Robert Redford leads an all-star cast in one of the most satisfying suspense films! Computer expert Martin Bishop (Redford) heads a team of renegade hackers - including a former CIA employee (Sidney Poitier), a gadgets wizard (Dan Aykroyd), a young genius (River Phoenix) and a blind soundman (David Strathairn) - who are routinely hired to test security systems. But Bishop's past comes back to haunt him when government agents blackmail the "sneakers" into carrying out a covert operation: tracking down an elusive black box. Along with his former girlfriend (Mary McDonnell), Bishop's team retrieves the box and makes a stunning discovery - the device can break into any computer system in the world. With factions from all sides willing to kill for the powerful box, Bishop and his team embark on their most dangerous assignment ever in this exhilarating high-tech caper from Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams).

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: There isn't much to Sneakers plot and that's more than made up for with the film's breezy panache and hi-tech lingo.
Right up to an ending designed to crack the sternest critical poker face, this is gourmet popcorn...

The performances are generally quite bad.

Discounting his god-awful American accent, Kingsley is in fine venomous form.

A smart, smooth technological thriller.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a thriller, not a shoot-'em-up action-adventure, and as such, there's no gore to worry about. There is intensity in that Redford's character gets knocked out and held captive.
