Hackers isn't a very good movie, but it's a darn sight more fun than The Net.

A disjointed yet generally enjoyable stint at the movies, even for those who don't know an infobahn from a nanosecond.

The story is negligible, but it offers the same order of fun as a good rock video: the marriage of images and music.

A plot thinner than an LCD monitor doesn't prevent the bombastic fun, and the young cast help it hurtle along.

Without being any sort of miracle, this engaging and lively exploitation fantasy-thriller about computer hackers, anarchistic in spirit, succeeds at just about everything The Net failed to.

The sappy ending's hard to take, but the on-line showdown between The Plague, the Secret Service and the united worldwide community of hackers is nail-biting.

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.

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.

The real crime of cyberpunks is that they have encouraged Hollywood to make several bad movies aimed at exploiting this new lifestyle niche.

After the mechanics of the thriller plot start to kick in, the film drags. And when it's time for the big cyber-showdown, we're stuck, once again, with footage of frantic typing.

This is a movie that sums up the worst of the computer era: zapping you with techno-cliches and trapping you in constant visual crash and burn.

What's most grating about Hackers, however, is the guileless way the movie buys in to the computer-kid-as-elite-rebel mystique currently being peddled by magazines like Wired.

Even if you bought DOS for Dummies, there's nothing in HACKERS that will stretch your brain.

There is a great deal more style than substance here.
