Sony should never have yielded to threats from terrorists. Yes, hackers are terrorists! What is the NSA doing? They can tell how many times I fetch my mail as well as the content of my voice mail, and yet they are not able to track hackers? I find this hard to believe!
Hackers are a menace as important as terrorists, as they threaten our freedoms. And it makes me so sick when some are taking their defense saying they are modern time Robin Hoods! That is bullshit. Hackers of all kinds are criminals, and must be treated as such.

This is regrettable indeed; however, if I put myself in the place of Sony, I would have done the same. Not that I am a coward, but I couldn't assume the risk of getting people killed because of me. If I don't make a mistake, the "hackers" menaced to bomb theaters where this film would be shown? Even if I doubt it would have really happened, imagine, one second if it did, if people were killed, I couldn't live with this on my conscience, and without wishing to be stingy, this could get colossal financial consequences when the families of victims sue Sony. These hackers have demonstrated their power of nuisance, so I don't think we should blame Sony too much for their decisions. Now, I am sure that this movie, which is certainly just a piece of crap, will leak online at some point.

Finally, this movie has been released. Sony's marketers did great in turning the bad buzz into profits. However, what concerns me is, how is it possible this movie has cost $44 millions?? Seems expensive for this kind of movie.

I bet it was just a marketing move to create a free buzz around the film -sHs
