Film Review

In the 1980's, arcade games were the gateway to gaming. Telephones were the gateway to talking. But, the computers were the gateway to anything. But, what happens when you hack into NORAD and accidentally starts World War III? Big trouble. That is the setting in WarGames. The high tech thriller about a teenager, who hacks into a computer system to play new games that released. But, the computer he hacked into is not a only a computer, but a WOPR. The WOPR is a computer that plays endless patterns of war-games. So, when the teenager hacks into the computer system at NORAD, the people soon prepares for World War III. Since WarGames, movies on the Cold War has escalated to Red Dawn and other movies about Soviet Union attacking the United States of America. That is an statement. But, what makes WarGames a hit is that it's characters are all in this situation together. With good story development and great direction from John Badham, WarGames a really good high tech thriller. 4/4…

this is a classic, fun thriller. in fact if there is one movie that encapsulates the 80's, this is it.however, it is almost ruined by john wood, the British alleged actor that plays the kooky scientist. yeah, i know the character is a poorly written west coast caricature type. i also know this actor has had a long career. still, his is truly one of the worst performances i have ever seen. cringe-worthy. just awful. funny thing is he teamed up with matthew broderick again a little later on in 'ladyhawke.' too bad because all the other character actors are fine, even memorable.

I enjoyed this film back in the day, even as a kid I watched it and could take in the rather interesting story. Granted, it is probably because I play video games so I loved the concept of playing these awesome games that the character Matthew Broderick played got when he hacked into the mainframe of the defense computer. The movie does though kind of change focus throughout the movie as it does start out as almost a comedy as the Broderick character starts out showing his computer hacking skills by changing his grades in the computer. Though how he gets away with this is beyond me as I would think that someone would go over the grades before they are actually printed on a report card. Still, it was funny as he and the character Ally Sheedy played became friends. Then he finds a computer mainframe that seems to have a lot of war type games in it and he decides that he really wants to play these games. Well he does a lot of research to find the password to enter the back door as it wer…
