Critic Reviews for WarGames: The Dead Code
Keeps the formula topical, replacing Soviet aggressors with cyber-savvy terrorists, but the renovations end there.
casual moviegoers won't get the in-jokes and won't care about the plot.
Audience Reviews for WarGames: The Dead Code
I loved the original Wargames and found this one just as enjoyable. This one rehashes the basic premise of the first movie, but in a new and modern way (such as terrorists) and added some 'Enemy of the State' like surveillance and pursuit scenario. Plot: Philadelphia high-schooler Will Farmer (Matt Lanter) plays a computer game that simulates a terrorist attack, and Ripley, the super government computer with a sexy voice, designed to profile potential terrorists, tracks him down because he beat five levels in 15 minutes, this makes Ripley believe that he is a high level terror threat. Professor Falken and Joshua (WOPR) make reappearance in this movie and I enjoyed the confrontation between Ripley (Alien, anyone) and Joshua. If you like the science-techno-computer-hacker-surveillance type of action movie, be sure to check this one out.
A nice straight to dvd movie. Paid nice homage to the original. This was a sequel and not a remake and did really nothing to diminish the original movie.
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.
