Genre: Science-fiction/Drama/Thriller

Starring: Matt Lanter, Amanda Walsh, Chuck Shamata, Nicholas Wright

Will Farmer (Lanter) is a computer super-genius, who was simply trying to help his Arabic neighbour by fixing his computer. He stumbles across his neighbours online bank account, which he manages to hack in and discovers thousands of dollars saved in it. His friend Dennis (Wright) persuades him to take some money and gamble it on an online game known as Wargames. Wargames is actually a game run by the US Government. The governments new super computer known as Ripley, believes that if any person can cross level 5 in Wargames, he/she has the necessary intelligence and traits to become a future terrorist and hence should be eliminated. The logic is obviously flawed, but the federal officers don't yet realise it. A wild goose chase begins with officers chasing Will, and ends up involving Annie (Walsh) Will's secret crush and takes the duo to Montreal, Canada. Ripley starts acting irrationally and the government soon realises she herself is a threat to the national security and has to be shut down, something she isn't programmed to do. The movie starts on very shaky grounds but steadily picks up pace. The final climax scene is thrilling, but that is the only piece of excitement the movie can conjure. It seems the movie has been in the making for a bit too many years and by gods grace was put together and made ready for release. The computers voiceovers are terribly annoying, especially Joshua.

Thumbs up: Thrilling climax
Thumbs down: Lousy everything else

Rating: 5.7/10
