Families can talk about computer hacking and the ethics of the online world. Should information be shared freely or controlled? How would you feel if somebody hacked into your computer or if a virus damaged your files? This might be an opportunity to find out what your kid thinks about common activities like downloading music -- is it wrong to shoplift something from a store but okay to download music without permission?

Has mixed messages, yes, but the overall theme is positive.

Good film. I find it odd that the "Common Sense" profile for this film states that the film supports "The creation of destructive viruses is celebrated.", which is NOT TRUE because in the film, the hackers (i.e. the protagonists) work towards the end-goal of stopping the virus...
