Kilmer and Ironside clearly had no interest in doing a TV series, butGooding apparently did. And for TV, not so terribly bad. The conceptjust about carries it. As for the comments about clutzy props, TV showdecider-suits love the idea that the thing won't cost them a bunch,yank some crap out of the warehouse and fake the rest.
I liked it for what it was. And for the ludicrous notion that higherpowers would want to put chips into us. Wherever did they get thatfrom?
Of course, this puppy won't see the light of day.

I didn't think the movie "Hardwired" was as bad as a 4. But it isn'tthe greatest either. Gooding's character Luke is played well as adistraught man trying to figure out what has happened to him and who isresponsible. He really is the best part of the movie. On the otherhand, Kilmer is always good for a crazy man, unfortunately I thinkKilmer's character is strongly underplayed in this movie. Is he a crazyperson? Or is he just a middle man with no heart? I don't know. I wouldof enjoyed it had he played with more psychotic emotion. The manresponsible for Hope Corp. might as well been Kilmer's character. Didthey actually pay the guy who was Mr. Hope? For the person responsiblefor the bases of this movie, he really didn't do much. I also don'tknow if it was a selling ploy, but why is Val Kilmer's hair perfect onthe cover picture? It is far from perfect in the movie.
Conclusion: I enjoyed it as a relaxing Saturday, nothing to do, movie.

I just finished watching this movie. If you like sci-fi, you mightenjoy this if you have nothing else to watch. The story line is OK, itcould happen I suppose. The plot has been done so many times though.The acting is not there, even though it has some decent actors in it.Seems Cuba didn't even want to play the role, shows really no passionin the movie. The action failed real bad. After around 15 minutes orso, it turns video-gamish. The ending is left for a sequel in-which Ihave no clue as to why. Also, why did I give it a 5? It has it'smoments & could have been a decent movie. If your a die-hard sci-fifan, you might just like it. I try to be fair when judging all movies,because what I don't like others will & vice-versa.

With the help of new allies, Luke tries to recover the memories of his past while uncovering the Hexx Corporation's true motives.
