HACK THE PLANET! Jonny Lee Miller, Angelina Jolie, and Matthew Lillard star as high-school hackers caught up in international intrigue in this, arguably the most ‘90s films the ‘90s produced. Penn Jillette (Penn & Teller), Lorraine Bracco (Goodfellas, The Sopranos), and Wendell Pierce (The Wire) co-star. “[T]his engaging and lively exploitation fantasy-thriller about computer hackers, anarchistic in spirit, succeeds at just about everything The Net failed to.”—Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
