Not sure about you, but I’ve thought so for a long time! I had a chance to watch it again tonight and thought, “Hey, what a great movie!” and naturally that led me right here of course!
The movie stars Robert Redford, Sidney Poitier, David Strathairn, Dan Aykroyd, River Phoenix and of course Mary McDonnell. It chronicles the adventures of Martin Bishop (Redford) as he leads his group of merry men who specialize in testing security systems. When he’s backed into a corner by the government for some college indescressions, he and his team steal THE cryptography black box and enter into a game of danger and intrigue!
Its a somewhat ligh-hearted and all too geeky formula for a good techy movie, especially in 1992 when it was released. Now, most of the “high-tech” security systems they show being tested in the movie, we see every day.
But my favorite part of the movie comes in a dialog between Kingsley’s character and Redford’s Bishop.
The world isn’t run by weapons anymore, or energy, or money. Its run by little ones and zeroes, little bits of data. its all just electrons!
