Summary: A group of young hackers are framed for attempting to extort
5 million dollars from a large corporation and must use all their skills to clear their
names and catch the bad guy, a rogue hacker working for the company.
A visually interesting movie, but not much more than that. Computer professionals (such

|The hacking graphics were OK, but weren't even CLOSE to reality.
|This cyberpunk look does nothing for me. The female hacker wears too much makeup and

|Those kids definitely need lives! I mean, drooling over a 28.8K modem? Please!!
Overall: not that great. One bright spot: Penn Jillette (of "Penn &
Teller" fame) makes an apperance in this film as a computer security officer.
