We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists

JOY REVIEW

We Are Legion is a very good documentary that takes on Anonymous, which is a phenomenon on the internet that basically was there to stir up trouble and make people unhappy.  And then the Revolution in Egypt happened and the government cut off access to the Internet, and these guys taught the revolutionaries how to get back on the Internet, and they feel they were a legitimate, and probably rightfully so, part of the revolution.  And now that they’ve become so powerful, including getting the government’s interest, where do they go from here?  Four stars.
