War Games 1983

From Amazon: Cute but silly, this 1983 cautionary fantasy stars Matthew Broderick as a teenage computer genius who hacks into the Pentagon's defense system and sets World War III into motion. All the fun is in the film's set-up, as Broderick befriends Ally Sheedy and starts the international crisis by pretending while online to be the Soviet Union.

War Games Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/11/2007)

Ridiculous and dumb movie from the era where computers were first being introduced to the mass public and thus fears became all about them taking over our lives and, of course, our defence.

Matthew Broderick stars as a teen who just happens to man the National defence system's war game, making the army think that the...
