Synopsis
Mai and her friends have had an unseparable bond since childhood. But as of late, their friendship is questioned when their romantic relationships get in the way of others. But before Mai can make amends, she is killed in a traffic accident. Distraught with her death, Mai's father implements his ongoing research of recording a person's memory into a microchip. His years of work finally pay off and Mai is alive again -- through a computer. But trouble soon brews when a large corporation sends some thugs to retrieve Mai and the technology through forcible means. But before they can get to Mai, her father luckily safehavens her into her boyfriend's laptop. Now the chase is on for the laptop and Mai's boyfriend and former friends have to run to keep her safe.

there's nothing for you in this movie. plot makes no sense, cgi looks horribly early 90s, and no miike special touches in sight.

i got about halfway through this before i decided to stop wasting my time on it - even as a kid, i doubt this would have appealed to me in the least - watch spykids or even that lame adam sadler remote control movie instead

Japanese Tear Jerker Soap -- NOT sci-fi by ninotob May 8, 2005 - 10:55 PM PDT

This movie is not sci-fi. It belongs in one of the least enjoyable categories of film: the Japanese Melodramatic Soap Opera. Sure, there is some nod toward sci-fi ... but no explanation, no believability of any sort, and no real exploration. Cardboard cutout bad guys ... MUAHAHAHA ... high school friends becoming better friends, and a lesson in the evils of using technology.

The best thing I can say about the film is that the dialogue was so sparse and short, it was easy to read the subtitles at double speed and thereby reduce the tortu^H^H^H^H^H viewing time somewhat.
