Hackers looks and sounds like an Intel Inside commercial produced by MTV.

Here is the by-now-familiar terrain of fear of technology, mixed with breaking-and-entry into secret government and corporate files, and the equally familiar realm of high schoolers struggling with sexual awakening [and] social pressures.

Austin Chronicle

Silly, predictable, and, dare I say it, oddly endearing, Hackers is the first film I've seen in a long while that annoyed me so much I actually enjoyed it.

To its credit, Hackers recalls the pumped-up energy of Pump Up the Volume, as well as its casting prowess.

The real draw to Hackers is that it is so unexpectedly funny. Really funny.

What's uncovered beneath the flashy skin is an old-fashioned, film-by-numbers thriller.

Tirelessly modish, hyper-glossy, super-superficial. It's also cacophonous. And, for all of its drum-beating for brain power, dumb.

Pseudo-cool anti-authority tone, but no substance.

You leave the theater angry at everyone associated with it for stealing your money and your time with a movie that insults the audience's intelligence with complete garbage.

Hackers is an enjoyable cyberpunk romp. Just don't expect any real insight into the Hacker subculture and don't take it seriously and you're on your way to an passable evening at the cinema.

What is most surprising is that the movie is so tame -- especially considering the ad campaign, which is selling the material as being on the edge.

What it lacks in substance and plausibility it makes up in inventive imagery and deft shadings of a world of scheming cyberpunks.

The movie is well directed, written and acted, and while it is no doubt true that in real life no hacker could do what the characters in this movie do, it is no doubt equally true that what hackers can do would not make a very entertaining movie.
