Entertainment Reviews:

Premiere - 01/01/1996
"...Bullock delivers a compelling and subtle performance..."
USA Today - 07/28/1995
"...With admirable techno-savvy, the film upgrades the paranoia-propelled thriller and downloads it into the '90s..."
Entertainment Weekly - 08/11/1995
"...You can imagine Hitchcock having paranoid fun with this idea....[Bullock's] concentration is so compelling..." -- Rating: B
Variety - 07/24/1995
"...The suspense is neatly achieved....Bullock again provides highly accessible, viewer-friendly entry to a story..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 07/28/1995
"...[Bullock is] very low-key. She's so natural she seems to be remembering a scene rather than playing it. She has a warm smile. She never overacts..."

Product Description:

Angela Bennett (Sandra Bullock) is a beautiful but reclusive computer systems analyst who enjoys her lonely nights surfing the net and entering chat lines. When a friend sends her a disk infected with a curious bug, she is caught up in an internet nightmare when she tries out the new program. The "beta" program gains her access to some of the world's most sensitive databases, but her friend turns up dead and she discovers that her identity has been erased and she has been given a new one which proves her to be a criminal. She must then set out to find who is behind the nefarious plot. Director Irwin Winkler produced such film classics as ROCKY and GOODFELLAS.

Plot Synopsis:

When computer programmer Angela Bennett boots up some new software, she gets more than she expected -- she gets access to restricted government files. Very soon after, the colleague who had sent her the new program dies in a plane crash. The panicked Angela nevertheless decides to continue as planned and go on vacation to Mexico, where she meets a handsome computer hacker. But her "romantic conquest" cares only about her disc with the top-secret information. By the time Angela discovers his duplicity, and realizes she's in danger, it's too late: her visa is gone, her name and address and credit cards are wiped off the computer, and she's wanted for a number of violent crimes. In fact, as far as the net goes, she doesn't exist at all. Now, Angela must assume another person's name and past if she's ever going to get home and prove her true identity.
