5/10 corny and sloppy
This movie did not live up to the original. It looks like a movie made with all SciFi channel source material. They are plugging Stargate: Worlds pretty hard in it. That is a failed game that they were making and tried to sell pretty hard with Stargate: Universe and apparently this movie as well. Watch it if you are like me and can't turn away from a sequel from a fantastic movie, but be warned, this is not a good movie.
Shameless remake of an 80's classic. As a fan of the original movie I was somewhat hesitant about this sequel but was pleasantly surprised. A fun movie to fill a rainy afternoon.
Some B grade special effects let the movie down and a few stereo typical bad guys that could have been developed a bit further.
Horrible leftist Crapola filled with every leftist boogeyman o' the Evil Government War Machine gone diginuts.
From 'Predators' orbiting over America armed with nuclear weapons to innocent poor old man victims from.Suria who just happen to have a bank account used by his 'crooked brother' hauled off in unregistered black ops-mobiles. This whiny progressive garbage marketing propaganda tripe says it all about the left - they never change:
America: bad, racist, war mongering crazy computer nukes
Iran and North Korea: untouchable by us or world annihilation results.
First, the nukes, drones and weapons aren't authorized by computers, nor are they orbiting overhead waiting for some hacker or paranoid computer to use on us. Sky net is still a fantasy.
Second, crushing the mullahs tiny testicle and stomping Kim the Krazy's shiitehole countries into chunks of scum mixed with smoking rubble is far preferable to those idiots finally figuring out a few ICBM'S and frying Tokyo or Tel Aviv
Yes, librhoids, they really are nuts with nukes, and they will use them or find some Barry the Scumbag traitor in office who will whimper and hand over every demand.
Sorry, but this movie is no more credible than the original and far more ham handed propaganda.
It was truly only worth watching to laugh at how condescending lying obvious the lobby lies were.
Oh noooo! The drones flew from Afghanistan with nukes! You fools have zero clue how they work or their speed and range. Ludicrous.
Bad. Very bad. Bland acting. Bad quotes. Bad plot. A new super computer, with a game that looks like it was designed in the early 1990s despite the movie being made in 2008. The 'programmers' of the new system are old men who don't seem to know jack squat. Background sets that clearly look like paintings. Kids routinely make obvious observations about people to show the audience how smart they supposedly are. Even includes a slow speed chase - the kids outrun cars on foot - in a straight line chase. The original WOPR computer also makes a cameo...to play games and 'teach' the new computer that war is pointless. Same computer quotes are used over and over. Finalizing with the infamous "Strange game. The only way to win is to not play." Ironic, since the only way to win with this movie is to not have watched it.
Wow this was BAD!
All the likability of the characters from the first film is gone, the only returning characters were Falken and Joshua, who were both recast, Falken sounds American now instead of British, the plot is nearly identical to the first movie, the technobabble is off the charts, they somehow outrun a car on foot, cell phones have reception in subway stations, and I could go on but the laundry list of problems with this film is just too long.
My advice: WATCH THE ORIGINAL, NOT THIS SHITTY SEQUEL!
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.
A modern rehash of the first film that leaves out the charm and techo-age feel while having limited trills. The characters are more or less the same as the ones in the first film, and it's nice to have a couple of reoccurring characters. The biggest problem with the film is that it doesn't really make much sense and everything that happens seems odd and silly. It's somewhat entertaining, but it doesn't carry the same impact.
More akin to Eagle Eye than the original WarGames, WG: The Dead Code has some nods to its superior predecessor, including resurrecting WOPR and Joshua, but still falls short and is without any of the original's charm and heart.
Lot of action. Kept moving all the way to the end when it seemed so familiar, like exactly as the orriginal. Liked how the computers had evolved.
