With a very interesting set of “technical advisors”.
A number of the scenes in the movie were homages to real life hacks.
Flare gun dumpster diving defense
Manipulation of havoc and fire control systems
Marking someone as electronically deceased
Lots of inside jokes…
1995: The movie "Hackers" was released. It grossed $7 million at the box office against a budget of $20 million. Ouch. A box office failure, but today it's a cult classic.
Crash Override. Rollerblades. Acid Burn. Floppies. Hack the Gibson!
