Johnny Depp stars as a controversial computer genius who is assassinated by anti-tech radicals just as he's on the verge of constructing a sentient machine. Before dying, however, he goes the full "Max Headroom," downloading his consciousness into a computer. Naturally he uses that as an excuse to go a little power-mad and tries to take over the world. The film is strikingly shot (by Christopher Nolan's cinematographer-turned-director Wally Pfister), but the story and its moral are quite muddled. 119 minutes PG-13.
