BBS鄉民的正義 - Silent Code
BBS鄉民的正義 (Silent Code) is an 2012 film out of Taiwan. The movie stars Chen Bolin and Ivy Chen. The supporting cast include Puff Kuo.
Bolin is a super hacker. Chen is a leader of a online community called BBS. Bolin's about to graduate college and look for a job. But before he does that, he's been trying to hack BBS. A nosy reporter finds out about BBS and wants to write a story about it. With the help of Bolin, she's engaged with the community. However, there's a mastermind to BBS that people do not see.
This movie was interesting. The BBS world was interesting. They virtualized BBS for us that are watching the film. It probably more like a forum or a guild in real life. It eventually dives into cartoon world for a good part. Almost Matrix style, but the consequence is mob mentality. If you're a fan of Taiwanese films, this is in the middle of the pack more geared towards a younger crowd.
