Attractive leads in a leaden suspense story
| Original Score: 1/5
August 15, 2002
It gives you more insight into the minds of Hollywood hacks than of computer hackers.

Ultimately falls flatter than a floppy disk, relying solely on style to divert attention from the lack of an original plot.

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

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.

How do you make typing look exciting?
January 1, 2000
Tirelessly modish, hyper-glossy, super-superficial. It's also cacophonous. And, for all of its drum-beating for brain power, dumb.
January 1, 2000
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.

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.

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.

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.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

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

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.

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