Adam works developing new software for a major communications corporation, headed by a mysterious figure named Wyatt. When Wyatt fires Adam during a presentation, Adam decides to spend his company credit card and buy bottles for all his friends at the club the next night. Wyatt brings him in the next day and forces him to become a corporate spy on his opponent and former partner Jock Goddard. He pitches an idea for software that can hack into any cell phone, which impresses Goddard enough to have him bring Adam in under his wing. Meanwhile, Adam starts getting romantically involved with one of Goddard's assistants, Emma, in hopes of getting some information to give to Wyatt. Wyatt, however, is not messing around: he hears there is a secret cell phone Goddard is about to reveal that will change the game, and he tells Adam that his father will be killed unless he can successfully steal a copy of the prototype. When Adam finally gets in, using fingerprints he lifted from Emma to get access to a secret vault, Goddard reveals that it was all a set-up to bring Wyatt's company to the ground. With the new evidence that Wyatt sent a spy into Goddard's midst, he can crash Wyatt's company and dominate the market. Adam must now find a way to get the authorities to bring down both Wyatt and Goddard, or he will end up going to jail for a very long time.
Best part of story, including ending:
The main characters are bland, the dialogue is cringe-worthy, and very little of the characters' behavior seems to reflect reality in any way.
Best scene in story:
A scene at the end, in which Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford are face to face, spouting insults at one another in a hammy manner, provides some degree of enjoyment.
Opinion about the main character:
The main character makes a colossally stupid error in judgment to set all of these actions into motion. It's very hard to root for a guy who would steal thousands of dollars from a CEO on a whim expecting the CEO to not notice.
