well, its clear to see whats going on here. someone was very fond of movies like matrix, escape from new york and minority report and just did his "version" of it, but unfortunately this one is very bad. every scene in this movie is basically a remake of a scene from some other science fiction movie, the title "vortex" is a slight change of "the matrix" and the similarities go so far that even the actors say the same things as in other science fiction movies.
for example, the scene at the end when the warden of this new-age prison says "lets play some music", its so much a ripoff of the scene from "minority report", it was hard for me not to smash my TV in anger.
on the other hand, the design and everything is very nice, so it could have some potential, but they blew it by not coming up with *anything* original, its all a rip-off.
