Good luck making sense of this one.   plays an expert hacker whose former colleagues ask his help to break into the computer database of his former employer, the evil corporation they still work for. While doing this, Bridges is accidentally sucked into the virtual world of the computer, now suddenly finding himself in a program/video game where he must fight for survival against the computer’s Master Control, whose consciousness is threatening to take over the company. The whole plot is pure nonsense, and its explanations of technology could only have passed muster back when computers were not a common household item, but it does have its merits. The photography is positively gorgeous, and the animated effects have aged extremely well and are quite stunning even today.
