Movie Info

An ambitious young computer hacker uncovers classified government documents in a Pentagon database, and discovers the true power of information in director Robert Connelly's biopic exploring the teenage years of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. The year is 1989. Upon acquiring a Commodore 64, 18-year-old computer wiz Julian (Alex Williams) adopts the pseudonym "Mendax", and forms a hacker group known as the International Subversives with two of his best friends. Before long, the group begins gaining access to all manners of sensitive websites. But they operate on a strict code: stealing is prohibited, they are to remain completely invisible, and any information they uncover must be shared with the group. When Julian accesses a Pentagon database containing evidence that the government has deceived the public about a recent military offensive, however, he sees an opportunity to become the voice of truth in the age of deception. Meanwhile, police detective Ken Roberts (Anthony LaPaglia) learns that capturing a talented computer hacker is no simple task. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Underground

This is the wrong summery. It should go: "A group of friends fight for their lives against the lethal and ravenous creatures lurking beneath the Earth's surface. The group finds themselves at the mercy of creatures genetically engineered by the military to be expendable in battle. Though they fought countless battles in Iraq, these friends never knew real fear until they went underground" Didn't love this one. It had a good start and I liked the idea of it, but it just didn't hold me. Just wasn't scary enough, or action-y enough. Just wasn't enough...
