Pierce Brosnan's self-made aviation tycoon Mike wants to launch an Uber for private jets. But he's flying by the seat of his pants.
Luckily, new tech guy Ed (James Frecheville) is on hand to fix the firm's software glitches. And he's soon sorting out the IT in the 'smart' home Mike shares with his beautiful wife (Anna Friel) and nubile teenage daughter (Stefanie Scott), as well. Unfortunately, Ed is a creepy stalker and his cyber skills are soon making Mike's perfect life hell.
"From zero to nostril-flaring psycho in seconds"
High-tech thriller I.T. gets off to a clunky start. Brosnan's tech-unsavvy Mike is implausibly trusting and naïve at first, while Frecheville's Ed goes from zero to nostril-flaring psycho in seconds. But having tipped his hand far too early, director John Moore successfully ramps up the tension in the second half and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star Michael Nyqvist adds clout as the terse intelligence spook who comes to Mike's aid.
Certificate 15. Runtime 95 mins. Director John Moore
I.T. will be available to watch on Premium Digital Download from 10th March, 2017, on iTunes, Amazon, Wuaki, Talk Talk, Google Play, Microsoft Xbox, Sky Store, Vubiquity.

A film critic for over 25 years, Jason admits the job can occasionally be glamorous – sitting on a film festival jury in Portugal; hanging out with Baz Luhrmann at the Chateau Marmont; chatting with Sigourney Weaver about The Archers – but he mostly spends his time in darkened rooms watching films. He’s also written theatre and opera reviews, two guide books on Rome, and competed in a race for Yachting World, whose great wheeze it was to send a seasick film critic to write about his time on the ocean waves. But Jason is happiest on dry land with a classic screwball comedy or Hitchcock thriller.
