Essentially a cautionary tale of slightly futuristic cyberterrorism, Netforce carries Tom Clancy's heavyweight name as the executive producer (but not writer). Don't expect a drama on the level of Patriot Games, however: N...  more »

Melanie A W. (novelwriter) from NEWINGTON, CT
Reviewed on 11/24/2007...
I have this movie. I absolutely love it! Great acting by Scott Bakula who plays Alex Michaels deputy director of Net Force until his boss is killed unexpectedly and it is up to Alex to find out who did it.

Movie Reviews

A great movie
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I have never read Tom Clancy's books nor had I heard of the Net Force series before, but this movie was so good that I actually went to the net to look for Clancy's books. Even though some characters are not well developed, the movie was a very realistic depiction of how our technology could be in about 20 years. The plot was fast moving and it kept me on the edge of my seat to the very end."
Not All that Special
(2 out of 5 stars)

"If you've read the book or books, and saw this movie, you know this is mocking the brilliance of Tom Clancy. This choppy, made-for-TV film has terrible dialogue, ludicrous conversations, and an awful storyline that barely goes with the book.
You probably know screenplay is almost everything, and a poor one makes a film terrible, especially if the screenwriter isn't good in the genre of films he's writing. That was Lionel Chetwynd, who wrote the teleplay. He had previously written countless documentries, and Net Force was his first theatrical film.
On a strong point, the acting is fantastic. Scott Bakula has a great performance as Alex Michaels, Kris Kristofferson delivers once again, and Brian Dennehy makes a good effort. Little known actor Paul Hewitt is wonderful playing the young computer wiz, Jay Gridley.
Bottom Line: The acting is good, but screenplays kill and this one doesn't deliver. Net Force wouldn't be my first choice for viewing pleasure."
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Having been an avid Tom Clacy reader since 'Red October' I have to admit to being slightly disappointed in this film of his NetForce book. The acting by Bakula is excellent as usual. But I found having read the books that it strays too far from the plot, even allowing for editorial license. Having said that it was still enjoyable to watch."
