Audience Reviews for WarGames: The Dead Code

  • Aug 31, 2015
    In this unnecessary sequel, a teenager accidentally went into national defence system and triggered a potential third world war. No sympathy for any of the characters, the acting was terrible plus the script was badly written filled with campy dialogues. Wargames: The Dead Code is bound to leave you disappointed.

    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.

    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 <i>RIPLEY</i> realise what <i>RIPLEY</i>'s doing won't work is yet another nod back to the original movie. Their cop-out at having <i>RIPLEY</i> repeat <i>Joshua</i>'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 <i>Randall Badat</i> and <i>Rob Kerchner</i>. This is an awful movie and is best avoided.
