Region B Blu-ray

This nearly forgotten Sci-fi masterpiece should have been a monster hit. For some reason Universal didn’t think that a computer menace was commercial — the year after 2001. The superior drama sells a tough concept: the government activates a defense computer programmed to keep the peace. It does exactly that, but by holding the world hostage while it makes itself a God above mankind. Starring Eric Braeden, Susan Clark, Gordon Pinsent, William Schallert and Georg Stanford Brown. On Blu-ray from Medium Rare.
