        Jobe, a mentally challenged gardener, has been transformed into a brilliant, computerized megalomaniac by a series of virtual reality experiments. Though destroyed, Jobe finds a way to return to digital life, and he sets out in search of an important computer chip that will grant him frightening levels of power. A group of young hackers, led by Peter, discovers this nefarious scheme and turns to retired virtual reality pioneer Ben Trace for help. Chase scenes and gunfights follow, both in the virtual world and the real world, as Trace and the boys try to figure out how to defeat Jobe.

The original film is awful and so is this obnoxious sequel, which scores points for improving ever so slightly on its predecessor but loses them again for being so devoid of potential that even Jeff Fahey said no thanks - and look at some of the rubbish he's made. (How great was he in 'Lost', though?)

Matt Frewer replaces him as the computer-enhanced genius who's now floating around in cyberspace with a desire to take over the real world. Trying to stop him are Austin O'Brien, forgotten child actor returning from the first movie, and Patrick Bergin, whose career's seen better days. With a trashy script, a story which barely fills the eighty-five minute running time and performances which rarely rise above the level of shite, the movie's left with nothing to wow you bar its beloved VR segments, and they're nothing special.

The plot jumps ahead of itself so often it soon becomes clear that huge chunks of the movie have been hacked out, so there's something to be thankful for.
