Or as they say in Poland, Wirus. This suspenseful story follows a computer virus that's eating its way through Warsaw, and features Polish action stars Olaf Lubaszenko, Jan Englert, and Cezary Pazura. After the computer networks of a major bank and hospital are compromised, Michal, a young hacker, is hired to combat the virus before it completely cripples the institutions. As he digs deeper into the code, he comes to believe his brother, Stefan, might be the cyber terrorist. Michal's crush on the foxy bank manager isn't helping either. Wirus came a year after the wave of hacker movies (The Net, Hackers, Johnny Mnemonic) swept through the States. In Polish with English subtitles.
