A young hacker comes across a simulation that simulates a War Game that puts the US military on the tips of their toes. The young man soon finds himself on the verge of causing World War III.
Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy both give good performances and the film’s story is very interesting, if not a little bit aged. I lived the outdoor settings as well as the look of the government facilities. The supporting cast is also pretty good.
It hasn’t aged that greatly, I mean the computers are old and the facial hair looks like it comes straight from a porno or a 70’s action show. This movie is better watched for nostalgia purposes.
Fun Fact: The beginning of the movie has a sign that can be seen, it reads “Anyone urinating in this area will be discharged”.
