| Could have been better if well thought out...but otherwise a Hal-9000 rip-off
I stumbled up on this when it first came out on TV in 1992 mainly because Kate Jackson was in it and I was always a fan of Kate Jackson from her days in Charlies Angels.

Basically in a nutshell, this is your typical sentient female computer (played by Jackson) that is created by a scientist, falls in love with said scientist and then goes berserk and wants to kill the woman that comes between her and her "man" (creator).

The movie is slow and certain points are just not believable as objects move within the home without any apparent physical connection. Does the computer have telekinesis? I don't think so.

If you want to see a homicidal computer in action, go right to the source. Hal-9000 from 2001: Space Odyssey which is considered one of the best sci-fi movies made. Nuff said? At any rate the acting is mediocre overall, and while Ms Jackson's does voice the computer very well, it is in by no comparison to Candice Bergen's voice for SAL-9000 in the movie 2010. (Sal's voice is just as good as Hal's BTW, very eerie).

At any rate for the Hal-9000 fan this might be worth watching in addition other movies that have 'borrowed' from Stanley Kubrick masterpiece. But for a first time view...watch 2001: Space Odyssey first.
