“The title characters in “Hackers” are such hip and brilliant young pirates that they can tamper with any computer system without breaking a sweat. They’re so clever, in fact, that some of us are thrilled to know that the actors in “Hackers” had to take a crash typing course to get through the film’s keyboard scenes.” — Janet Maslin, New York Times
From a time when computer hacking was synonymous with rollerblading, this incredible candy-colored document stars Jonny Lee Miller (Sherlock, Trainspotting) and Angelina Jolie as rock-star-level hackers who go from pranking their high school sprinkler system, to getting tangled up in deadly corporate intrigue, all while showing off bleeding-edge haircuts and enough attitude for a thousand record store clerks. Pleasingly glossy, surprisingly smart and, as Roger Ebert points out, “deeply dubious in the computer science department”, Hackers is big dumb fun for the armchair cybercriminal in all of us. From the director of K-PAX!
Dir. Iain Softley, 1995, 35mm, 107 min.
