1. The main characters in the movie "Sneakers" are Martin Bishop (Robert Redford), Donald Crease (Sidney Poitier), Carl Arbogast (River Phoenix), Mother (Dan Aykroyd), and Irwin 'Whistler' Emery (David Strathairn). 2. The premise of "Sneakers" is that Martin Bishop, a security pro, along with his team, are blackmailed into stealing an elusive black box, only to discover its potentials for decoding any encryption system in the world. 3. The title "Sneakers" is a slang term for hackers, signifying those who break into systems for discovering security lapses. 4. The phrase "Too many secrets" is significant as it is the password needed to operate the decryption device, 'black box'. It also symbolizes the themes of deception, hidden identities, and the dangers of undiscovered information that pervades the movie. 5. Martin Bishop's character evolves from a hacker living under a pseudonym to an individual willing to confront his past, to protect those he cares about. His intentions change from selfish reasons to more altruistic motivations. 6. Cosmo plays the role of the main antagonist. He was once Martin’s hacking partner, but after spending years in prison, he becomes part of the organized crime world and forces Martin's team into misadventures. 7. "The Black Box" is a universal codebreaker that can decrypt any system, making it a powerful tool for surveillance, information control, and even financial manipulation. 8. The team of hackers, although having varied skill sets and personalities, cooperatively use their expertise in cryptography, surveillance, conspiracy theories, and technical savvy to steal and safeguard the black box. 9. Liz plays Martin's love interest in the movie and her skills as a professional mathematician aid the team in unlocking the mysteries of the black box. 10. The movie explores themes of government surveillance and personal privacy through its portrayal of unauthorized hacking, secrecy, use of invasive technology, and the constant threat of surveillance over the characters. 11. The ethical dilemma in the movie mainly surrounds the power and misuse of technology and information. Questions such as who should have access to information, how much power should be given to governmental bodies, and where to draw the line on privacy are explored. 12. The ultimate goal of the characters is to retrieve the black box and prevent its misuse, while also erasing their involvements to resume their normal lives. 13. The movie addresses the idea of technology's impact on society through the possession and potential misuse of the black box, highlighting how such a device could lead to major destabilization in the wrong hands. 14. Major plot twists include the revelation of Cosmo as a crime lord and the realization of the true destructive potential of the black box. Martin Bishop's real identity as a fugitive is another significant twist. 15. The resolution of the movie sees the team using the black box to destroy any records of their criminal pasts, while simultaneously blackmailing powerful, corrupt figures. It ties up loose ends by clearing their legal troubles and allowing them to go on living their lives.
