Welcome to a new series of pithy video comments, spiked shorts, where spiked writers will offer a unique take on the events of the day. The series is produced with WORLDbytes, the citizen TV channel.

In this edition, spiked‘s film review Tom Slater looks at a new film, We Are Legion: The Story of The Hacktivists, which does its best to present Anonymous as valiant and dynamic activists, but only really lays testament to how fickle and shallow the group really is.

Tom Slater is spiked‘s film reviewer.
