The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Cast: Jason Momoa, Jeananne Goossen, Adrian Holmes
In this tale of deep space cyberhorror, six young computer hackers are sent to work on a derelict space freighter as a part of a work release program. They quickly fall prey to the ship’s vengeful artificial intelligence, a program that would kill to be human. They are helpless to defend themselves as it silently roots out their deepest desires to use against them in the most imaginative and horrific ways. It takes a very determined and brilliant hacker, Kaida (Goossen), to battle this malevolent entity and send it back to cyber hell.
I am not going to go into any major plot details here, the above synopsis is about all you need to know before watching this little Sci-fi flick. What I will talk about is the film itself. To be honest I was not expecting a lot before I sat down to watch it but I was hoping for a decent little science fiction film and that is exactly what I got.
What you have is seven main characters, six of which are prisoners sent to do a system clean up on a space ship using their hacking talents. The another man on the ship is there to make sure they do what they are supposed to do and nothing more. Each of the six hackers bring their own baggage and the story does a pretty good job fleshing out the characters so you can have some sort of feelings for them.
The story is not the most complex ever but I liked it and I enjoyed the twists that are presented as the story moves along. The film also has a few nice kills along the way and the effects used are not great but they are good enough to get the job done. "Debug" is an above average Sci-fi film that kept me entertained all the way to the end. I even enjoyed the twist at the end.
Director, David Hewlett did a good job over-all while working on a limited budget. Luckily the effects were only used to enhance the story and not be it. I definitely recommend seeing this to all fans of science fiction, do not expect a lot and you will be as surprised as I was.
