story of a woman who has her identity along with her life stolen,as if
she never existed.she must then try to get it back.this movie is not a
sequel to the original.in fact it has none of the characters from that
movie.nevertheless,it is suspenseful,riveting and action packed.there
are of course a few plot twists,some predictable,others not.the acting
is more than decent,especially from Nikki Deloach(TV's North Shore) as
Hope Cassidy,the main character.She is very credible as a woman who has
lost everything.the supporting cast are also strong.the direction is a
bit suspect at times,as the director utilizes many jump shots
throughout.A jump shot is essentially a type of camera trick.this is
used to make the action flashier for the audience.However,it has been
done so much before that audiences are mot impressed.minor quibble
aside, however,Net 2.0 is overall a well done ,entertaining and fun
movie.well worth your 90 minutes. 3.5/5

Aside from the lovely travelogue of Istanbul, there's nothing really new or different, some of the plot is totally implausible, but it does have an unexpected twist I didn't see coming. So for escapism entertainment, THE NET 2.0 is enjoyable.
The film follows an American computer security expert Nikki Cassidy (Nikki Deloach) who finds a new job in Istanbul. She needs a change; needs something different, something very exciting. Nikki flies to Turkey, leaving her reluctant boyfriend behind, and there she is wrongly accused of the murders by the local authority.
`The Net: 2.0" uses so many clichéd narrative and visual techniques taken from other better thrillers including its original: flashbacks, voiceovers, fast-forwards and jump-cuts, mysterious (and unreliable) strangers, stolen IDs and high-tech machines. Director Charles Winkler gives bits of car chase here, hand-to-hand fights there, and some tricks using James Bond-like hand-made gadgets in between.
Still we are not excited at all. But how can we? The film totally forgets to explain certain important things. Why doesn't she just phone someone in the US? Being a computer expert who actually meets clients, Nikki must know someone who can help her. How was the money withdrawn from her bank account? And most of all, as to the mastermind of this conspiracy, why not bribe her (or someone else) instead of preparing intricate setups?
`The Net 2:0" shows several great aerial shots and beautiful landscapes of the city. the detailed shots of the streets and buildings of the city are in fact much better than the main plot and character themselves.
There were enough twists and turns in this film to be satisfying, however I found some parts of the film to be a little excessive. A lot of yelling, a lot of banter between Deloach and the psychologist (almost like frenemies at high school). Still, it is worth watching, and I found the ending quite satisfying. For a low-budget film that went straight to DVD, it's really quite a good film.
