"Operations of the syndicates are given a realistic touch by the screenplay, and Joseph M. Newman's direction keeps action at a fast pace. O'Brien is excellent as the hot-tempered, ambitious young syndicate chief." - Variety staff
"This may be director Joseph M. Newman's best movie; it's an exciting script and everybody contributes top work. Newman's crew is headed by super-ace cameraman Franz Planer, and the extensive use of locations makes the production look very expensive. Edmond O'Brien was on a noir roll at the time, just off the major hit D.O.A.. He's a mass of energy on screen -- nobody plays nervous better. We can see why women might go for the energetic, self-confident and optimistic Mal. Not blessed with matinee idol looks, O'Brien succeeds as a romantic lead by will alone. The actor delivers a great dirty dialogue line that surely sailed over the noggins of the clueless censors -- when he's certain that he's ready to demand a partnership with his boss, Mal shouts, 'It'll work -- now I got him by the short hairs!' That particular anatomical reference wouldn't be heard in a movie again for twenty years." - Glenn Erickson, Noir of the Week
"To its credit, Hackers recalls the pumped-up energy of Pump Up the Volume, as well as its casting prowess." -Mike Clark, USA Today
"The movie is well directed, written and acted, and while it is no doubt true that in real life no hacker could do what the characters in this movie do, it is no doubt equally true that what hackers can do would not make a very entertaining movie." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A plot thinner than an LCD monitor doesn't prevent the bombastic fun, and the young cast help it hurtle along." - Caroline Westbrook, Empire Magazine
