Premiering at the 2000 New York Independent Film and Video Festival, this low-budget thriller involves a software company's attempts to create the perfect anti-piracy code -- one that ends up coming under suspicion from the U.S. government, in large part because an Israeli programmer helped them devise the technology. Maria Conchita Alonso and David Warner co-star. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
... but the photography was good ;-) This is not a movie that will dazzle you with sci-fi, though it claims to be about progamming and cryptography. It throws mysticism into the plot, but that's a red herring too. I finally figured out the genre, it's just a re-hashed conspiracy story: Bad Government Agents out to surpress secrets that could free people. In the end, our shallow, philandering "hero" kills the bad guys and sails off into the sunset in a stolen boat, with the woman who set him up, forgetting his recently dead wife and child, his friend chained to a tree, and the giant think tank that developed the "code" that contains predictions of future events embedded in the bible. It rips off every hot topic they could fit in and proves you can get ahead by using everyone you meet. Bleh! Not for the serious sci-fi fan, maybe OK for the younger set.
