Ripley's movie review

It looked great, the effects were cool, and I loved the monitor setup and Travolta's car. I had problems with several things though. For example, I'm supposed to believe that the ‘most dangerous hacker in America’ is built like Jackman? Give me a break. And I don't know much about hacking but some of those scenes looked way off base to me. But, if you can ignore the details and just go with it, it's a fairly entertaining movie. Like I said, it looked amazing.
