Synopsis: Emmy is a contemporary computer scientist who is researching artificial life. By using her own genetic code, Emmy is able to collapse time & link her world directly to that of Ada's reality. Who is Ada you may ask? Ada is Lady Ada Lovelace, daughter of Lord Byron and a mathematical genius that developed what would become the world's first computer language roughly, 100 years before the first computers were created. Anyway, Emmy, in linking her world to Ada's realizes how parallel their lives are and she begins the process of "saving" Ada as the lines between past, present & virtual reality are blurred in the process.

Audio: The audio as presented is a 2 channel stereo platform that adequately presents the info on the disc. There were no special effects of any note that would require the lushness of a 5.1 or even 6.1 digital platform. Put simply, the audio was sufficient.

Video: The video as presented was a non-anamorphic widescreen format that was replete with scratches, dullness, and markings on & in the transfer. The video was poor but it was not bad enough to keep you from watching the whole of the film. That would be the content & execution of the film, but I'll get on to that in a moment.

Extras: The extras contained on the disc are filmographies & Technical notes concerning the feature's production. They were static & boring & lent nothing to the benefit of the film.

Overall: Overall, this has got to be one of the worst acted & worst concepts put to film that I have seen in a long time. It would have probably been a good idea to have someone actually understand computers before using lingo & creating scenarios that are totally bogus & technically improbable not too mention impossible. Bad movie all the way aro
