Great Little Movie
I first saw this film on TV in 1986 when I was ten. It's taken me the next 25 years to track it down thank to not being able to remember what it was called.
I recently acquired a copy of it from an unexpected source and while it hasn't aged brilliantly it is still a fun little ride.
The plot is a fairly straight forward revenge thriller, where the guy framed for a crime he didn't commit escapes and decides to get even with the person who framed him.
Features Alexandra Pigg as the love interest, who Bernard Rose the director went on to use in a few other outings of his.
The real reason for watching this is that the hacking sequences portrayed are actually pretty realistic using proper software and hardware that was available in 1986.
For a fledgling geek like me at the time this movie was absolutely a must watch. I am very glad I am now able to revisit it whenever I like.
