    Sorry, this is probably one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Not only did the lead actor have the talent of a cabbage, but the entire thing looked like it was directed and written by a bunch of 40-somethings who were trying to appeal to a younger audience. The entire concept doesn't lend itself well to a special effects film and only ends up dating the movie worse than most. Sorry, this is probably one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

Watching it right after seeing The Wackness may have skewed my persepective, being that Wackness was a far superior representation of the 90's and all around film, but either way Hackers was still awful.

    Was this movie written by Kraft? I only ask because this movie like this lame joke is the cheesiest of all time. The only redeeming quality of this movie is being able to see Angelina Jolie partially unsheathed.

    This movie was pretty lame. Tried way too hard with the visual effects and ended up just making the movie look lame. The whole story of this movie was not interesting at all. This is one of those movies that you see and you would rather just forget about it. The main character Dade is just trying to impress Angelina Jolie the entire movie and its just hard to watch as he think hes awesomeThis movie was pretty lame.

This is one of those movies that you see and you would rather just forget about it. The main character Dade is just trying to impress Angelina Jolie the entire movie and its just hard to watch as he think hes awesome with his lame hacker name and his hacking skills that consist of randomly mashing buttons on his keyboard. I would not recommend this movie to anyone it is just terrible. Expand

    The movie was overall a really good movie with lots of humor in it. The acting was not the best and was sometimes awful, but all in all it was a really good movie to watch. The message was to show how smart somebody can be and with this they can use their brains to come up with something to ruin their lifes in the long run.

    Jolie, the daughter of Jon Voight, and Miller, a British newcomer, bring a particular quality to their performances that is convincing and engaging.
  2. A lot of attention has gone into the film's video games, computer imagery and costumes, to the point where simply watching these artifacts is half the fun...But eventually Hackers turns tedious, perhaps not realizing that an audience can get tired of the same old equations floating in cyberspace.

    There's not a slowly-paced scene or a dull moment to be found. If nothing else, this film won't bore the average viewer. However, when Hackers has been dissected, what's uncovered beneath the flashy skin is an old-fashioned, film-by-numbers thriller.
