The Net 2.0 (review)

When I was a little kid I loved The Net, the TV series. Watching Angela Bennett running away from The Praetorians made my day. Oh, and now I know where did I know Eric Szmanda from! Then I saw the movie featuring Sandra Bullock (that was released 2 years before the series) and I really wished it was Brooke Langton playing Angela. But the storyline was really awesome.

Yesterday I saw The Net 2.0 I was so disappointed! It was just a repetition of the first movie with another character, set and a few details changed. It really sucked! And there was not the context of the first movie: The “Big Brother” fear America was feeling (BTW, I am reading 1984 now!). You can guess pretty much what’s happening next, and the story makes no sense. Oh, and for a geeky movie, the most awesome things were an ugly pocketpc, a tablecpc and a stupid holographicish sphere screen.

I really hope the next movies of this genre I will see ( The Pirates of Silicon Valley and Hackers ) do really worth it.
