"...It is handsome throughout, the integration of live actors with the virtual sets seamless..."
This effects-laden sequel finds a madman at the helm of an about-to-be-launched virtual-reality network which he hopes to use to control the world. A ragtag band of hackers must prevent his Global Interlink to foil his nefarious plans.
The sequel to the 1992 hit movie. At the end of that film, Jobe, the computer-enhanced genius, was presumed dead. But he is brought back to life by Jonathan Walker, a nefarious businessman, who wants Jobe to create a special computer chip. This chip would connect all the computers in the world into one network, which Walker would control and use for evil purposes.
What Walker doesn't know is that a group of plucky teenage hackers are on to him, and out to stop his plan. But perhaps the kids should concentrate on Jobe, who is developing his own vile scheme to take over the world.
