First of all, let's clear up some common misconceptions.<br><br>This film isn't "Hackers 2". You will find no CGI or parachute pants here.This film is about the capture of the notorious computer criminal KevinMitnick who used his technical skills and ability to influence people togain access to things he really shouldn't have been able toaccess.<br><br>The thing that bothers me most about this film is the computer virus thatShimo wrote. I doubt that he did, and this makes Mmitnick seem worse bystealing it. The AI doesn't exist to put that virus around now, and itdidn't 3 years ago.<br><br>The film in itself is a work of genius. This is the only realistic hackerfilm i have ever seen. Maybe because it was based on a true story and toputspinning DNA molecules on the computer screen instead of C++ would be aloadof bollocks.<br><br>The acting is great; the pace of the movie is quick, especially in thepartwhen the FBI almost captures Mitnick for the second time. The portrayal ofthe FBI in this film isn't very good, when they apprehended Mitnick, theydidn't go in with 20 SWAT teams!<br><br>Kudos to Ulrich for his part as Kevin Mitnick, but as for Wong, I'm verysurprised, where's the glasses and the geekyness? I know where, it gotlostin the writing process, to make hackers look geeky and security expertslook'ard and sexy. In actual fact, security experts are just crackers inbusiness suits. Kevin Mitnick did no damage, but they chase after him likehe mass murdered a few police departments. I suppose they can't be totallyrealistic, and then the film would be an hour and a half of typing, with30minutes of chases and arrest.<br><br>I'm just glad there were no parachute pants ^_^
