After Richard Gill's credit card is canceled by Dade, the scene cuts to the card being swiped through a machine by a waiter. The card is run through the reader "right side up", with the Mastercard logo at the bottom. The magnetic stripe is at the top of the card and could not have been read this way. See more »
The people who made this film, should consider buying a computer
First of all: The movie does not rate "Hackers" as bad guys, but then again, neither does the good, old "Wargames" feat M. Broderick. One positive comment.
The movie depicts a computer environment far from what is reality, and what makes is even worse is the *frantic* use of technical computer terms. Like RAM or Pentium i.e.
As to my knowledge the crew made a decent background survey on the "Hacker community", prior to writing the script. What is unbelievable to me, is how much they failed. Even "The Net", feat. Sandra Bullock, has a better grasp on reality. This movie just has to become a "Cult" movie for all those who doesn't know a computer from a Toaster.
