In a fairly near future, everyone is plugged into cyberspace so well, you can see anyone’s name by looking at them and can read the ingredients in a bagel at a glance. This starts to not work out so well when a cyber-ghosted murderer starts a spree.
This is a pretty taut mystery drama, despite some rather somber performances by some of the leads. The score is sparse, which works well for the pacing. I do have some issues as to how the tech is supposed to be working, as they do not get much into how the data is controlled.
Pretty entertaining, if you ignore some of the plot questions. Sex and violence abound, so you probably want to watch this after the kiddies are in bed. No post credits scenes.
Flytrap rating: 7.5/10
