While there's suspense aplenty as she pits her computer skills and some old-fashioned ingenuity against the villains, Irwin Winkler's thriller is at best perfunctory in its treatment of character.

The acting was terrible, but for 115 minutes I was entertained.

Sandra Bullock is lucky to have a career after this...
September 16, 2020
Bullock makes for a sympathetic, spunky protagonist, who is fun to watch even if the plot takes a turn toward the realm of overly predictable thrillers.

'90s mystery-thriller is still relevant; violence, language.
January 14, 2011
Director Irwin Winkler is as graceless as ever, although the gritty look and refreshingly low-tech action sequences are welcome.

Technophiles will find certain aspects of the plot less than plausible but a big budget, Bullock and a tense finale ensure Winkler dials up a daft but enjoyable diversion.

A thriller without thrills.
March 26, 2009

Silly techno-espionage chase-thriller copycat. Bullock's miscast, but does what she can.
March 23, 2005
One of Bullock's best - has as much byte as it does bang

The Net is never quite as sleek and chilling as it might have been, but it gives the old story of a wrongly accused innocent a nerve-wracking 90's twist.
