Iain Softley's high-tech thriller Hackers comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1. An English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a theatrical trailer and a collectible booklet. This MGM/UA release does a fine job presenting the film, but offers nothing substantial in the extras department. Considering the inexpensive list price, this oversight is forgivable.

this is a movie about computers staring Angelina Jolie Jesse Bradford Matthew Lillard. its a early 90's flim when computers were invented and if it has Jesse Bradford in it then its defintley worth the buy trust me!!!
While this movie in itself was outstanding there was one little bug hiding deep in the sub tex... WHY O WHY did they have to use macs for the computers??? huh MUST they, I'm not but any self respecting hacker DOES NOT USE A MAC... and a powermac no less... AHHHHH!!!!..... ::Outie::
This movie was made in the 1990's, so obviously the computers are now obsolete. But it's still a powerful story, with strong and diverse characters. The main characters are Dade, Kate, Cereal, Nikon, and Plague. Dade, Kate, Cereal, Nikon were Teen Hackers. Dade was more than that. He was literally a computer genius. As a child he'd created a computer virus of legendary destructive capacity. Though he was no longer dangerous, nothing could confine Dade or the others to law abiding limits of cyber space. When an Arrogant Federal Officer goes after their friends, Dade and Kate proceed to harass him in return. They use various cyber attacks to make his life a living hell. For Dade and Kate, that was both a revenge and a duel. They were seeing which was the best. The ignorant Fed never knew what was happening. Plague was an adult Hacker. He hadn't any allegiance to company or country. He lived in cyber space and used his skills to steel vast amounts of money. Then decided to frame Dade, Kate, Cereal, and Nikon for his crimes. Those four were great, but not a match for the Feds and Plague. So they put a battle cry out on the web "Hackers of the World Unite" All across the globe others answered that call. In a powerful digital battle they showed the world who truly owns cyber space.
if you like the Matrix you'll love this one. the one is the best I hope for a 2 hackers movie that would RUle!!!!!!
If you dont know a whole lot about computers, and more specificly computer hacking, this movie will most likely appeal to anyone who like a sci fi tech thriller. If one the other hand you know about computers, this movie takes a turn into being a more comical light hearted movie.
Hackers is a great movie for those of us who grew up in this age of computers.I mean come on who never wanted to hack into a computer to change grades, credit card debt? It is one of those films you never can get sick of, with it's constant action and heartpumping techno music. The only bad thing is it was made in 1995, which means we're getting old. Hack The Planet!
This movie is a true winner. I saw it with some friends, and I got hooked. This is one of my favorites. I work with computers a lot, so I really understood what was happening. If I could sum it up in to 2 words, they would be: RENT IT!
I love this movie. I have seen it about 1000000000000000000000000000 times. Buy it today.
This movie is one of the best i've ever seen I recommend it highly. This movie has great music, great lines, and great actors.
This movie is for the person who loves suspense and a good tech thriller! Just buy it! that is all
this movie is awesome i watch it like every night when im on my com playing games, i have seen it over 100 times an know it by heart ''even god wouldnt be up this late'' i gtg and sleep, latz.
I remember the first time I saw this movie all my friends told me it was awesome, I went and saw it for myself and I have to say that I agree w/ them. Not only do you have some of today's biggest stars, Matthew Lillard, and Angelina Jolie, but it is so much fun to watch. You find yourself sitting on the edge of your seat durning some of the chase scenes. It's a great movie to watch w/ your friends so go and rent it, if you don't like it well then Hey! If you do, it won't hurt to go out and buy it and watch it all the time!
This movie is my most favorite movie of all times. Its the best movie to come out of the year 1995, with 2 major stars. The timing and how everything is put together is excellent. Their are no really bad parts to the movie and the music is the best with Prodigy and Orbital, which are the top techno music groups ever.
Don't listen to the people who say that this movie stinks!! This is one of the BEST movies that I guarantee you will ever see, I've had it for 4 years and the tape is worn out from me watching it so much!!!! That's how good it is! What are you waiting for? Go on! INDULGE!!! Show me where the disk is!! The music will get you pumped so much that you will want to jump on your computer, even if it's off, and start hitting keys for the fun of it!!! HEHE!!
Set when computers were slow and the world was unaware, these hackers attempt to break into a Gibson server and save the world. But their plans are foiled by an evil hacker, who has both inserted a virus and a worm to steal and destroy the company. These hackers have to face jail, a deception within their own numbers and getting the rest of the world on their side. This movie encompasses comedy, imagination and a romantic connection between two powerful hackers. Johnny Lee Miller and Angelina Jolie provide a unique and stylish look into the world of hackers!
There's no "8-page booklet" to be had here, just a DVD and a case. The original release did come with a booklet, but the 1998 reprint removed it in order to reduce productions costs. The newer case design reflects this change, no longer advertising a booklet amongst its features. B&N is advertising the original, but filling orders with the reprint. Hopefully they'll update this page to reflect the change. This is otherwise a great buy if you loved "Hackers" as a child, but it requires the same suspension of critical thinking as one might bring to any "Star Wars" film to fully enjoy.
This movie is frikin great. This is one of my favorites and it should be one of yours too.
From start to finish, this movie will keep you on your toes. The music is pumping, the characters are gnarly and the whole thing is just great! Go watch this movie now!!!
i think hackers was a great movie it showed that in todays world no one is safe from nothing and todays kids are smarter than you think
