Sneakers involves a motley group of men, all outcasts. Each has a special talent in the computer or electronic field. Martin Bishop is the leader of this group. Together they perform numerous bank heists and computer frauds. One day Martin stumbles into a deal that could make them all a fortune...or get them all killed. It seems that he has squired a computer component that will unscramble any and all computer safeguards to any and all computers. Against the better judgment of the others, Martin agrees to sell the device to two federal agents. When Martin delivers the component to the agents he discovers that these men are not actually federal agents. He manages to get away before they can shoot him. Martin and his very peculiar group must now try to retrieve this component before it winds up in the hands of a former advisory, Cosmo, who will try to destroy America's monetary structure as we know it.

Featured Animal Action

Animal action was limited to one scene in which we see 1,000 geese standing at the water's edge. Trainers herded the geese to their mark in front of the camera and they were filmed acting naturally. Two tropical fish are also seen swimming in an aquarium as background in one scene.
