The movie makes one think of how this era of computer control in ones life could eventuate, and make's it quite frightening to even think it could very well happen in the near future (if it not already in place).
Angela Bennett (Sandra Bullock) is a computer expert and works alone in a computer room. Visiting her unmindful mother (Diane Baker) is her only other activity. Dale Hessman (Ray McKinnon), whom she has only spoken to over the net and phone, sends her a floppy disk program with a weird glitch for debugging. One night, he leaves to meet her and is killed in a plane crash. Angela discovers secret information on the disk before she leaves for vacation where she meets a handsome young man, Jack Devlin (Jeremy Northam). He is contracted to kill her and get the disk she has. Her life then turns into a nightmare, her computer records are erased from existence and she is given a new identity, one with a police record. She struggles but succeeds in tracking down a conspiracy to manipulate personal identities kept on computers. The DVD is in excellent Technicolor and the film is full of suspense, twists and turns. I particularly liked Sandra Bullock good looks, her ability of fast clicking the computer keyboard and the scene of Angela playing Chopin on the piano with her mother.
I think this is a great movie- especially for the time it was made-- I really enjoyed the audio commentaries as well.. esp by the writers- it is rare to get an audiocommentary by writers.
Should have had different title, but not a bad film
Very enjoyable movie - and Sandra Bullock does a great job. Don't bother with the Net 2 though with some unknown stilted actress. This one certainly makes for good watching though.
sandra bullock is hot in the techno flick that will have all net users on the edge of their seats
Plausible story, especially for when the movie was made. Plus, anything with Sandra Bullock in a bikini has got to be good!
Great computer thriller, gets you in.
