This movie is the fictional story of computer programming genius Milo Hoffman after graduating from Stanford and getting out into the competitive world of computer software. In his contemplation of where to begin his career, he is contacted by Gary Winston whose character is loosely based on Bill Gates. Winston is the CEO of a company called NURV, and they are on the brink of completing the global communication's system, Synapse. They need Hoffman to help them meet their launch date, so after much thought and with the full support of his girlfriend Alice, he accepts the job. Tragedy soon after strikes and Milo becomes suspicious of the company he has been wrapped up in. He learns that trusting anyone could be a mistake, and that nothing is as it seems.Written by
The first time Gary comes up to Milo with "helpful code," there is a glimpse of the source. If you look closely at the byte casting in the if/else statement it vertically reads "GET "..."HEAD ". Followed immediately by Gary's statement. "Oh God. Oh, so much fun. I love doing this." See more »
After Teddy is killed, Milo is handed a CD which contains new source code that solves the bandwidth limitations. Unless Gary refactored it considerably, Milo would be able to spot Teddy, and possibly his own coding style instantly. Combined with Gary's comment "its not in the box, its in the band", it makes no sense for Gary to hand Milo such condemning proof. See more »

Its hard to write about this film. Lets do good, bad, & ugly... The Good is Ryan is the star. As Milo, he's a well educated student going to work for this extremly secure company. The dream job for all the knock-off Computer Programmers that never did anything with their certificate! Nice car, nice home, beautiful girl... The Bad, the story of this film gets very interesting when something tramatic happens in Milo's life. But, the closer you get into the movie, the more you stop trusting each person that is around Milo, when your just right there in a place that very few motion pictures take you, you get to the ending sequence...& that ladies & gentlemen is where The Ugly is.
