DIRECTOR: JOHN BADHAM

CAST: MATTHEW BRODERICK, ALLY SHEEDY, DABNEY COLEMAN

Long before hacktivism and computer counterintelligence were routine news items, there was WarGames. Matthew Broderick’s teen hacker accesses what he believes is a new game called “Global Thermonuclear War” and unwittingly triggers World War III, in a twisty, tightlyplotted suspenser briskly handled by director John Badham (Saturday Night Fever) that paved the way for dozens of inferior cyberthrillers.
