Consensus: Due to its use of cliched and ludicrous plot devices, this thriller is more predictable than suspenseful. Also, the acting is bad.

Got a by-the-numbers plot? A premise that's intriguing but also has holes in it? Dialogue that needs punching up? Hire Tim Robbins. He can save just about anything.

This wannabe thriller about the new techno industry is a misfire.

My, my, such a high-tech setting -- too bad it's marred by such a low-tech plot.

Rolling Stone

There's not an original note in Howard Franklin's screenplay or Peter Howitt's direction.

Roger Moore
Orlando Sentinel

A vast improvement over earlier attempts at this growing genre.

RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)

It won't win any Oscars but it might make 14-year-olds wonder whether it's really worth spending life in front of a screen.
