5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a movie, a way of life March 3, 2002
Format:DVD
If you want a serious movie about hackers, look somewhere else. If you want a really fun movie with good style, Angelina Jolie, and a pulsing soundtrack, Hackers may be for you.
Johhny Lee Miller (aka Crash Override or Zero Cool) moves to New York with his mother. He meets Angelina Jolie (aka Acid Burn) at school and they immediately become rivals. They come up with a hacking contest to prove who is the best. Together with their friends, Lord Nikon, Cereal Killer (my favorite), Phantom Phreak, and Joey (who is nobody without a handle) join up to take on Fisher Stevens as Mr. The Plague.
This movie is chock full of cool scenes, cool people, and skater technobabble. Sure, the hacking scenes are totally unrealistic, the people unrealistic as computer geeks, but with the awesome techno soundtrack and the style they are presented with, it is easy to overlook. Just sit back and enjoy the ride!
I think that most sysadmin types probably have Mr The Plague as their role model. As a villain, he is ultra suave. As a sysadmin, he is over the top. I have never seen a computer guy with this much panache, and I don't suspect I will see another.
After you have made it through the movie a few times you can begin to watch for the fun stuff. Watch Mr The Plague's hands, especially in the flower delivery scene. When they go over to Lord Nikon's place and watch TV, consider what is playing. How many of their secret hacker books do you own?
If I could give this movie more stars, I would. This is by far my favorite hacker type movie, and if you count the number of times I have watched it, it would rank as my all time favorite over all. BUY IT NOW! It is better than Cats, you will watch it again and again.
The soundtrack is available on CD, and if you are a techno fan I suggest looking in to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hackers Review: by - The DarkCircuitry December 1, 1999
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There was a lot of talk about this movie over the Net..90% of net hackers will probably tell u this is the worst movie ever created but i disagree with that ...this movie got me into computers in the first place . I own the DVD and i must have watched this movie over 400 times by now..maybe more i never really kept track, it has its hyped up moments or even a far fetched moment here and there but its a movie for crying out loud, what i think was most accurate (at least to me) was the portrayal of someone who is obsessed by technology and just how the whole sub-culture of the computer underground is like, the clothing, the music, the attitude was all very nice i love this movie and when i have kids they will probably be like "oh god, dads getting out the Hackers DVD again.." and they will probably hate it but it, in my opinion of course, is an excellent movie. Though i urge MGM-DVD to re-release it with some extra features, the features are what make DVD what it is. I saw some scenes flashed in that trailer that were not in the movie and i would give anything to see them,

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Movie March 11, 2000
Format:DVD
this movie is absolutly great, it's a great story, a lot of people complain about it, because it doesn't depict true hacker culture, well people, ya gotta remember two things: 1.) this movie is meant to be a visual manifestation of what hackers see the computer world is, and 2.) if they really showed what true hackers saw on their screen (mostly text, no graphics) then people would get boring, and not want to watch it, and the people that review this movie are always saying, " i'm a hacker, and i never goto clubs like that", tends to tip off the fact that the person really isn't a a hacker, and should use their imagination, and really get the creativity that went into this movie, this is a top of the line movie, awesome music, good acting, and nice visuals, 5 stars all the way!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see for those interested in Hacker culture February 24, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I rented this movie recently for the first time. It was spectacular. Although it doesn't give a completely accurate description of hacker culture, it comes close. This movies show's hackers to be what they really are: People looking for free information, not working to destroy things. The methods of hacking and phreaking (making free phone calls) are innaccurate enough so kids can't do it, but accurate enough to show it can be done and will inspire people to learn more about computers. This is the future

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Movie February 14, 2005
Format:DVD
I just saw Hackers (rented it at my local video rental place; looked like it had been sitting there since the day it came out since the case was so beat up. lol) and I loved it.

Their are of course errors with the technological aspect of it; like the computers had software and GUI that hadn't come out yet for that time period, but its a still a good movie overall. Some argue that the villain sucks, but, honestly, I kind of liked him. He didn't repersent a villain very well, but he was the main comic relief of the film. One thing I've heard (I have yet to actually see the second one) was that Hackers 2: Operation TakeDown has NOTHING to do with the first one. Different characters, Different time period, everything. I was also suprised ot see that Amazon doesn't have Hackers 2: Operation Takedown. I think it may have had some sort of ban put on it, but i'm not sure. It would be nice to have the second one though.

*Clap for Kevin Mitnick*

Another thing about the realness (I know its not a word, shutup) of the computers is that viruses aren't actually loaded that easily unless your the most u83r_133+ s(r1p+ k1DD13 around. I think they could have shown alot more of the actual hacking instead of just having them suddenly be in the government computers in 5 minutes; although then I guess it wouldn't be any fun for you normal users who don't know the difference between an AIM and Telnet. FYI, Real hackers don't say things like u83r_133t, only script kiddies do. The only time a real hacker (Someone who knows how to program and actually knows how computers work) says things like u83r 133t and h4x0r is when we are making fun of scrip kiddies.

My $.02

Enjoy
