Still a good movie

Still to this day one of the best hacker'dish movies out there. Not all - dare I say "none" - of the real hacking is "cooler" than is depicted in this one. Social engineering is still very much used.

I still watch this movie on occasion, a warm, understandable movie that doesn't try to make everything super high tech and thus fake.

Hilarious and fun!

If you read a plot synopsis, nothing will seriously be ruined for you, but if you just pop in Sneakers and let every scene unfold without any prior knowledge, it'll be an extremely entertaining ride! Without giving too much away, because I'm an advocate of the second type of viewing, Robert Redford is the head of a secret group of hackers, including Sidney Poitier, Dan Aykroyd, David Strathairn, and River Phoenix. Everyone has skeletons in their closet, Robert Redford in particular, so when they're threatened to take on a particular case, they've got no choice but to accept.

The entire team has great comic timing and chemistry together. Robert and Sidney make a few jokes about getting older, but they really don't look much older than their heydays. I'd never seen David Strathairn in a movie before, and he was so convincing in his role as a blind man, I thought Hollywood was starting the career of an actually blind actor. Sneakers is a fantastic movie with a perfect blend of humor, action, suspense, and romance. It's full of quotable lines and memorable scenes. If you don't start laughing the next time you hear someone say "password", you probably need to watch the movie again. Every time I watch it, I get inspired to chop off my locks because of Mary McDonnell's adorable haircut. It's one of the cutest do's ever!

Not so sneaky

This movie is indeed fun, bolstered by some really strong performances, that of Strathairn, the much lost Phoenix, and the much underused Poitier, while I did like Ackroyd's hairdo. Steered by not the strongest performer, though Redford had a very natural flair for the role, he plays a genius and still wanted hacker who becomes embroiled in the past, when he's called upon/forced to steal this black box, and deliver it to the CIA. Complications do arise for him and his impressive team of counterparts, when they make a second attempt, where Redford's first solo one fails. Definitely thrilling and intriguing, as far as the hacking angle goes, I'll give you that, but really, when it comes down to it, the film doesn't really add up to anything special sitting between good and ordinary. Kingsley is great as always as Redford's betrayed hacker friend, now a nemesis, while Macdonell, adds sexy appeal as the lone female co star.
