So.. there’s this new show on Netflix. A little hidden gem if you will. It’s called ReBoot: The Guardian Code. Before get get into my review I’d like to add this show is aimed for teens!? I assume. And also, when I don’t do movie reviews I write websites and see code on daily basis soo…
Reboot got 5 main characters; Austin, Parker, Trey, Tamra & Vera. These kids go to Alan Turing High School a school based on IT. (If you don’t know who Alan Turing is, please click here. ) On first day back in school, Austin, Parker, Trey & Enigma get a text message saying they need to report to Room 0. Where they find a wall. But.. when going through the wall that is a hologram, they find a high tech room. Finding out they are something called ‘Cyber Guardian’. Protecting mankind from cyber attacks by entering the cyber.
Now it’s here where it gets REALLY ridiculous. We see them fighting malicious code or as they call it, dark code (made me go wait.. what!?). And seriously, don’t make me start about the guy who plays the hacker. That’s a mess, massive mess. Code that attacks various ‘stations’ of the internet and it’s up to the kids to fight it and make sure it’s safe again.
We get to see a story line with Austin and he lost his dad last term. He was a teacher same school he goes to now and how Austin is trying to cope with the lose. While being a ‘Guardian’ he find out about his dad’s extra work, if you will.
Reboot; The Guardian Code, is bit of a gem to watch but at the same time while watching it, it made me go ‘wait.. what!?’ on several occasions. So much inaccuracy and so much made up stuff. I mean.. if you are going to make a movie or Tv show like this you need some accuracy playing or it’ll turn into a mess. Which Reboot is. A mess. As much fun it is to watch it’s also quite painful to watch due to it’s bad acting, horrible casting and non-accuracy.
Reboot can be found on Netflix in their category; Netflix Originals.
