The Net (1995)

the_net_original_film_art_1_spo_2000x

A computer programmer stumbles upon a conspiracy, putting her life and the lives of those around her in great danger. (IMDb)
The computer/internet motif throughout is obviously pretty dated and corny but it provides decent enough stolen identity thrills (see Angela’s return home). The pacing’s still pretty slow though, and both the dramatic and comedic dialogue are unremarkable, letting down otherwise smart characterization (Angela’s isolation worsened her later plight) and solid direction (the soundtrack is effective, as are the news reports subtly coming in and out of the narrative, adding notes of intrigue).
6/10 (Mediocre)
