Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Though this scheme involves loads of important data, it manages to sound dopey all the same. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jan 14, 2011

Rotten: What's most grating about Hackers, however, is the guileless way the movie buys in to the computer-kid-as-elite-rebel mystique currently being peddled by magazines like Wired. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, May 3, 2013

Rotten: There is a great deal more style than substance here. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jan 14, 2011

Rotten: It gives you more insight into the minds of Hollywood hacks than of computer hackers. – David Kronke, Los Angeles Times, May 3, 2013

Customer Reviews

I like watching it even though it's full of crap. Guilty pleaseure.

Been a software developer for over 12 years and I know all the technology shown in this movie is a load of crap, even for it's time, but I can't help it, I like watching this film. It's one of my "guilty pleasure" movies.

Great *Guilty Pleasure* Movie, but IT'S CENSORED!!!!

I love this movie! It's mindless fun, which is all a guilty pleasure needs to be.

That being said, I was disapointed to see that this is the American version - IT'S CENSORED! My original copy is British and has an extra 15-20 minutes of scenes where the Hackers are picking on the FBI agent in charge.

Everything I Love in One Movie!

Rebellious technologically savvy teens turn heroes as they save the world from an impending virus with their hacker skills. It's a great story and a great movie! Angelina Jolie is perfect in this. Hacker's has a little romance, a little comedy, and action too! All around awesome movie.
