Movie Info

A brilliant hacker inadvertently sets the wheels of World War III into motion after hacking into a restricted online gaming network and learning of a national defense system designed to identify fledgling terrorist cells in this belated sequel to the popular 1982 thriller. There isn't a system on the planet that Will Farmer (Matt Lanter) can't hack into with a little work, so when he manages to breach the security of a restricted online gaming network known as R.I.P.L.E.Y., he's convinced that

Keeps the formula topical, replacing Soviet aggressors with cyber-savvy terrorists, but the renovations end there.

Audience Reviews for Wargames: The Dead Code

I think my IQ dropped a few points watching this one. Overly complicated story, bad acting, (with the exception of Amanda Walsh, who was decent), not even a scratch on the original. Best avoided.

This is loosely based on the ideas of the original 80's hit . It's set in the modern day as we see a base in Afghanistan get destroyed by a UAV right at the start. The whole "Decontamination" plot & idea are totally unbelievable. The idea of the Nuclear exchange to make RIPLEY realise what RIPLEY's doing won't work is yet another nod back to the original movie. Their cop-out at having RIPLEY repeat Joshua's exact same words form the end of the original movie just goes to show how many original ideas they were unable to come up with. If you want to point fingers for bad & stolen ideas the men to blame are Randall Badat and Rob Kerchner. This is an awful movie and is best avoided.
