Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

 

Sneakers
Directed by Phil Alden Robinson
Universal Studios Home Video 09/92 DVD/VHS Feature Film
PG-13

Robert Redford stars as a computer hacker who in the 1960s used his talents in anti-establishment activities and in the 1990s heads a company that tests business security systems.

His coworkers include an ex-CIA agent (Sidney Poitier), a blind audio specialist (David Strathairn), an ex-con wiretapper (Dan Aykroyd), and a young computer wiz (River Phoenix). Their combined skills are tested when government agents hire them to find a master decoder that can break into any computer program in the world.

This techno-thriller directed by Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams) reveals some of the morally questionable uses of computer power in our highly reverenced Information Age. Equally disconcerting, the film gives us pause to consider how scary our world would be without secrets, mysteries, and privacy.
