I think the violence in the book would put a movie adaption at an R rating. I think it would be good as a movie. But it might be better to use all three books in the series to do the movie instead of basing it off of just the first book.

I thought of Superhighway while watching the trailer for an upcoming animated movie from Disney.

I think it could definitely be a movie and I think that Alex could be played by Dylan O'Brien from the "Maze Runner" movies. I think the visuals would be great if they produced it right. The descriptions reminded me of "Tron: Legacy" the movie. It's something that I would watch.
Give me the courage to get through this week...or at least a big bar of chocolate :D

While I would certainly give the movie a try, I don't know if it would work well as a movie. I think the book ended up being a bit long and repetitive, so I think this would have to be adapted for a movie.

The whole concept would be interesting to see onscreen. If they rewrote the plot though and gave the script a more mature take then definitely. I would want to see the actual jumping through the cables and traversing the internet through Alex's eyes.
