What to know

critics consensus

Due to its use of cliched and ludicrous plot devices, this thriller is more predictable than suspenseful. Also, the acting is bad. Read critic reviews

    Milo: This isn't a game! In the real world, when you kill people they die - for real! And in the real world you're fucked! Gary Winston: It's just a matter of time before someone borrows your technology, improves it and makes a billion dollars on it. Ryan Phillipe (Cruel Intentions) stars as a computer wizard Milo who catches the eye of Gary Winston (Tim Robbins), a kind of seedier version of Bill Gates, whose company is on the verge of achieving a quantum leap forward in the realm of global communications. Their `Synapse' satellite system, once operational, will make global communications through any medium a reality and Milo just so happens to be one of maybe twenty programmers in the world who can accomplish the task before the targeted date set by Winston to launch Synapse. But Milo is not so much of a nerd that he would fail to notice his new boss is even resorting to murder in order to keep his project up and running. Director Peter Howitt manages to create quite a bit of tension as Milo slowly realises that no-one can be trusted, and everything ties up nicely in a well paced and exciting ending. <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=2e1viq0" target="_blank"><img src="http://i54.tinypic.com/2e1viq0.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=idslf7" target="_blank"><img src="http://i55.tinypic.com/idslf7.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=30w7ach" target="_blank"><img src="http://i54.tinypic.com/30w7ach.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a> <a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=eiw12o" target="_blank"><img src="http://i53.tinypic.com/eiw12o.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic"></a>

    This was and still is the one movie that inspires me to get my degree (sad isn't it?). I also thought this was one of the more realistic movies based on computers and programming. The similarities between the events in this film and both Microsoft and Apple are also easy to see. The plot is pretty basic and would never happen in real life but the real attraction, for me, was showing how a giant software corporation works and what they get up to. It features a good case, Tim Robbins steals the show and definitely looks like Bill Gates and this is one film that I can simply watch again and again.

    Kind of an underrated film! I watched this in theaters when it first came out and just recently saw it again on cable and it is still really good.
