War Games 2: The Dead Code

"Greetings again, Professor Falken"

I know this was mentioned in some previous obscure thread, but:

What do you think?

War Games 2: The Dead Code (2007)


Unnecessary sequel, or with today's computer technology and the war on terrorism that this more topical than ever? Perhaps a cameo by Matthew Broderick, now working for NORAD?

Awesome. I hope there are at least a few scenes where someone is pecking away at their keyboard and creating advanced graphic images by doing it.

Many of these "Direct to Video" sequels have nothing to do with the original movies...they were already in production or the script was already written, the studio took a look at them, and said, "Hey, why don't we make this a sequel to 'Whatever'", and they slap the name on it, knowing it will make more money that way. I'm guessing this may be one of them.

Will our protagonist choose ketchup or mustard? Or will he defy convention and HAVE BOTH?!?!?!

If it inspires a special edition re-release of the original with 16:9 enhanced video, I'm all for it.
