Matrix Sequel Has Hacker Cred

from the in-a-Hollywood-production?--who-knew-it-was-possible? dept

Techies seem to enjoy poking fun at various movies that try to show hackers at work - since they always get something (and often everything) wrong in a terrible Hollywood attempt to show hacking to a general audience. So, imagine their surprise to find out that some hacking scenes in the Matrix sequel (no, I still haven't seen it) seems to show real hacking tools being used properly. Considering the Wachowski brothers' attention to detail, I guess it's not that surprising.
