Misguided James Caan and director Norman Jewison completism. It's an irredeemable dog. A mashup hyperviolent game in futurish corporatised America that keeps the peons consuming. The free man wins, and doubtlessly continues consuming. Ralph Richardson plays a fruity computer librarian.

James Canby at the time: humourless. I doubt many have watched it since.
