Critic Reviews of "WarGames"Chicago ReaderJuly 30, 2013
Classic humanist-didactic filmmaking, effectively presented as a thriller.ReelViewsApril 30, 2009
To me, the most enjoyable aspect of WarGames is when David is at work on his computer system. There's something wonderfully nostalgic about watching a guy play with such antiquated machinery and recognize that it was [once] considered state-of-the-art.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
John Badham solders the pieces into a terrifically exciting story charged by an irresistible idea: an extra-smart kid can get the world into a whole lot of trouble that it also takes the same extra-smart kid to rescue it from.Denver PostMarch 14, 2008
As tense and effective now as it was 25 years ago. The worry back then was more about Soviet missiles than about credit card identity theft, but good filmmaking techniques haven't changed.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
The first half has a sardonic edge to it, but the more seriously the movie takes itself the sillier it gets.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
As a premise for a thriller, this is a masterstroke.Total FilmJuly 30, 2013
What keeps it remarkably fresh is an unpatronising approach to what is ostensibly a kids' thriller, and a set of ideas (remember when Hollywood used them?) that rightly consign all the cradle modems and dot-matrix printers to the margins.TV GuideJuly 30, 2013
Slick and suspenseful, though a little heavy-handed.Radio TimesJuly 30, 2013
This inventive nail-biter is very much a product of its time -- blending the arms-race unease of the early 1980s with the beginning of the home-computer revolution -- but it still manages to both grip and entertain.Film4July 30, 2013
Time might not have been kind to the look of WarGames, but with nuclear war still a very real threat, the picture's ability to manufacture suspense remains undimmed.Christian Science MonitorJuly 30, 2013
It's far too simplistic for comfort -- and downright dangerous if it makes anyone think today's self-destructive forces will bow jovially out of sight as soon as we grown-ups loosen up a little.
