    It's a combination of a cyberpunk crime film and a teen comedy, but yes it definitely counts as cyberpunk. They even named the computer "The Gibson" after William Gibson the author who created the cyberpunk genre

            It doesn't depict hacking accurately.
            Which is fun enough to mock as a teen. And we've all made the jokes between friends and eventually at Defcon once we were grown ups.

            But really, the reason people of the trade still love this movie is that despite not depicting the reality of the trade it's still accurate in the sense that it depicts the idealized feeling of being a hacker. We all wish we were this cool. And that's all you can really demand from art.

            Hackers captured the spirit of an era. Not many films can claim to have done that.

              You mean because of all the flashy CGI sequences or?

              It takes an entire half of a brain cell to realise that the CGI sequences are obviously just for style, the movie doesn't try to present actual hacking as 'you fly through a digital cityscape looking for files'. Doubly so when the movie gets so much other shit right like the terminology and other aspects of hacker culture.

                I don't remember a single instance of hacking being accurately depicted in the movie. It's always some sort of garish, frantic, video-game-like flying through cyberspace kinda thing. Which is more cinematically compelling for young audiences, I guess, and fits the overall aesthetic of the movie, and really it works because the movie is so unabashed about it. Even the little software UIs are way too flashy and noisy, they went all out with stylistic exaggeration.

                Very few people used the internet back in 1995, the vast majority of people had no idea how coding or hacking even worked, the very idea of the internet had a futuristic aura to it, and 90s pop culture was all about "radical sports" and "adrenaline", so it makes sense they would depict hacking as a radical sport, as surfing or skating your way through perilous cybernetic landscapes. Did most viewers back then realize this was all bullshit, that real hacking looks nothing like that? I don't think so.

                the first scene is zero cool calling the dumb ass cable/phone operator and conning him into getting the Ip address for the router or some shit. Thats about as accurate as you can get when it comes to hacking. You have no point cause people more knowledgeable then your zoomer ass actually know how hacking works. FFS its a major plot point in the movie that SYSADS use shitty passwords like sex or god. Password guessing and social engineering is how most shit is hacked, fricking boomer moron homosexual this site is for nerds, not normie facebook rejects.

                The writer legitimately did his homework researching and interviewing real life hackers and going to their meetups. It's an extremely stylized movie but a lot of the fundamentals of old school hacking are pretty fairly represented.

                The intent was absolutely to create a pictorial metaphor for hacking, as confirmed by the director and producers and actors. It's not a literal representation of what hacking is. And it works since hacking is fricking boring, while the movie Hackers is not boring.

                But "metaphor" is not an apt word here. It's more like a pretend reality where hacking is like playing an exciting video game. And back in 1995 that would seem more plausible to audiences than it does now. Most of us had never used the internet and our idea of the near future was shaped by futuristic advertising aesthetics (the mid-nineties was the period when consoles went 3D, for instance).

    The late 90's early 00's still had people taking their computers to stores to get upgrades that seam mundane these days. We didn't have easy access to websites or commonly have family members aware of websites that sold shit relatively cheap with the knowhow to install it. Most people have no idea what hacking is like now. You had to radicalize the concept, so it looked moronic to anyone familiar.
