Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Sandra Bullock's star charisma raises this mediocre computer-age paranoia fantasy to the level of watchable entertainment. The Speed heroine plays a lonely hacker who uncovers a criminal conspiracy, but how she copes with the threat of cyberspace annihilation from an unknown assassin turns an already slow-moving thriller into a predictable game of hide-and-seek that relies on major lapses in logic and coincidence for a happy ending. The neat electronic visuals can't hide the contrived and confusing direction by Irwin Winkler.
