Movies that are slightly off.
There is no right or wrong, only fun and boring
Along with his new friends, a teenager who was arrested by the US Secret Service and banned from using a computer for writing a computer virus discovers a plot by a nefarious hacker, but they must use their computer skills to find the evidence while being pursued by the Secret Service and the evil computer genius behind the virus.
There was this one time Hackers started playing on the TV while Tim and I were arguing. Both of us wanted to watch it so bad that we just dropped the argument entirely so we could watch it. I don’t even remember what the hell we were arguing about. Hackers can save a marriage.
Still corny. Still ridiculous. Still preposterous. Still outrageous. And I love the shit out of it. Love the characters, love the locales, love all the "geeky tech" talk and love the style. Lorraine Bracco is the only thing that bugs in this movie.
The montage with the spinning phone booths... aw yeah.
Hackers had consultants. Actual NYC hackers who consulted on the movie so they could get the culture and the speech right. The writer went to underground hacker meetings while he was writing the script. So...I guess this is the absolute be all end all of what hacking was like in the 90's and this is what computer viruses looked like at the time.
A friend of mine used to work for Microsoft as a programmer. He was coming up around this time and he said no movie ever got computers even close to right and he brought this movie up once as a "come on...really?!" kinda moment but I can't wait to tell him that this movie is 100% accurate…
Holy shit. I think I've found it. This is definitely the most ridiculous film I've ever seen about computers - even more ridiculous than Virtual Sexuality, a movie where a girl creates her own ideal boyfriend using VR technology and he comes to life through sexual harassment induced electricity. I didn't think that was possible.
Dade (what kind of a name is that) is a teen hacker who's just gotten his internet privileges back after having them taken away for seven years, due to a Super Hacking Crime he was convicted of as an 11 year old. He moves to New York and immediately falls in with a crew of ridiculous hackers, all of whom wear outfits that are completely…
Recreate the experience of watching this film, by getting a friend to scream, "NINETIES KIDS ARE SO RADICAL", in your face for an hour and a half.
Iain Softley's "Hackers," a now-quaint story of teenage computer hackers, is a developed character and a more developed plot away from being enjoyable. The techno-drama is watchable and exudes a vibrant energy, but the film does not have the narrative foundation needed to make the entire affair click.
"Hackers" revolves around a team a youthful techno-hooligans that finds itself on the run from the authorities after uncovering some kind of token nefarious techno-plot. The narrative tries to succeed with the personalities and mischief of its characters, but those characters never offer enough personality about which to care. The machinations of the plot are routine and only rarely compelling.
With a solid cast, including Jonny Lee Miller and Angelina Jolie, Softley…
although this movie is painfully bad (90's overload) - it's still unintentionally hilarious + also love that soundtrack. GOD Matthew Lillard is the most annoying actor and plays the worst characters.
Somehow I missed this film growing up. All of my "friends" are officially on notice, this would have been perfect teenaged fodder, how could you let me miss it? Doesn't hold up especially well, but AJL is young and hot.
File this under way more entertaining than I'm willing to admit.
lol, ché pas j'étais où en 95, mais c'est clair que si j'avais vu ce film-là à cette époque je serais devenu un pirate communiste en roller-blade... J'avais déjà les roller... Et j'ai eu ma phase léniniste... hmmmm
I like to think Michael Mann saw this and was so inspired by the parts where we are shown the inside of a computer during a hack that he made BLACKHAT as a tribute.
The movie has some style but it was kind of a slog to get through it.
Hackers gets almost everything totally wrong about computers and the Internet, but that’s just fine. Fans of the movie (like me) know that it has very little idea of what it is talking about and we simply don’t care because we still dig its hyper-stylized stream of consciousness editing, its vivid artistic interpretation of the computer world, and the dynamite camaraderie between its main collective of computer hackers. Seeing this crew geek out while engaging electronic shenanigans is a total blast, especially if you’re the type of person who can turn off your brain and take in a movie that lives by its own rules, no matter how ridiculous they might seem. Plus, it’s gratifying to see these mischievous teens raise hell for the awful adults (Fisher Stevens and Lorraine Bracco) trying to frame them a crime they didn’t commit. Just try and watch the film without yelling, “Hack the planet!” once it’s over. I dare you.
Goofy as shit then, and even goofier now. King of the American accent Johnny Lee Miller isn't a very good lead, so good thing he's overshadowed by a bored Angelina Jolie and whatever the fuck Matthew Lillard is doing.
I'd like to imagine in 100 years people believe this is what the Internet was like in 1995.
Nerd-punks toying around on the internet with corny-ass, dated 90s graphics = fam.
Saya cukup terkesan dengan teknik-teknik hacking yang di munculkan film ini. Untuk film yang rilis 1995, itu adalah sesuatu yang menarik bisa mampu mendeskripsikan sisi gelap dari dunia digital. Sementara premiis yang dihadirkan juga cukup mampu menggugah rasa penasaran yang ia bentuk dari awal. Pun juga karakternya bekerja dengan baik.
"Hackers" mungkin tidaklah sehebat film hacker macam "Die Hard 4" atau "Who am I?", tapi jelas ia adalah film yang unforgettable di kelasnya.
