Written by PRESTON STURGES JR what the fuck???
Cyber thriller made for ABC primetime. Mick Garris isn't a bad director, he's a horrible director. This movie is an absolute mess (the special effects aren't even in the top 10 "things wrong with this movie"), and because it's over two hours long, it's impossible to recommend. BUT, if you can hang in there, if you can make it past the one-hour marker... you're in for a treat. Probably best if you can go in blind.
Recommended for anyone who also liked the schlocky The Mangler. Given the Transcendence-level stakes involved in this movie, the character are all confronted with really boring technological hurdles: an escalator! an elevator! a garbage disposal!
Watched this on Freevee, and my adblocker does not block those ads like it does for tubi. Some truly grotesque advertisements on Freevee.
