#1 Has to be that soundtrack

and those non-linear shots. Say what you want about the rest of the movie, but it was shot well.

When it came out, and for the next 10 years, most hackers HATED that movie. Until they all got old and learned to laugh at themselves.

Or just got old, and started loving youthful depictions of hackers, and realized that is the most exciting their lives are ever going to look


@GI_Jack i watched it back when it came out and at that time i was so fascinated by it even though I knew it was kind of dumb LOL the film put so much cool persona on hackers and I wanted to be like them LOL I was just a bit younger than the actors and that’s probably why. I kind of connected with them easily. TbH this movie actually made me even more interested in computers. Haha. These days I still love it and I still think it’s dumb 😝
