Ryan Phillippe (Milo Hoffman), Rachael Leigh Cook (Lisa
Calighan), Claire Forlani (Alice Paulson/Rebecca Paul), Tim Robbins (Gary Winston), Richard Roundtree (Lyle Barton)
Cyber thriller about a young computer ace (Phillippe) who
accepts a job at a top software company and discovers that his boss is using unconventional and illegal methods to corner the marketplace.
Aside from Tim Robbins doing a good job apeing a Bill
Gates-esque software mogul, the acting is rather awful (especially the emotionless performance of Rachael Leigh Cook) and the whole thing is rather forgettable.
