Fatal Error

"Terrible"

Fatal Error Review


Once again, a computer virus attacks humans in the inexplicable (and inexplicably bad) Fatal Error, based on the novel Reaper. My only consolation: Thank God there's no attempt at a love subplot between stars Antonio Sabato Jr. and Janine Turner (playing a disgraced doctor and an army intelligence agent(!) respectively).

As for the movie, this made-for-TBS drivel has our two heroes battling a big bad corporation ("Digicron"), whose "black box" is about to kill off everyone who buys it by turning them to dust if they try to shut off the box. Somehow, this is courtesy of a virus planted in the system by a disgruntled staffer. And somehow, I managed to watch the whole thing, though I now hate myself for it. And I fear my CD player.
