Echelon Conspiracy: review

After a prologue in which a cutting-edge cell phone leads a woman to death via text message, the device winds up in the hands of Shane West, a computer wizard who specializes in security encryption. At first, the phone works like magic: West gets inside information on when a plane will go down, when stocks will skyrocket, and when to shove in all his chips at the blackjack table. But itís an extremely coveted sinister device, leading West into a showdown with the National Security Agency, which is working to harness all network devices into a spying program more invasive than the Patriot Act could have ever conceived.

Once the powers-that-be latch onto West and he stops using the phone as his personal genie in a bottle, Echelon Conspiracy loses its pulpy hook and devolves into a by-the-numbers international thriller in the Bourne vein. (Cue Ed Burns, who has a habit of popping up in movies like Mr. Sandman.) The requisite chases and shootouts are relieved somewhat by an unintentionally ridiculous scene where West talks down a computer as if it were a jumper on a ledge. But by then, the film isnít ridiculous enough to justify all the tedium.
