Ian Douglas: On the good side, the film kicks off with a truly remarkable slo-mo explosion which sets a new benchmark for pyrotechnics in movies. On the down side, the computer-related scenes are mostly laughable, Hollywood does Not Have a Clue about how computers and computer viruses or worms actually work. Other than that, and Berry's famously-exposed breasts, it is a pretty standard action thriller. The tense moments are spoilt by the holes in the plot.

Andreas Lupp (20): This film is not a crowd pleaser in that in the end...I will not give it away. Its feel is very suave and although many might argue that its technical (computer) are a little off one has to remember that computer viruses are not interesting exept to a few computer geeks. The films look and point are very clear and streamlined and that make this film a rather enjoyable experience.Not for people that look for errors but for people who want to enjoy.
