I have to say that outside of most Asian American films, this is one of the few movies I’ve actually seen that was filmed with more Asians than White people but the entire film was done in English. On top of it, it wasn’t a bad science fiction film where everyone is linked into a system that controls everyone’s identity. And when the main characters of this futuristic city find out that they’re part of something a lot bigger, it becomes a lot more complicated and dangerous.
Released in the US under the name Cyber Wars, I have actually never seen it on television or anywhere else that I can remember. First time was actually when I plugged up my Instant Viewing from Netflix.
Written by a Star Trek: The Next Generation writer and producer, this film has a Matrix quality about it but the acting reminds you a little of a better version of those late-night television movies and there are some holes in the plot line that makes you wonder if it’ll ever be resolved. Most of it was pretty predictable, but it was still enjoyable. So if you’re bored a Sunday afternoon and was looking for one of those sci-fi futuristic 1984 type scenarios, then Avatar might suit that desire nicely.
