Computers and floppy discs aren’t always fun and games. I liked this movie, I thought Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy were really fun. The thing that ultimately kills this movie though is the technology. It may have been really neat in the early 80’s but it looks pretty bad today. If there was any movie that deserves a reboot from the 80’s this one would be good with today’s technology. Sure you can’t replace young Matthew Broderick (unless he has a son) but I think it would be fun to see a revamped version. Still, for how bad the computers look, the movie does provide tension that you can cut with a soldering iron. So grab your dial-up modem and get ready for some green and black text that will blow your mind in this hacking thriller.
