Young nerd hacker is busted by and recruited by the Feds to save the world, Thereby being assigned the obligatory team of rejects. (Not as bad as it sounds).

This is my first experience of viewing a made for online movie and was skeptical until reading the reviews. It is many notches above the made for TV assembly line trash so prevalent today.

Yes, it is an oft used plot and has the time worn action scenes but it works. The storyline is for the most part fast paced. The characters are fairly well developed and the actors are well cast. Sam Worthington and James Caan are excellent. The bottom tier agents, the "throwaways," are a little over the top but still enjoyable to watch. Katie McGrath is wonderful and lovely to look at. I am really surprised that mainstream Hollywood is so late in noticing her.

The only thing that really bothered me was when Dan and Dmitri kept referring to an RPG as a bazooka. (Hey, I had to find some fault with this movie)! Forget the low budget and just immerse yourself into an entertaining bit of film making.

Would I watch it again? You bet! Would I recommend it to a friend? I already have!
