Although the rise in technological literacy has yielded slightly better entertainment e. And while the Internet is a known quantity these days and filmmakers have to dive into its more unknown aspects like the Deep Web in order to tantalize viewers, in , it was still relatively new to most people. We calmly accept that everything is computerized because it must be, and what we risk in security is deemed ultimately worth the convenience provided.

Angela goes on the run, but discovers her entire life has been digitally rewritten. Today, we know what identity theft is. What The Net does convincingly is that it provides constant reminders of how fragile every system is when we completely rely on computers. Bennett must now try and find help to recover her life, evade Devlin, and uncover the truth on the disk.

This idea was quite new at the time but director Irwin Winkler really tapped into the public's interest by utilising the newfangled internet contraption. The internet wasn't unheard of at the time of course, but it was intriguing to the masses and was used a lot to present an exciting new angle to movies.

It was almost like an unexplored universe and Hollywood wasn't gonna let it slip by without milking its every potential. The other main draw for this movie was actress Sandra Bullock who was literally the biggest thing in Hollywood between - She was America's sweetheart with her adorable, girl next door looks and squeaky clean image. People just went to movies starring Bullock, no questions asked, she was huge. This movie also used the highly unpopular nerd image which was still something to mock at the time. Nowadays nerds are all the rage but back in the day oh no, being a nerd was not cool.

But what baffled people even more was the introduction to a sexy female nerd, this was virtually unheard of at the time. This did present a problem for the movie simply because no one believed a sexy female could be a whizz-kid on computers or a nerd.

Especially Bullock who was Hollywood's new darling leading lady. And admittedly it is hard to believe Bullock in this role because she simply doesn't look like she understands what shes talking about half the time. She also looks surprisingly unathletic considering her previous action movies, she kinda sleepwalks through this looking bored. Looking back now this movie is fun simply to see all the retro hardware and early programs in action. All these chunky laptops, very basic net page layouts, disk swapping and loading etc The action is kinda sparse but reasonably thrilling I suppose, it was never gonna be a violent movie with Bullock in the lead.

So the movie cuts away for any violence and there is little profanity, if any. Jeremy Northam is easily the best thing about the film with his devilishly charming contract killer, probably why his character is called Devlin. In the end this is a very safe and harmless action thriller that didn't want to rock the boat for its leading lady. Bullock is still cute and cuddly while under the stress of being hunted down by a hitman.

So naturally the tense unrealistic finale is shot there. I'm just gonna assume that the trade show would have had the best of the best computers on show so that made it possible. Its all very silly, cutesy and charming these days, so amusing to think this was a big serious release back in the day.

Sandra Bullock stars as a computer geek who unwittingly stumbles onto some vague internet conspiracy " we know everything about you so now we control your life, nya-ha-ha! I love Sandra Bullocks work she's an amazing actress! Good actors but disappointing plot.
