Trivia

"ARF! ARF! GOTCHA", which appears near the end, when the Gibson is about to crash, is a reference to one of the earliest Trojan horse programs, EGABTR from 1985. Disguised as a graphics utility, EGABTR spread by email, wiped out everything on a victim's hard disk, and left only the message, "Arf, arf, Gotcha!" on the screen. "ARF" may also serve double duty as a reference to the German hacker group "Asoziale Randgruppe Frankfurt". See more »

A lot of fun to watch
28 October 2008 | by (Luxembourg) – See all my reviews

I'm working in IT for over 10 years now, and let's be clear: Hackers is a movie, .. there's nothing real about the "hacking" going on in the movie.

There's a few scenes that are horribly done (for today's standards) but all in all I loved the movie. The acting is OK, the soundtrack is great and it changes for the everlasting "chliché" of the IT Nerd.

It's a movie that could surprise you, especially with the amount of bad movies being released nowadays. It's funny to see Johnny Lee Miller and Angelina Jolie at the beginning of their careers as well.

If you're looking for light entertainment for one evening, ...
