Reviews
Mine: Really, really bad. The thing that is really a killer is that it starts with this pretensous speach about how movies lack realism. Well this is SOOO not realistic. This is the third straight dud for Travolta, he needs a better agent. The computer stuff is just laughable.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A secretive renegade counter-terrorist co-opts the world's greatest hacker (who is trying to stay clean) to steal billions in US Government dirty money.

Shadow's rating:
3.5 Stars
(out of 5 stars)
I liked it. was it great film-making, no. But I liked the twist and turns so that the ending wasn't completely transparent. Another movie not to be taken seriously, just a bit of escapism. Travolta plays all Mega-personalities the same, so u know what to expect from that character (Same Character as the one in 'Battlefield Earth', but without the hair and paws.). I didnt think that Hallee breasts were worth $50k, maybe if she ran a round the pool some, but not just lying there. I liked Hugh Jackman, (again), although i miss the Wolverine doo. Watching actors use computers in movies is always hard when you're a programmer and you know computers dont act that way. So i try to eliminate that part out of the movie remembering that most movies are written for the common denominater of the viewing public. so most people wont get it. Rent or borrow the DVD, get your popcorn and enjoy. if you want realism, turn on the news.

One of the very few talented actors in Hollywood. This is also a good movie. I give it a rating of 4 out of 5 stars. Hollywood judges a good flick by who sleeps with who. Most people out here in the real world like to judge a movie by the acting ability of the actor.
