3.0 out of 5 stars A very average thriller
So Sandra Bullock is such a computer geek that no one knows who she really is? If you can swallow that premise then you may be able to enjoy this standard offering from producer irwin Winkler. To be honest the premise of the young woman who has her identity wiped and has to go on the run is fine, if slightly implausible; the overall effect is just not that exciting...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, Aug. 15 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Net (Bilingual) (DVD)
Hi, OK so the writers don't really know much about computers but they do know how to write a great script. Snadra Bullock did a great job as Angela Bennet. Many poeple say "This is just another chase movie like the rest" When it isn't. Sure some parts do remind you of "The Fugitive" but this movie with just different. I really liked the plot, it was very original. If you're a computer expert a few things in this movie might bug you knowing they are unrealistic but hey IT'S JUST MOVIE. Some people take movie to seriously which is a mistake you should just sit down with your bowl of popcorn and know it's just a movie. When it comes down to it this is a great movie that you must see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun&Charming!, May 11 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Net, the (VHS Tape)
'The Net' is really a fantastic movie, and Sandra Bullock is really great in the lead, as a computer analyst who gets ahold of information the bad guys don't want her to have! She fights for her life, as well as for everyone else, and she fights for her sanity, too. Jeremy Northam makes a really suave bad guy. There's a lot of action, and Bullock does some pretty impressive stunts. See this film!

By 
This review is from: Net, the (VHS Tape)
Sultry Sandra Bullock plays Angela Bennett, a reclusive computer software analyst finds herself running for her life.When a friend sends a program to debug, "Beethoven's Ghost" band program turns her onto the illegal world of the Ptorians, an illegal band of people that get what they want at the expense of no one, even her. They wind up stealing Angela's identity and replacing her's with the one of a Sarah Miller, a drug addict well known by the police. Things heat up as she gets closer to getting her life back. A MUST see for today's generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Net is A Cyberthrill Worth Watching!, May 7 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Net, the (VHS Tape)
When I first saw The Net I was a lot younger and really didn't understand it. But now that I have seen it again I beleive that it is on of 1995's best thrillers. It is an up-beat action movie that is so good it'll keep you on the edge of your chair and your heart beating fast! The series is nothing compared to this movie. I have seen this movie over 20 time, it is just one of those movies that you can watch over and over again and never get tired of. If you haven't seen it yet I reccoment that you do!

5.0 out of 5 stars It was provactive, edgy, and so much fun to watch., April 6 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Net, the (VHS Tape)
I'm looking for anyone else out there who loved this movie. I'm even more interested to know if anyone out there loved "The Net" t.v. series based on the movie on USA network. I did. It has recieved a lot of really bad criticism especially right before the show went off air and I would like to know if someone agrees with me that this was unjust. If anyone knows if the series will air again please tell me! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Film, Feb. 20 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Net, the (VHS Tape)
I, like most of the reviewers here, seem to find myself worrying about realism in computer movies. This movie was different. It didn't take long to find myself getting lost in the movie and forgetting about the technological 'failures'. Sandra was great at demonstrating the fear of someone getting into your files (as a manager at a comms firm, that IS a REAL fear!). The only bit that was REALLY over the top was the 'melting screen' when a virus is infecting a computer in the film but that will be for effect as there is really NO OTHER WAY that I can think of to suggest a virus to the non-computer people (and we all know QUITE how many of them there are!). All in all, a great film

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good..., Jan. 12 1999
By 
This review is from: The Net (Bilingual) (DVD)
Though the incorrect interpretation of technology will no doubt annoy those in the know, the movie functions well as a suspense-thriller, technological or otherwise. Interesting is the expert direction shown where the movie becomes quite hopeless somewhere around the middle. After Dennis Miller's character dies, the movie becomes quiet and the pace slows. Bullock is arrested, no one believes her story, and after a well-done scene where she talks to her Alzheimer's-suffering mother on the phone in prison, the movie goes back to the thriller motif. It was after this bit that I became convinced that this is a really good movie. It's not trying to reinvent the wheel or deliver some message (though it apparently didn't hurt to pretend so in order to boost ticket sales), but it is interesting, has a good cast, and features a few nail-biting scenes that only a talented production could pull off.
