Hackers Reviews

December 10, 2018
One may criticise Hackers for being unreal, ridiculous or just too cheesy, but it stands as one of the most underrated gems to have come out of the 1990s. The performances are vibrant, the storytelling is kinetic and the visuals are something to behold.

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.

Silly but enjoyable.

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.

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.

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

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.

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