A hacker is scanned into his former employer’s computer network; a parallel world awaits. Odd SF/fantasy mashing up evil tech corps and voguish videogames. Simplistic and weird, with some still-stunning design and a cool mix of early CG, traditional animation, and David Warner doing his best. A sequel followed in 2010.
A programmer ends up trapped inside an arcade game world. Visually impressive, with some pioneering CGI, the film struggles everywhere else with a limp story and a script written in techno babble.
