A suspenseful movie about computer terrorism

"Wirus (Virus) is a suspenseful movie about computer terrorism, an issue that is just as much a concern today as it was in 1996 when this movie was made. The only thing that dates this film is seeing the computer screens of the monitors, which are a little funny at times because they look primitive compared to what they look like now. However, there is more to the story as it is also about rivalry between two brothers. Although the story might get a little confusing at times because some of the details do not add up, but this is part of the mysterious side of the story.
Michael (Cezary Pazura) is a broken man because his wife is having an affair with his brother. He used to write computer viruses when he was younger and now people want him to help them get rid of the viruses that are plaguing the city. Another group of people want a disk from him. He doesn't know what they are talking about but they use deadly force to try to make him hand it over. It is hard at times to tell who is loyal to which group, which creates a lot of mystery. Between the action and the mystery there are a lot of sexy parts also.
Pazura's role in Wirus is a bit different than his usual. He plays a scruffy guy that is always yelling or acting like a drunk, probably because he is always drinking. He borders on being an annoying character because of the way he acts.
Wirus is entertaining if you like action films. It is a very unpredictable movie because people are torturing Michael one minute and it is all good the next. Don't expect anything sophisticated because it isn't that type of film.
