Hackers

Critics Consensus

Hackers has a certain stylish appeal, but its slick visuals and appealing young cast can't compensate for a clichéd and disappointingly uninspired story.

    the film is fun if goofy but it has cult status with the advanced plot of the era. the music, the actors and the villain deliver a film that isn't critic friendly but audience friendly.

    Despite having a number of now-famous actors in it, Hackers is one of their earlier films and the acting is -- well, a hack job. Despite the bad makeup, there is nothing one can do to make a group of young twenty-somethings pass for 16 and 17 year old high school students -- nor did I see the point of setting the film in a high school. University students would have been more credible. The story is a bit stupid and it relies on an early home-PC audience not being very sophisticated in technology matters. (Some viewers may find this aspect of the film both nostalgic and hilarious -- who am I to judge?) Costumes were puzzling and distracting in their "edginess". (If that was even the goal?) The film is from 1995, but it had the 80's trash studio junk vibe. Still, it's a marginally fun movie that could be worth watching if you have nothing better to do or you're feeling too lazy to change the channel.

    Hackers is an atrocious high-tech thriller that's just one bad stereotype after another. The story follows a group of high school computer hackers that are being setup to take the fall for a terrorist attack. Jonny Lee Miller, Angelina Jolie, Matthew Lillard, and Fisher Stevens form the cast and give horribly cliched performances. The characters aren't likable or relatable; they're just generic stereotypes that ride around on skateboards, wear sunglasses indoors, and throw around inane techno-jargon. And the tech in this high-tech thriller is laughable bad, with the most ridiculous visual representations of hacking. While trying to glorify the world of computer hacking, Hackers actual makes a mockery of it.

    Hackers is hi-LAR-ious because of the way it portrays the Internet. The hacking duels between Jonny Lee Miller and Angelina Jolie are at once ridiculous and kinda sexy. A LOT of fun.
