Computer hacking isn't really a spectator sport, so movies will embellish hacking scenes with funky visuals, inane jargon, and supercomputers that run on magic and prayer. Here are 10 of the most awesomely groanworthy hacking scenes.
Fortress occurs in a dystopian future where Christopher Lambert and his wife are jailed for violating the regime's one-child policy. The movie has many classic bits, particularly the scene in which the cyborg warden spies on the inmates' sex dreams. Another great sequence is the film's final hacking sequence. John Brennick (Christopher Lambert) and D-Day (Jeffrey Combs) upload "D-DAY'S REVENGE VIRUS" just before John's wife gets an unanesthetized C-section. Also note the system's hamfisted password: "CRIME DOES NOT PAY."
