"Hackers" is an exciting cyberclassic about a group of gifted, misunderstood teenagers who enjoy hacking into computers but never to harm anyone. They are put in peril when one of them discovers a secret computer file hidden in the garbage of a supercomputer that belongs to a multinational corporation. He is subsequently arrested and charged with planting a virus that will cause oil tankers to spill over and create a natural disaster. He's innocent and completely clueless, and his friends set out to prove it, led by Dade Murphy/Zero Cool/Crash Override (Jonny Lee Miller), a gifted hacker with a secret. Dade is new to the gang but he is also the most talented. Dade faces tough but amorous competition with Kate Libby/Acid Burn (Angelina Jolie) a beautiful and intelligent hacker who resents his imposition on her life and her friends. They have to overcome this to defeat the villain, a mastermind hacker called The Plague (Fisher Stevens) who has himself planted the virus to cover up his attempt to defraud the company of millions using a sophisticated worm. The young hackers set out to prove this scheme, clear their names and earn respect from the adult authorities who mistrust and slander them.
