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.
god bless the 90s
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.
Very interesting 90s cyberpunk style
Corny and bad acting but the style of the movie and its 90s CGI makes it
More fun than it should be but it does remind you why you hate Matthew Lillard. It may also have the worst soundtrack in movie history.
everyone in this movie is Truly servin looks
A group of gifted high school hackers find themselves battling against a corporate extortion conspiracy.
Light-hearted crime techno-thriller written by Rafael Moreu and directed by Iain Softley.
The plot is well written, and offers the viewer a story that is purely comic-book, portraying the hackers as superheroes battling a completely larger than life villain. The mix of action and comedy works perfectly, and though the subject matter is incredibly dated by today's standards, it still has a quirkiness that makes it fun to watch.
The original soundtrack is composed by Simon Boswell, and along with the techno / house tracks by The Prodigy, Leftfield and others compliments the on-screen proceedings perfectly.
The cast of young (and at the time) up-coming…
We all thought this was the bomb in 1995 and we were so deeply, deeply wrong.
It's a terrible movie. It's FUN terrible, because it never stops being entertaining, and a fun bad movie is better than a boring one. But lord, this movie is just so very stupid; not simply about the fascinating ways it gets both technology AND 90s youth culture incredibly wrong (at the time we thought/hoped it was prescient - turns out it was just bullshit) but also it has a tremendously stupid plot, characters who make dumb decisions, hilariously crazy stylistic choices used to render the visually boring task of computer hacking exciting (with LASERS), and a slew of bad performances - Jonny Lee Miller's…
Happy birthday to Zero Cool and the gang.
probably the peak of cinema.
