I loved this movie in 1995, I love this movie now in 2013. Yes my super spoiled, tech savvy generation, this movie will not pass the computer diagnostic for truth in computing.
Lighten Up !! So What!! This was not a Documentary!!
This film for me, captured the connection that some of us would have with technology. The basic concept of knowledge and research as a possible gateway to a superpower is amazing to me.
I could only imagine being as smart as Dade "Zero Cool" Murphy or a powerful as Paul "Lord Nikon" Cook.
The Soundtrack to this movie is not filler it's apart of this movie. Every song fit's every situation in this film to perfection. The ablity to make technology sexy, fun, exciting, and dangerous makes this movie a beautiful fortune cookie to what was to become.
No the movie was not perfect. I was freaked out with the magical phantom like disappearance of one of the main characters in the film.
Yes I still think this film was before it's time and the word "Hacker" is more important now then it was then. It comes down to choice, you could use you're skill for good or greed.
A group of Superhero Hackers save the world with out the use of one bullet, that's dope!! I don't know about the rest of ya, but I would go through a thousands pages of binary codes to hang out with Kate ''Acid Burn'' Libby. Smart chicks are freaking sexy!!!
So dust off you're yellow Motorola Advisor Pager. Look for the repair disk for you're Mac PowerBook Duo 270c. See if you can find you're Rollerblades, and don't forget you're backpack and let's go save the world.
Hackers of the World Unite!!
"...angel headed hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night" - Allen Ginsberg's 'Howl' as quoted by Dade Murphy in 'Hackers'

A fun if somewhat inaccurate romp. Try not to notice the temporal problems.

"Hackers" might not technically reflect what computer hacking is really like but it's pretty fun and has a lot of visual style that keeps people typing on computers interesting. The characters are colorful and fun to follow, the fantasy hacking elements are fun (particularly the montage of "Dade" and "Kate" disrupting "Agent Gill" in his day-to-day life) and there are a lot of cool set pieces, like the letter towers and the giant computer lab. Story-wise it's fun to see the relationship between the characters develop and although the villain isn't particularly interesting he's a competent foil for our protagonists. Some of the film, particularly towards the end where hackers of the world unite together and manage to get into a secure server system repeatedly and without much effort is pretty ridiculous and for a film about computer geniuses it really doesn't feel like the protagonists are super smart wiz-kids that are spinning circles around the normal populace. The performances vary pretty wildly, with most characters being good and convincing, but a few performances (namely Albert Watson, who is awful) aren't very good. It might not be a great film and often reinforces the fact that most people don't really understand what hacking a computer is really like but it's fun and worth taking a look to see if it's your kind of thing.

Hackers is a movie I decided to endure. Within the first few minutes, I could tell that the acting, editing and directing was going to be bad. Angelina Jolie does a good job, but her role is just as mediocre as the others.
The hacking is represented in a profoundly misleading way, with the only exception of social hacking and dumpster diving. The idea of chipping away at each and every transaction is not even new. At least in Superman, the villain took remainders, fractions of cents, which would be much less noticeable.
The music is bad, the action lame... The only thing that kept me going was the fact that I wanted to know how it would develop and the beautiful Jolie.
Don't think about seeing it.

A great high-tech action thriller that builds Suspense well for a intriguing cleaver film.

If you have a burning need for pure 90's nostalgia this is the movie for you.

without Angelina Jolie and her attitude, this would not be worth watching.

This obvious teen exploitation film does everything it sets out to do. Anybody who has read the book "Hacker Crackdown" knows that this film is full of it, but who cares, you're having so much fun watching their computer antics and the burning sexual tension between Dade Murphy (Jonny Lee Miller) and Kate (Angelina Jolie).
Dade (Miller) was a child prodigy with the computer, who got caught hacking into a government mainframe. Now as a teen, newly off parole, and moved to New York City, he's ready to get back on-line. But, being the new kid, he's got a lot to prove with the local hacker community.
On the other side is special agent Dick Gill (Wendell Pierce) who is out to get these pesky kids. This was done at a time when most on-line stuff was Unix-only, but Hollywood did their best to make the computer stuff more graphic; well for 1995. :-)

This is one of those "you had to be there" movies. If you were into computers and hacking in the '90's then this is one of the best movies of your lifetime. Not because it accurately portrayed hacking or computers, but because there was so much behind it that was relevant and real at the time, like Red Boxing payphones, the 2600 references, and the cyber punk subculture that never quite happened like it was supposed to.
If you weren't into computers or were born after 1985, it will look like a ridiculous joke of a movie because you don't understand how it was before the net went mainstream or how it was in the early stages of computers.

A confusing storyline drenched in overdone corny production design. Cheesy dialogue and obviously unrealistic characters complete the picture. It doesn't help that it didn't take long for this film to look completely outdated.
