Editorial Reviews

Based on an incredible true story, this intense high-tech crime thriller features Skeet Ulrich (Scream), Donal Logue (TV’s Grounded for Life) and Russell Wong (Twisted) in an amazing all-star cast! For years Kevin Mitnick (Ulrich) – the most notorious computer hacker in the nation -- had eluded federal agents while using the latest electronic gadgetry to break into countless computers and gain access to sensitive and valuable information. But when he breaches the system of leading computer crimes expert Tsutomu Shimomura (Wong), it sets off an epic chase through cyberspace between a pair of hard-driven geniuses operating on different sides of the law! Also starring Tom Berenger (TV’s Peacemaker), Christopher McDonald (Spy Kids 2), Master P (Hollywood Homicide) and Amanda Peet (The Whole Ten Yards).

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takedown/Track Down November 6, 2005
Format:DVD
Takedown and Track Down are basically the same movie with Track Down having a couple very minor, barely noticeable edits. "Little F*cker" is edited out in Track Down after the FBI agent gets his lights cut off; And of course the title is changed in the intro. Other than that, I didn't notice that many more edits but there could have been other subtle edits.

Takedown/Track Down is really an incredible action movie, especially if you like Kevin Mitnick or hacker/tech movies. The cons, in my opinion, is the stuff the director,screenwriters, etc made up. There's a long list of made up stuff like Contempt (Mitnick really copied the NokiTel code and other secret software like the Berkeley Packet Sniffer developed for the military to go onto a Unix system without needing a reboot to work), confrontation with Tsutumo near his Seattle apartment and other inaccuracies. It could have been more widely accepted without the inaccuracies, especially from Mitnick, himself, who boycotted the film and sued because of the inaccuracies. If you can slide the inaccuracies to the side, it really has some outstanding qualities. Real and cool hacking scenes which I wish the movie Hackers had. The big hacking scene where Mitnick does the first ever public IP Spoof hack on Tsutumo's work and home computers is one of the coolest scenes of the movie, it's really a work of art! The sped up effects, eerie music of Ulrich typing on the keyboard and accessing the system, top notch! The music is really quite good, a mix of ambience, alternative rock, it's just too bad they didn't release a soundtrack for this movie ..yet. I have made a fan version of the soundtrack that I'm still working on getting together all the songs. [...] if you can contribute any of the rarer ambient songs in the movie. Enjoy this great movie!

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad--did the 2600 protests help it in rewrite? November 7, 2005
Format:DVD
I saw this after watching "Freedom Downtime," and I have to say that if they'd seen the final script they needn't have bothered to protest. The film is quite sympathetic to Kevin Mitnick--he comes out as more of a sympathetic character than Tsutomu Shimomura does (and "wins" in the end despite jail). There's no trial scene, there's no garbage can lid scene (contrary to one of the reviewers, who seems to be reviewing the initial script rather than the final product)--Mitnick is not portrayed as violent in this film. Sure, they took some liberties with the facts to try to make it more entertaining, but that was probably necessary.

Watch for the real Tsutomu Shimomura in the scene where the actor portraying him is speaking at a conference--he's sitting next to Donal Logue (the Lewis DePayne, er, Alex Lowe character), who is giving Shimomura a hard time (as the real Shimomura laughs).

It is amusing that one of the best scenes in the movie (in the strip club where Lowe and Mitnick are meeting with an "Agent Steal"-like character named Icebreaker) comes out of Jonathan Littman's _The Fugitive Game_ rather than the Shimomura and Markoff book. Littman filed a copyright infringement suit over it, according to Kevin Poulsen's review of the DVD on The Register (Feb. 13, 2001).

4.0 out of 5 stars surprised me. March 27, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
this movie surprised me, i enjoyed it a lot more than i thought, and was actually on the edge of my seat. especially cause it's based on a true story and is quite accurate.

i watched it again a couple of weeks later and still enjoyed it and then i read "the fugitive game" (available at Amazon.com!!!) i got that book instead of the one the movie was based on, because of the comments of users and it was written by a third party so i felt it would be less biased.

ANYWAY, if you have any interest in computers and find "the art" of hacking to be interesting......check it out!

ah... the movie that is, not the "art of hacking", just something to live vicariously thru the movies!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Accurate. But Worse, It's Incoherent. January 17, 2013
Format:DVD
"Trackdown", called "Takedown" in Europe after the book on which it is based, is one of those unfortunate attempts by Hollywood to make current events into slick entertainment. It was released in 2000 in Europe, just months after Kevin Mitnick, its hacker anti-hero, was released after serving 5 years in prison. The script was primarily based on the book "Takedown" by computer security expert Tsutomu Shimomura and New York Times journalist John Markoff about the efforts to catch Mitnick. The book has been much criticized as exaggeration and hype. Interestingly, one of "Trackdown"'s writers, John Danza, found the more sympathetic account of the same events in "The Fugitive Game" by Jonathan Littman more interesting, and tried to incorporate that perspective into the script. The results are thematically confusing but did result in a lawsuit by Littman against Miramax. Kevin Mitnick also sued for defamation, which was settled out of court.

As the film begins, Kevin Mitnick (Skeet Ulrich) is on probation for unspecified computer crimes, and his friend Alex Lowe (Donal Logue) is trying to convince him to give up hacking. But Mitnick is a compulsive hacker. An FBI informant tries to impress him with information about a service that would allow Kevin to access FBI wiretaps, a ploy that backfires when Kevin acquires access and listens to the informant and his FBI handler. Then the film skips 2 years. Kevin is now targeting a computer security expert named Tsutomu Shimomura (Russell Wong), ostensibly provoked by Shimomura's testimony before Congress. Kevin threatens Shimomura over the phone, denies him access to his work computer system, and deletes and steals a large encrypted file.

It had a lot of fiction. Didn't go with the facts. Strictly for entertainment I guess. Just what Mitnick said lots of lies about him

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad
I expected less from a movie that I'd never heard of. It tells the Kevin Mitnick story without being a documentary. A little over the top at times but not bad.
