About this movie

The Hacker Wars takes you to the front lines of the high-stakes battle over the fate of the Internet, freedom and privacy. The Hacker Wars tells the tales of the anarchic troll provocateur Andrew "weev" Aurenheimer, prodigy hacker hero Jeremy Hammond, and incendiary watchdog journalist Barrett Brown — three larger than life characters whose separate quests to expose the secrets of empire hurled them into a fateful collision course with shadowy corporations, the FBI, and ultimate betrayal by one of their own. 2014 Over 9000 Pictures LLC 2015 Entertainment One Film USA LLC.

The Hacker Wars is fast paced and spot on when it comes to filmmaking and how to tell a story. This is a thriller masquerading as a documentary. But wait this incredible story is actually the world we live in. Welcome to the Orwellian present. These anti-heroes are really fascinating and their enemy is the US Surveillance State. Oh Big Brother. This is one hell of a ride if I say so myself!

I knew about about the information in the documentary but didn't know the details that they explain. And wow to the trapwire. That's scary. They tested it out to see if it was real too. Wow. I recommend every see this, to realize how important the internet and freedom is to us.

I'm not going to be the one who ruins a great movie's perfect rating. This movie really show the front lines of what is happening with the black hats (malevolent hackers), and the white hats (good hackers) as well.
