I just watched this movie last night for the 2nd time (my gf hadn't seen it before) and I just wanted to recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it. Anyone that likes video games will thoroughly enjoy this movie. It is directed by David Cronenberg (Naked Lunch, A History of Violence, Friday the 13th) and features Jude Law and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

The movie was kind of overlooked, unfortunately, because it was released very close to when the Matrix came out, so Matrix won all the hype. In some ways it's better than the Matrix, and in other ways it's not. So definitely go out and watch it, you'll be doing yourself a huge favor!

I don't want to give too much away because it ruins the movie. There is a pretty good synopsis if you follow the link I provided.

I'll second the recommendation. I haven't seen this movie since it was first available on DVD, but I really enjoyed it. I made a point to recommend it to everyone who said they enjoyed The Matrix, which was just about everybody back in 1999.

So it's 10 years old? That's going to make it hard to find.

C'mon...2 years? :roll:

Just was meant to say, I won't be able to find this at my rental places because they recycle (after 3-4 years) and that it probably won't be at any retail stores either. Maybe I can catch it cheap on Ebay but I would rather rent to see how it is.

Sorry, not remotely what I meant. I meant that it has only been 8 years since 1999, so it is 10 years old only if you live 2 years in the future.

I first rented it at my local blockbuster in their Sci-fi section, so you may have the same luck. There's always downloading... :roll:

It's pretty good. I've seen better movies, but this has a solid plot and decent acting.
