie, or the rushed ending. All in all, if you like sci-fi movies with a little bit of a prophetic warning about a possible futuristic scenario where corporations overstep their bounds and enter your mind, then you'll enjoy this movie. The value in this movie is thinking about "what if this happend". Who cares if it does or doesn't, the point is to be entertained. That said, given the number of ads in the movie, I wonder if they were able to pay for the production costs with that alone.

Really strange movie idea but was very enjoyable, very on the edge of your seat movie. Cuba Gooding was great as always can take or leave Val Kilmer. Acting from everyone in the movie was great. The co-stars were also very good. I would recommend this movie. It was violent with heads exploding, had a little trouble with that, but it was well written and filmed.

A little predictable. Luke Gibson (Gooding) wakes up from a car accident to find that his memory has been erased and his brain now has an implant that is capable of feeding him advertisements as well as causing tremendous pain. He's being used in an experiment -- the fabulously wealthy Corporation is planning to insert the implants in billions of poor people in exchange for things like health care. However, there are some hackers on his side, and some surprises. The movie never gets really moving, tho. There's not a lot of suspense. It's the pacing -- the directing is kind of slow-pokey, unfortunately, because it's a good performance by Cuba Gooding and also Michael Ironside, as one of the hackers. Val Kilmer is very dorky in this movie, and would someone please tell me why he is pictured on the DVD case with a butch crewcut while in the movie he has a dorky mop?

This movie fails on essentially every level it can fail. The idea is bad. The script is bad. The costumes and hair styles are bad. Even most of the acting is bad. How this ever got a green light is beyond me, particularly given that, though not a tremendously expensive production by any means, the money spent making it is far above what it deserves.

Science Fiction, or in this case Speculative Fiction, has always been a fertile ground for film making. And a lot of guys have figured out how to do it. Even some movies with really wild plots have been able to get the audience to suspend their disbelief. But if a viewer believes any of this they have serious issues.

Here's the scoop. The corporations own the world and one of them, "Hope Industries", figures that normal advertising is no longer effective and cooks a scheme to plant ads directly into someone's brain via a circuit implant. It's still in the test phase so they're working out the bugs. They stage a car accident with Cuba Gooding Jr. to provide the opportunity to implant the chip in him and the plot takes off from there.

He gets help from an outlaw group of rebels intent on bringing Hope Industries to its knees. There are only 4 of them so it's a daunting task to be certain, but they're computer geniuses and can hack and gain all sorts of intel at lightning speeds. And Hope Industries, with it's near limitless resources, seems to have weak spots all over its operations. It's amazing how even low level people in the company, even actors it their commercials, have information pertinent to the company's goings on.

That's as far as I'm going there. Just let it be known that this movie is dumb beyond the meaning of the word. All those involved must have led lives devoid of the movie going experience.

Cuba Gooding is an actor I do appreciate. He carried his role just fine but in the end, I felt like I should've waited until it was $7 at Walmart.

A trifecta: Bad script, bad directing, bad acting. A low budget, low quality production totally lacking in originality. If you really appreciate seeing the worst of the worst -- you're a film critic wannabe or film student seeking some "what not to do" guidance -- take a look. Otherwise, save yourself the pain.

For once, the unanimous slander and dislike for this film is adequately placed and accurate. I watched the whole film and the included documentary, and when it was all done - I wholeheartedly recommend skipping the film and to watch the supplement.

Cuba fills his role of the hero in a not-so-distant future where corporations control "everything". He is given a second chance at living after suffering a brain deadening accident. This new chance is having a chip implanted into his neck that allows him to live again, but with consequences. The bad guys, hilariously led by Val Kilmer (worst hair, worst lines, worst everything for him in years) and the good guys led by Michael Ironside (the only good point here) battle for control of Cuba's brain, coupled with his own fight for his memories. Bad effects and loopy writing make for a weak execution, but I have to give props for them doing the exploding head routine in minute one. All kidding aside, there was really nothing to hold your interest and the sound gets over-saturated in each brain sequence (almost a mix of the Johnny Neumonic and Matrix sounds - but painfully done). The inside-his-head effects are 80s-ish and have a TV look. The picture is decent clarity though and the 5.1 gets utilized often to the outer channels.

The supplement is a 17-minute making of that features interviews and adequate behind the scenes for what the film was. Interesting points included the usage of the now defunct Watchmen street set, Cuba being "moved" by the script, and the enjoyment by everyone in getting to work with Ironside. The documentary does feel like a fluff piece, but in a better way of making a point than the film was in trying to entertain. One star for the film and one for the supplement. Skipper otherwise.
