Cast:Phil Alden Robinson, Robert Redford, Sidney Poitier, Ben Kingsley

In the thriller Sneakers, a group of five renegade computer hackers, led by Martin Bishop (Robert Redford), are hired by the government to steal a black box, containing a code-breaking machine, from the mathematician who invented the device. The government is able to persuade Martin to take the job by convincing him that they will drop a decades-old federal warrant for his involvement in computer fraud. Martin agrees and he takes his team on the mission, eventually taking the box. Shortly after the hackers have stolen the device, the mathematician turns up dead. Though Sneakers is a little too leisurely-paced, it is an entertaining thriller, featuring fine performances from the all-star cast (Dan Aykroyd, James Earl Jones, River Phoenix, Sidney Poitier, Ben Kingsley).
