    Hackers

    ★★★

    Honestly a load of cheesy fun. Very, very '90s, from the outrageous fashion to the almost cyberpunk vision of a NYC underworld. <b<Hackers has aged badly, but in a good way where it can be appreciated as a silly oddity.

    I kinda went into this expecting it to have all sorts of insane over the top hacking schemes, but it's surprisingly restrained in a lot of ways. It never gets too big for its boots in terms of plot, in…

    For a portion of the first half I was close to having an "is this it?" moment, because despite the huge musical numbers and inventive direction & cinematography, the plot was a bit run of the…
