People love playing videogames, but what if videogames started playing with people? That's the premise of this anime adventure from Japan in which a young maths whiz must prevent a malevolent artificial intelligence from the omnipresent virtual universe of 'OZ' from wreaking havoc in the real world. Director Mamoru Hosoda ("the new Hiyao Miyazaki") upgrades the idea of 1980s favourite WarGames to create a colourful cyberfest that highlights the perils of social networking, putting all your technological eggs in one basket, and trying to impress the wrong girl.
